  1. A week ago Sunday we were awaken at about 3:00 AM by the most horrific thunderstorm, that light up the sky and shook the house. I've never experienced anything so intense. We were in the midst of a heat wave with 100 degree temperatures and experienced one of those freak "dry lightning" events. That morning, my wife and I commented on how lucky we were that there wasn't a fire. Well that turned out to be premature. We drove to the beach for a walk with the dog and then hunkered down at home to avoid the afternoon heat. At around 4:20, I stepped outside for a break, and that's when I looked up and saw a huge cloud of smoke billowing from over the hills to the south. This was the view from the roof of my house: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/california-river-fire-salinas-monterey-county-1801300195 The neighborhood was abuzz with activity but the authorities hadn't yet called for an evacuation. Here is a shot from that evening: The next morning, the field workers were working as usual as the fire burned nearby: That afternoon, Cal Fire arrived with a fleet of helicopters. They collected water from the local pond to douse the flames. I took these shots from next to the pond: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/helicopters-collect-water-buckets-local-pond-1801313815 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/helicopter-pilot-collects-bucket-water-pond-1801392601 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1803493255 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1802697325 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1802855740 Then I went back to the house and took some shots from my roof as they passed by: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1803465634 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1803501433 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/salinas-california-august-17-2020-cal-1802880979 By Tuesday the fire started getting close to houses just up the street and we were given evacuation orders, first advisory then mandatory on Wednesday: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/california-river-fire-salinas-monterey-county-1803496585 We ended up staying at a (dog friendly) hotel for 6 nights. In addition to the helicopters, they used a large 747 jet to douse the flames with retardant. They also used bulldozers to make firebreaks and lit backfires to protect the houses. In the end, only one nearby house suffered damage to its deck. Cal Fire saved the day and we were allowed back home on Monday! THANK YOU CAL FIRE!

  12. I've started uploading photos to Shutterstock a week ago, there are 26 approved photos in my Portfolio and none of them have been sold yet. This is really disappointing or maybe I've been doing something wrong, if you can please help me. Tell me what am I doing wrong or what kind of photos should I be uploading.

  13. Hello, friends! Please rate my small portfolio. Am I moving in the right direction?
  14. When you got a big batch of photos you want to upload, let's say that you want to start seeing results right away instead of in a week. Assuming that 80% or higher of, let's say, 150 photos are approved on Shutterstock, would you try to upload all the photos and get them all reviewed in one fell swoop, or do you upload batches of them, one at a time? When I uploaded my first 130 photos here, it took about 5 days to get them all evaluated, in which almost all of them were rejected. That's in comparison to 20 photos, which were reviewed in two full days. See, I don't know how the review system works within Shutterstock as a new contributor, but considering I want to try to get as most of the uploaded photos onto my portfolio as possible, which would be the fastest way? Submit all of my 150 photos in one setting, or upload 20 photos for now, have them reviewed, and after some approvals and rejections, upload the next 20 and so on? In the long run, getting 150 photos submitted and reviewed may be faster, but it's possible more time may be lost because of editing required in order to get rejected ones approved, or some photos simply can't be uploaded because I don't have permission to do so. I can't control how fast the photos are reviewed because it's not my role to review them to see if they can be put on my portfolio and up for sale. But I can control how frequent or big I upload them.

  20. I was recently offered a Media Opportunity by Shutterstock to interview with CNBC and to my surprise they used my quote in their article, there's even a link to my website. I am a very small player in the world of Stock Photography but I love the challenge. Thank you Shutterstock for the opportunity. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/10/working-in-retirement-can-pay-off-big.html
  21. Hello! I submit jpeg images that have clipping paths. But when customers downloads it, even in Large size, there is no clipping path in it. Why Shutterstock cuts off clipping paths from jpegs? As I know, Shutterstock have supported clipping paths in jpegs some time ago. Best regards, Vasily Menshov
