BrightQube, Inc. is a privately held firm based in Carlsbad, California, that operates a stock photography website, selling licenses to use royalty-free photos and images. BrightQube was started in 2007 by Lee Corkran, a decorated combat photographer for the United States Air Force. Prior to founding BrightQube, Lee held various management and executive positions at Digital Railroad, Hewlett-Packard, Eastman Kodak, Yahoo! Photos, PictureIQ and Pixology.

As of May 2008, BrightQube was offering more than 3 million royalty-free images, from more than 40 collections.Mike Allen, [ "BrightQube Imaging Firm Lands Angel Funding"] , "San Diego Business Journal", May 15, 2008] BrightQube attempts to distinguish itself from its peers by offering a "pageless" search interfaceJulie Giles, [ "FITC Award Winners 2008"] , "FITC", Apr 23, 2008] . Further, as of May 2008, BrightQube was the only stock photography marketplace to offer both high-end royalty-free images from both professional collections (such as those from Getty Images, Corbis, and Jupiter Images) "and" microstock photography in the same shoping cart. This is reflected by an inventory that ranges from $1 to over $500, at that time.
