I was honored to be part of a photoshoot last month at Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe. Our goal is to increase representation for people with disabilities by expanding free stock photography library available on Pexals and Unsplashed. With an estimated 56.7 million people living with some form of disability - yet within visual media people with disabilities are severely underrepresented, making up only 2.4% of speaking roles in film, 2.1% of roles in television, and 2% in stock photography. Thank you for letting me participate in my dream job! - #drinkresponsibly 🍺🍻anheuserbusch fourpeaksbrew 10barrelbrewing goldenroadbrew gooseisland oregon_adaptive_sporimaaronbaker #ElevateBeer #ReeveSeeUs #sci
Traditional stock photography and cinematography platforms can make it difficult for artists who produce work that’s more experimental to make a quid and grow creatively. stocksyunited is a cooperative platform that raises the bar on the artistic standard of stock photography and video footage, while at the same time creating a community for artists to seek inspiration from each other and share their ideas.
In the latest issue three photographers, who have very different styles, share their story and why it works for them.

sixtysixmag says about our studio: Graphic design, art direction, photography—CactuSoup (cactusoup) has been doing all this and more for businesses and institutions for about a decade. Cofounders Francesca Basile and Blai Baules also spend about half their time creating stock photography for stocksyunited (an art-forward stock photography and video footage agency), making colorful graphic photo illustrations that tell a story in a single image under the name of CACTUS Studio.
A few weeks ago, Francesca and Blai called Sixtysix from their studio in Lleida, Spain, to talk about their creative process and their respective backgrounds. Link in our story! #craftofcreativity
