I just received e-mail from Shutterstock - I assume targeting contributors given the e-mail address used - advertising ShutterTalk "Turn Your Passion into Cash"

Not clear if it's designed for those considering becoming contributors or existing contributors who could improve with help:



I'm in the Seattle area and Toronto is a little far to go for a 2 hour workshop :)

They know my address, so I'm not sure why they'd send this out to someone so far from the site. I've never received anything like this from them before - has anyone else?

I've got one too, its a bit too short notice for me to travel across the country. I'd like to go though.

Yeah, nice gesture, but a bit deer flying in from Dublin.

Maybe a raise would help me on my way

I'll actually be in the US on that date, visiting friends in Maryland, but obviously I'm not going to Toronto for a 2 hour 'workshop'. Why Toronto anyway? If it was at the New York HQ I might have been tempted.

I got it too. I am not too far away but still. They should have done something online like a webminar or something, that would be more efficient.

Or spend the tickets and hotel rooms :-)

Sorry for the confusion - it looks like the email went to a broader group than intended...looking into this.


Thanks - if something like this happened nearer to me (Seattle) I'd jump at the opportunity to have a portfolio critique and suggestions. Lack of interest in a Toronto event doesn't mean lack of interest in the idea :)

Well, the GOOD news is, ;) is that we're going to be doing more events around the world, and we already have an informal program of personally meeting with contributors in cities and countries in which we're either traveling or have a presence.   So stay tuned.  This one just happens to be in Toronto. 

:D

Best,

Scott

Has anyone been to any of these SS meetings/workshops before? 

I am in Ottawa, so I'm a 4 hour drive away.  I'm considering going, but want to have a bit more info before I decide to make the trip.

I'll be running this event in Toronto as a Canadian Community Leader. It is for Canadian contributors and primarily focused on Canadian content. But, as Scott said, there will be events like this happening around the world, in the US, and other parts of Canada too. Building the Shutterstock community, making information about creative briefs available, and helping new and existing contributors connect with meetups, workshops and events is the goal.

Anyone in the Toronto area, looking forward to seeing you there. Even if you're not a Canadian contributor, you're certainly welcome. The information will be relevant for all stills and video contributors.

Ditto.  But I would like to point out one key differentiator that once again sets Shutterstock above the other micros.  ShutterTalk.  How novel to set up specific interactive opportunities to communicate with their contributor base.  While I won't attend until they come to southern California, thanks for doing this, Shutterstock.

Sounds like a great opportunity, well worth the 2 hour drive.  I'm in!

Stacey, could you be more specific about the agenda and who the guest speakers will be?

Elena,

Do you realise that your 14k+ images are still available (full size, at $1 a pop) at the Dollar Photo Club?

See here;

Why haven't you opted out yet?

Well, why don't make a pod cast or even retransmit in direct the event on the web (Shutterstock site)?

We're looking into this and we're working on more video- and text-based educational materials, in-person events, etc..., translated into multiple languages.  For any single event there will be some logistical considerations, but if we can live-stream a specific event or make a video available through the blog, we will!

Best,

Scott

Good to hear there might be some live streaming in the future.

My ideal for how this would operate would probably be like Creative Live. They have online chat monitored by someone at the event so questions can be asked and answered during the time it's happening, plus you can watch the video after the fact if the live time doesn't work. Not sure how many places there are where that sort of setup is available (i.e I know nothing about the logistics, just that I like how their stuff works as a consumer of their web events.
