Roth Stock History

The History of Roth Stock Pictures

Roth Stock Pictures got its start as Roth Stock Digital Media. Opening on January 1, 1995, we were one of the first web design studios in the industry. Our first website went online June 26, 1995. If you ask Mr. Roth, he will tell you, “It’s not done yet!”

We are “Content Creators For a Multiplatform World” and have been online and uninterrupted ever since.

Soon after opening the company, our founder, Lee Roth, won a web design contest for HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, opening the doors to our work in Hollywood.

2018: A New Name and a Renewed Focus

While the term “Digital Media” was all the rage when we got started, today, if you’re in media and you’re not digital, you’re a dinosaur destined for extinction!

While our focus will always remain in photography, the word “Pictures” allows us to continue our growth in film and video as well. If it’s good enough for Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures, it’s certainly good enough for us!

2016 and Beyond:

Over the years, Roth has amassed a wealth of relationships with entertainers, executives and creatives at all levels of the entertainment industry. It is these relationships that Roth Stock Pictures draws upon today as we expand into film and video.
