CPA Media is a News and Features Agency based in the historic and attractive northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. Our Online Features Library showcases hundreds of illustrated articles on Asian Art, Culture, History and Travel. In addition to our core features business, CPA Media specialises in historical and contemporary images of Asia and the Muslim World through our Pictures From History archive. Cognoscenti books is the e-publishing branch of CPA Media. Our blog is regularly updated with news of our latest image collections, ebooks and articles.
PICTURE SEARCHES: CPA Media stock currently stands at around 150,000 images, including some 60,000 historical images and 90,000 contemporary images. We are constantly expanding our contemporary digital stock, but the process of digitising older historical images is necessarily slow, requiring careful colour correction, cleaning, captioning and wherever possible provision of more detailed information. We are working systematically to digitise our existing stock, but if you have a specific requirement or area of interest, please let us know. If you need historical images of the Spanish-American War in the Philippines, of the Cultural Revolution in China, of Egypt's Queen Cleopatra or of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine - whatever you require, we will do our best to meet your needs swiftly and professionally.
COMMISSIONED PHOTOGRAPHY: We have more than 25 years experience of conducting commissioned photo shoots for customers as diverse as National Geographic, APA Insight Guides, Thomas Cook, Dorling Kindersley, Frommers, Berlitz, AA Publications, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the United Nations and many others. Our main areas of expertise - through long years of familiarity - are Southeast Asia, South Asia and China, but we also have professional experience as far afield as Syria, Uzbekistan and Cuba.
Please don't hesitate to CONTACT US if you require more information.
