It’s been two weeks since our Shutterstock Stories kickoff, and we’ve been receiving some fantastic submissions! For those of you still in search of inspiration, we’re pleased to share an outstanding submission from footage contributor Elliot Burlingham.

Upon joining his father Bill’s photography studio in 2003, Elliot added his video-production skills to the list of the Evanston, Illinois-based company’s services. Since then, Burlingham Productions has become a highly regarded, full-service photography and video studio, as well as a valued Shutterstock contributor.

Check out Elliot’s Story below, and then submit your own for a chance at a share of $75k in artistic grants!

Shutterstock Stories submissions are being accepted until Friday, August 30 at 11:59pm EDT. Full rules and submission guidelines are available here. Happy storytelling!
