Experienced & Innovative People


Jerry Tavin. The Man with the green sneakers. 

Jerry Tavin is known worldwide as a stock photo expert for his success in the stock image business, never compromising on quality and ethics and most notably for his green sneakers.  His enthusiasm for photography, advocacy for photographers and his entrepreneurial spirit are unmatched in this industry. 

In 1994 Jerry co-founded nonstock, a high-end worldwide photography collection highly respected for its unique, cutting edge and compelling imagery.  The business was subsequently acquired.

Joe Panker. Idea guy. 


Joe's vision of a stock GIF marketplace was born out of need  - a desire to license Gifs for commercial purposes in his Agency life.


Dedicated to a difference, Glasshouse Images is a specialized stock photo and representation agency in Manhattan catering to creatives looking for exceptional and distinctive imagery with a clear commercial spark. Offering stock GIFs is a natural extension of the Glasshouse Image's brand, providing discerning clients with exceptional imagery, and artists with ethical representation for worldwide licensing.
