4. Jennifer Bogle: I was contacted by Offset back in the summer of 2014, after they saw my work on my blog. Submitting to a stock agency wasn’t even on my radar so I didn’t respond right away, but a few friends did. I got a follow-up email a few months later and jumped on it. I’ve been a contributor ever since

6. Lisa Tichané: I received an email from Offset last year, saying that my work would be a wonderful addition to the growing Offset collection. I have to admit that I didn’t know what Offset was at that time – the world of stock photography was totally new to me. I was pretty reluctant at first because I had heard so many bad stories about stock, but when I started to browse the imagery in the Offset galleries I was hooked. It was so different (and so much better) than what I expected. Such a unique collection!
