I just wanted to share a little bit about some recent exciting work I have been doing with a company called Lightstock. Lightstock is an online provider of fresh, creative, faith-focused and professional Christian Stock Photography that was launched by brothers, Jon and Josh Bailey, in November 2012. Their company was built due to a lack of meaningful, faith-based content for Christian designers to work with, as well as a desire to enable Christian photographers to use their gifts and talents to serve the Church and bring glory to God through the work they do. They donate 10% of their gross profit to notable charities, and users are even able to create boards to organize photos (kind of like Pinterest), as well as request specific photos to be taken.
I feel very privileged to be part of the work that Lightstock is doing because I love art, but personally, I don’t want to “do art” just for the sake of “doing art”… but rather to find meaning and purpose in what I am doing… and to inspire and tell stories through the photos I take. I was recently asked to share my story, which you can read on the Lightstock Blog, and you can also see my photos in my Lightstock Portfolio, which is continually being updated.
If you or anyone you know is in need of beautiful, Bible-based Christian images for churches and other ministries, please check out Lightstock. The work is really well-done and powerful. The Bible is often hard to visualize and sometimes difficult to understand, but the images created here give us a little hint in imagining what it might have been like in Biblical times and what it means to follow Christ.
Have a blessed weekend, and Happy Easter!
