Photographer Spotlight: Ross Couper

There’s no other way to put it: we are absolutely in love with Ross Couper‘s wildlife photography. When he sold a collection of seven images earlier this month, featuring his sale was an easy decision. See below for the rest of the winning batch of photos, along with a quick Q&A with Ross on just how he captures these brilliant beasts in action. These photos were all found by buyers using our reverse image search tool, which means having images in our Global Marketplace was key.

Thanks for your time, Ross!

Stop Men Dying Young – Movember

It’s the month formally known as November, and you know what that means – time to grow the Mo. Didn’t get the memo? Thirteen years ago, November was crowed ‘Movember’ by the Movember Foundation to raise awareness for the current crisis in men’s health.

Men are dying too young – on average, four years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable. Thanks to the foundation, every able-bearded man can now take the Movember challenge and grow out his ‘stache in the name of good health.

If you’re not blessed with facial hair à la Paul Bunyan (or if you’re a female – guilty), you’re in luck – that doesn’t exclude you from participating in our Movember BrandBrief campaign.

We’re helping the Movember team to do things: 1) raise awareness for the Movember movement and the men’s health crisis and 2) send people to their donation page. Interested?

Simply download BrandBrief from the App Store if you haven’t already, find the Movember campaign, and donate a post for this great cause.

How @shoesofNYC Took Instagram by Storm

As Forrest Gump famously said: “My mama always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where they going, where they been.”

It all started with a text – a cool photo of shoes (of course), a quick grab of a soon-to-be very important Instagram handle (@shoesofNYC) and a casual inquiry of interest – what do you think? What followed: thousands of photos, thousands of stories, and 32,300 (and counting) Instagram followers.
