Independent Picture Service: an introduction

Welcome another member of our Photo Editing team, Todd Strand. Todd is our Archivist & Photographer, which makes him uniquely qualified to tell you about another facet of Lerner Publishing Group:  Independent Picture Service, a Lerner Universal Corp. company.

Independent Picture Service provides photos for books published by the Lerner Publishing Group and also has four public internet sites to browse and buy images. The Independent Picture Service collection ranges from world travel photography to locally produced studio images.

I was fortunate enough to travel to Israel in 2012 with Harry Lerner, Sandy Davis, Andy Overman, and others, and added to the growing number of images in the collection. Below are a few images from the trip.
