How BigStock Became a Close Friend

Having a multi-tasked life is really a joy. I love doing photography, and luckily I’ve stumbled into the highroad of being a photography writer. Not all my images are suited for some of the articles I write; therefore I’m always on the pursuit of engaging photographs that can efficiently illustrate my ideas.

Photography and Writing is a big part of my freelancing activities, but on my fixed job behind the operation seat of a Web Developing and Branding Solutions Studio I have found that engaging content is crucial for our success. Presenting demo sites to our clients is easier when we can show almost-finished websites with images that are keen to our client’s businesses. We are living in a visual culture, in which gray boxes and death text are not easily understood by our clients.
