My iStock Portfolio – 10,000 Images and Growing

I recently added the 10,000th photo to my stock photo portfolio at iStockphoto.com. I carefully timed it so the above photo would be #10,000 as a bit of a tribute to the accomplishment. It’s been quite the journey since I uploaded my very first image to the site back in 2005. In the 7 years I have been on iStock, I’ve:

– Had over 150,000 downloads
– Taken stock photos in six different countries
– Had my work published worldwide in 1,000’s of publications and websites
– Met a lot of great people
– Grown my portfolio on Getty Images to over 2,300 images
– Became a member of the iStock Inspection Team
– Worked with 100’s of fantastic models
– Opened a standalone photography studio

…and at the top of the list – left a camera on a subway in Tokyo on October 28th, 2010 which led to me meeting a truly wonderful woman :)

Creating stock photos is a seemingly never-ending growth process for me. As I begin working on the next 10,000 images, I’m extremely thankful for the journey I am on.

Photowalking Temple Square – 12.20.12

1 Comment

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and that means it is time again for Photowalking Utah to make our annual outing to Temple Square in Salt Lake City to photograph the holiday lights on display. This will be the 6th year in a row to hold this event.  It really doesn’t seem that long ago that we held the first Holiday Light Photowalk.

This year’s event will be held on Thursday December 20th beginning at 7:00 pm.  The group will meet at the statue located at Main Street and South Temple.  From there we will venture onto the Temple Square grounds to photographically capture this year’s wonderful lighting display.

It probably doesn’t need to be said, but PLEASE dress WARMLY!  Nothing can take the fun out of this event quicker than a frozen extremity.  Tripods are also highly recommended.  For those photographers who do not have a lot of experience taking nighttime photos, there will be several Photowalking Utah volunteers on hand to assist in capturing a great shot.

As always, there is absolutely no charge to participate in this event. Photographers of ANY skill level are invited to join in.

Head on over to the Photowalking Utah Facebook group if you have any questions or would simply like to say you’re coming. I hope to see a great group on the 20th.
