Gina McNeely has been a picture researcher and photo editor since 1995. In 2007, she established Gina McNeely Picture Research to assist clients in finding and licensing compelling photos and footage for media projects. Her close proximity to the vast public domain collections at Washington, D.C.’s National Archives and the Library of Congress enable her to provide clients with quick, high-quality and publication-ready digital imagery, often with no licensing fees.
ALWAYS ON TIME. ALWAYS ON BUDGET.
BRITISH HERITAGE MAGAZINE
British Heritage Magazine is noted for stunning travel photography sources from commercial picture libraries and tourism offices throughout the United Kingdom. As part of the editorial team, Gina gathers and selects images that best complement the stories, while ensuring that the magazine’s budget and deadlines are met.
WAR IN THE PACIFIC
Gina was contracted to produce a coffee table book of 400 rare World War II color photos by a London-based publisher. She was able to digitally scan about 75 percent of the photos from the National Archives’ public domain collections and worked with international commercial sources to license the remaining images.
THE FLATIRON BUILDING
Gina worked as part of the team producing this 30-minute documentary for WNET’s “Treasures of New York” series. She researched the producers’ list of photos, artwork and film, locating many from public domain sources. Other items were licensed from historical societies, libraries and commercial sources.
