Graphic Designer Turns Photographer, Meet PhotoSpin's New Artist, Todd Arena

SAN PEDRO, Calif. - November 23, 2010 - PhotoSpin, www.photospin.com, a leading provider of stock photography by subscription signed hot new artist, graphic designer turned photographer, Todd Arena. Todd started expressing his many talents when he was just a little boy by building cool things out of Legos, drawing Star Wars characters in his sketch book, and playing music by ear on his little electronic keyboard. He is a 28-year old graphic designer who, not surprisingly, morphed into a full time stock photographer. After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic / Info Design, Todd worked as an in-house designer, designing everything from custom magazines, advertisements, logos, corporate identity, trade show booths, billboards, websites, and other custom marketing materials. Tired of the tight deadlines and high stress of the corporate world and disillusioned by the touted glamor of the graphic design world , Todd decided it was time to take control and build his own business by applying his skills to stock imagery. Todd enjoys the wide range of freedom that stock photography provides and likes the fact that there are no revisions to make or proofing to get approved by another party.

"Having an artsy job that pays the bills is a blessing; because to me, using my creativity doesn't feel like work. When you love what you do, it's said that you really don't work a day in your life. I feel very honored and privileged to be able to be a part of the visual communications field, and hope that I can continue to do so in the years to come. Photospin has been an incredible place to both buy and sell stock imagery. You can't get much better of a deal, if you're an image buyer," said Todd Arena, www.arenacreative.com/blog/

Todd's images can be purchased either individually or through a PhotoSpin subscription service.
