Science photo image collections
As experts in scientific and specialist imagery, we source from institutions, expert photographers and organisations throughout the world. We are unrivalled in the breadth of our library and in some cases are sole representatives. This is because of our expertise but also because of the mutually beneficial agreements we offer our contributors and the care each image receives.
Perched on top of the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii, the CFHT and its 240-megapixel camera give us unparalleled views of the Universe. The CFHT is unusual in devoting a portion of its observation time to making images based on aesthetic rather than purely scientific criteria.
