Creative Connection

Adobe Stock goes Photokina

Adobe rocks Photokina 2016 – that goes without saying, right? Of course Adobe Stock, our stock photo service with Adobe Creative Cloud integration, will play a major role at this year’s top photo event as well. The great thing is: We will stream each of the talks live from Photokina on the Adobe website daily from 9:30am BST.

What makes a successful stock contributor? Can I turn my talent for photography into money? What kinds of images are on trend and sell well? These questions (among many others) will be answered by our line-up of internationally renowned Adobe Stock contributors as well as Adobe experts in a series of top-class talks streamed live from Photokina on the Adobe website, at the daily Meet & Greet and at the Photokina Community Stage and Photokina Motion Stage. You can tell there is a lot in stock for you!

His perfectionism, paired with ease and love of detail, is clearly reflected in his Adobe Stock Premium portfolio.

arnetrautmann

Arne Trautmann aka Kzenon

Arne Trautmann aka Kzenon is a special Adobe Stock contributor in two respects: For one thing, he is a copyright and media lawyer and therefore a proven expert in the legal aspects of image use.

In addition to these industry pros four well-versed Adobe experts will reinforce the line-up: Zeke Koch, Senior Director of Product Management Adobe Stock, Morgan David de Lossy, Product Manager Adobe Stock Contributors, Dennis Radeke, Content Development Manager Adobe Stock und Murat Erimel, Head of Marketing Adobe Stock / Fotolia (DACH) will provide first-hand insider information.
