Hello all, and thanks for all of the nice welcomes.  My username is rrockafellar, and you will see that I need to get a better avatar, as I am embarrassingly silhouette-like at the moment.  I am looking forward to working with you all.

We're looking forward to working with you too - welcome!

Rock on Kelly! I hope this means less travel time for you. And more delicious restaurants. And of course a very fulfilling role within the company.


Rebecca, congrats on the new position. Best of luck

Too bad the chart doesn't show that per upload, 4/5 contributors are making half as much as they were a few years ago.


Too bad it doesn't also show how many people have had their life changed by this company over the years either.

That is correct. I am one of those!! My life has changed since I decided to become Exclusive Contributor. Me and my family are very happy to be able to live from our hard work contributing to iStock success. Thanks for all that and we will be here making better images every day.

And changed again in the opposite direction, particularly for those who were here long before kk came along and who made it possible for him to be our "leader".  I wish him the best of luck and this sounds like a good position for his (please don't call us soccer mom snapshooters again though) talents.  I think you are a very bright man and that your intentions are good. I think finding the right market for particular kinds of images is the right way to go.  It seems as though we have been throwing whatever we have at anybody who will look.  I really, really do wish you success at this, despite my criticism before.  So I say this in all good faith, which I have had in IS 8 years ago next month (discounting the last year unforutnately, which has been a difficult time for us all).  I am glad to see a reorganiztion of talent that will enable us all to realize the best potential we have.  I will never compete with the contributors who use all of their Vetta slots every month.  But I think I still have a place here. 


Rebecca, I welcome you most enthusiastically. You have been around long enough to know what the IS spirit means to so many of us old timers. Good luck to you in your endeavors. I ask only one thing, please keep us informed and provide some transparency into earned income.


And to the rest of the IS staff, I admire you all and understand the difficulties you have endured.  And I hope you are provided with resources to do away withthe monthly bug list.


I appluad this move.  Good luck to you all.

WOW...I love this place! Every change has moved me up, up, up! Kelly you are coming to my Territory! I live about an Hour from NY. Anything you need, just let me know. I met you in Calgary, and always wanted to visit Getty Headquarters. Can I visit you there?


Rebecca, Welcome!


Kelly, New York  sent up fireworks for your arrival!

I'll be happy to arrnage a portrait shoot for you and I'll even do it for free*. I can't guarantee I'll be able to make you look as good as I made myself look in this shot:

... but I will do my best!


* I will shoot you for free** but you'll have to get yourself down to Sydney, Australia for the shoot


** I will shoot you for free*** but you will have to sign a model release


*** I will need you to guarantee a BM boost for all my shots or guarantee they will all be Vetta or Agency

Congratulations to Kelly and welcome to Rebecca!


I have one question though, it seems like you are now making the COO a part time job. Does this mean that iStock will be getting less attention from the top management? Should we expect the end of the world as a result of this, like only the iStock community can?
