Both An Illustrator and Photographer, Meet PhotoSpin's French Artiste Christophe Rolland

SAN PEDRO, Calif. - February 18, 2011 - PhotoSpin,, a leading provider of stock photography by subscription introduces French artiste Christophe Rolland, also known as Chrisroll.

"I'm trying to be not only a photographer or an illustrator, but to provide content of both. Perhaps because I simply can't choose between...," says Chrisroll.

It was a good decision for Chrisroll because he excels at both. The work of Walt Disney seems to ignite the creative flame in many artists and Chrisroll's talent kindled when, after discovering Walt Disney as a child, he began drawing. Then at age 10 he became interested in photography. During the holidays, he'd wake up at 6 a.m. to take pictures of birds and rabbits with an old praktika. After discovering the work of Stephen Dalton, who specialized in taking photos of insects in flight, Chrisroll tried to take the same type of photos using a self made infrared motion detector and achieved good results. Later, in the 90's, he discovered 3d illustration with TrueSpace 3.2 software. Chrisroll began working in the microstock industry in 2005 and found it was a good way to earn extra money, learn more about photography and illustrations, and continue to improve his skill in both. Chrisroll's interests do not stop at creating images for microstock. His next goal is to learn more about studio photography.

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