StockPhotoTalk: The Evolution of Photography in the AI Era

Welcome to StockPhotoTalk, the foremost authority on the stock photo industry, reimagined and spearheaded by me, Amos Struck. While this platform has a storied history under the insightful guidance of Andy Goetze, today, it stands as a testament to the merger of classic stock photography expertise and the revolutionary capabilities of AI.

Embracing the Future: AI & Generative AI

The stock photo realm isn’t just about capturing the perfect shot anymore; it’s about understanding and leveraging the immense potential of artificial intelligence. Generative AI, in particular, has emerged as a game-changer, enabling the creation of images that are not just visually stunning but are crafted pixel by pixel through algorithms. As we move forward, StockPhotoTalk aims to be at the forefront of these discussions, deciphering how AI’s role will shape, challenge, and expand the boundaries of traditional photography.

Partnerships & Affiliations

Throughout my journey, I’ve been fortunate to engage with and understand the operations of industry giants like Adobe Stock, iStock, and Shutterstock. Their evolution, strategies, and forward-thinking approaches provide our community with endless discussion points and learning opportunities.

Speaking Engagements & Industry Representation

My passion isn’t confined to the digital realm. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege to represent the voice of the stock photo community on various platforms, including CEPIC. Sharing insights, debating trends, and envisioning the future of photography in the age of AI has not only been fulfilling but has also solidified StockPhotoTalk’s position as a beacon for the industry.

Join me, and together, let’s explore the vast, exciting world of stock photography in an era where technology and creativity intertwine like never before.
