Shutterbuzz Is Go!


Hi from Shutterstock! For the last few weeks we’ve been building an interactive blog for our contributors. Today we’re pleased to introduce you to Shutterbuzz! What you’ll find here:

  • The heart of Shutterbuzz is an archive of articles about creating stock photography, illustration and footage, which you can navigate using the green sidebar on the right-hand side of every page. Scroll through it to find our best tips, articles and important Shutterstock resources. You’ll find reviews of top cameras, links to legal information and much more. We’ll be editing this index to better suit your needs as Shutterbuzz grows.
  • A blog of new posts about the latest Shutterstock happenings. This will eventually become our main channel for posting announcements to Shutterstock contributors. (Fans of the Shutterstock Forum, don’t despair. The forums will still be a place to talk to your peers in the Shutterstock community.)
  • Community-Submitted News. Have a fun story you want to tell? A piece of gear you think is really great? A question you think other contributors can help answer? Write it up and share it as a community post! You’ll find a link at the top of every page to Community Posts, where you can see posts from readers or submit your own using a form. Posts will be held for moderation. When approved (assuming they aren’t spam), they’ll appear on the community page for others to read and comment on. We will promote the most interesting ones to the main Shutterbuzz blog feed.
  • Stories by and about the people behind Shutterstock—especially contributors, their influences and how they do their best work.
  • A search box to help you find archived stories.

Our goal is to make Shutterstock contributors the best-informed, most enthused, most creative and highest-earning artists in the known universe. With your help, we’ll be adding lots more articles in the coming months to make Shutterbuzz a must-visit destination.

You can visit Shutterbuzz at, or follow it with our RSS feed. We’ll also be posting Shutterbuzz announcements on our Twitter and Facebook channels. Shutterbuzz is a companion to our existing blog for customers, the Shutterstock Blog.

Enjoy this new resource and please tell us what you think! You can write to with feedback about Shutterbuzz. (As always, you can contact our contributor support team at
