Maya Bogle, our delightful co-founder of Talenthouse, has been passionate about our mission to support the global creative community since our launch in 2009. She wants to ensure creatives like you, are heard, seen, and paid, by creating opportunities for inspiration, recognition, learning, collaboration and income. She’s here to thank you for being a part of the EyeEm experience, to thank you for your beautiful visual contributions, and to highlight just how important your work is today.
“We can’t thank you enough for being a part of our tremendous, global community, as we work together to ensure realistic, respectful and authentic representation of communities all over the world.
"The EyeEm community is global, diverse, and incredibly talented. We’re a bit obsessed with you all, to be honest. Our brand partners know that they’re in safe hands with you when they’re sourcing imagery for their businesses. There’s nobody better to bring true representations of localized perspectives to the spotlight, than you, our talented family of creatives.
"Now more than ever, it’s important to have visually arresting, creative work that ‘cuts through the clutter’ which is why we’re launching the Creative Trends Initiativeas we want to equip the EyeEm community with valuable insights.
"This Creative Trends Initiative is the first of many that will be coming your way. We can’t wait to offer you more opportunities to expand your portfolio, to earn from our brand partners and our own incentive pool that we’ve set aside for you, our community.
"Within the Talenthouse family, we passionately believe that great creativity can come from anywhere. We’ve built a model that supports the democratization of the creative industries. We are giving any creative, of any sexuality, ethnicity, faith or location, the opportunity to showcase their creative talent, practice their craft and make money from their work.
"Visual content should seamlessly work in any local environment and speak in the right tone of voice. For example, some photography from South Asia can feel very ‘staged’ and shot in a studio, rather than from within the actual neighborhood or community it’s claiming to represent."
"You are an extraordinary community that achieves this every day from every corner of the world, and we couldn’t be more proud and in awe of you. Please let us know what you think about the initiative - we’re here to make it work for you.
"Thank you for joining us in making the world a more beautiful place.”
