Citizen_Stock_Examples_2010

Citizen Stock, a New York-based "source of fresh, new stock photography images featuring real people,"  just launched CitizenStock.com.

Citizen Stock co-founder David Katzenstein tells me that a "large percentage of the talent currently on the site" came from Back Stage, so check out their extensive database of photos to see some nice pics of Back Stage readers. Katzenstein also says, "This is an ongoing project, so we need an ongoing stream of talent to grow the library."

So if you're interested in getting some professional shots of yourself for your portfolio, you might want to apply for a Citizen Stock photography session. Registration is free; no fees are required for the photo sessions. Deferred pay. You can always find Citizen Stock's newest casting notices available on BackStage.com by visiting http://tinyurl.com/CitizenStock. More info is also available at CitizenPeople.com.

CitizenStock.com notes, "The real people who model for Citizen Stock originate from many parts of the U.S. and from a diverse group of countries all over the world. They all find their way to a photo studio in Manhattan's Noho neighborhood where they pose for award-winning photographers Sherrie Nickol and David Katzenstein. Photographed against a white background, and in a series of activities and clothing, the real models offer a unique and accessible collection of images for the advertising, design, and media industries. Citizen Stock offers a consistent blend of emotion and style and a depth of unique, high quality imagery."

New York, NY (PRWEB) --  May 20, 2010 -- It’s all about being real.

Citizen Stock today launches a groundbreaking stock agency that offers art buyers a premium library of photographs documenting real people and their emotions. Created by assignment photographers Sherrie Nickol and David Katzenstein, a husband and wife team, Citizen Stock (www.citizenstock.com) is one of the first stock photo agencies devoted solely to portraiture of “real people.”

The models aren’t professional models, but children, moms, dads, grandparents, skateboarders, lawyers, teachers, musicians, chefs, artists, office workers, clothing designers, shop clerks, and small business owners, to name a few.

In addition to homegrown New Yorkers, the “real” people who model for Citizen Stock originate from many parts of the U.S. and from a diverse group of countries all over the world. They all find their way to a photo studio in Manhattan's Noho neighborhood where they pose for award-winning photographers Nickol and Katzenstein.

Photographed against a white background and in a series of activities and clothing, the “real” models offer a unique and accessible collection of images for the advertising, design and media industries. Citizen Stock offers a consistent blend of emotion and style and a depth of unique, high quality imagery.

“We launched Citizen Stock because we want to develop and build a library of beautiful images for the commercial market that integrates the spirit of the people we photograph with the needs of our clients,” says Katzenstein, an award-winning commercial, corporate and fine art photographer with a keen interest in cultures around the globe.

Adds Nickol, a commercial and fine art photographer known for her striking portraits and her explorations of the relationships between people and their environments, “photographing hundreds and hundreds of diverse people has been an exhilarating and rewarding experience. Everyone who walks into our studio and joins our Citizen project has a fascinating story to share with us.”
