Ted VanCleave
Founder, EVP 

Ted is a business development specialist and photographer. In 2008 while living in Los Angeles, Ted found his iconic photos of the Hollywood Sign being used by a major media company, an accounting firm and even an attorney, all without a license or permission. Frustrated by the inability to recover lost licensing fees, he teamed with friend and former co-worker Joe Naylor to launch ImageRights. Drawing from his decades of business development experience working in Silicon Valley and later in San Francisco at the inception of the World Wide Web, he helped build ImageRights into the largest and longest established service of it's kind.
