Thank you for the offer Challiyil Pavithran Vipin, I currently sell some of my images through Getty and but I am always open to new things.

I have never heard of its something I will have to look into but if you could give me an idea of what to expect (make from my images) then It would help my decision.

Thanks again.

Additional Notes

For this shot I wanted to play around with splash photography and who wouldn't after +Alex Koloskov 's amazing work.

I quickly found out my studio strobes are far too slow (long light bursts) to capture moving water and I didn’t have enough speed lights to do what I wanted. so I came to a compromise but at any rate it was a fun experiment.

As for the drink.. I love the normal Crabbie’s drink but the orange version is new to me and I will test it soon.

I hope you all enjoy.


Two soft-box’s at the front left and right, a strobe at the back left shooting some card on the back right (to act as another softbox/rim light) and a strobe shooting my grey wall to white.
