What is lobster?
Each and every day, billions of images and videos are being created which are more authentic than stock photography. But it’s time-consuming to find and source something that perfectly fits your brand, media campaign or story. That’s why we created Lobster - to do the heavy lifting for you.
Lobster’s Artificial Intelligence and algorithmic engineering uses image recognition alongside with metadata to find high quality (and relevant) real-time content anywhere on the planet. Content created by regular people, just going about their day to day lives - original, unusual and genuine.
Behind the technology, our ethos is one of honesty and fairness. For every purchase, we give 75% of the fee to the contributor, as we’re keen to create a rewarding experience for everyone.

LOBSTER PROVIDES AN ALTERNATIVE
For marketers, digital agencies, and web publishers, finding media they can use as part of their digital campaigns or on their websites can be a pain. Today if they want to use imagery from around the web, they need to either find content that is freely available as part of a creative commons license or license it from various professional media clearinghouses.
