It’s “Portfolio Update” day here on the blog, and today I’m featuring two new (short) series that are available exclusively at Stocksy United.  One features some adorable baby chicks to help herald in Spring, and the other series is for the Jewish holiday of Passover, which, by the way, begins the evening of [...]

As you may have gleaned from my recent posts, I’ve been trying to get more “real” and “authentic” images into my stock image portfolio at Stocksy United.  One theme I’ve been trying to hit hard is the idea of “local businesses” or “craftspeople”.  Recently, I had the opportunity to team up with a [...]

For this week’s portfolio update, I’m featuring a brand new series and a series from a few years back, both on Stocksy United, and both celebrating the Spring holiday of Easter.  It’s actually great timing, because one of the images was featured in today’s Stocksy United email promoting their Easter gallery.
