What Should I Shoot for Lightstock?

Of Christians, By Christians, For Christians

Acts 2:42-47 Acts 2 lays out key practices for believers, known today as, “The Four Marks of the Church”.

Apostles’ Teaching // Bible study and discipleship

Common Life // Day-to-day fellowship with believers

Breaking of Bread // Christ-filled Community gatherings

Prayer // Intimate connection with God and others

These four areas are what Lightstock’s photo library is built around. As customers browse search results they see and sense worship. Whether they’re viewing an open Bible or a family engaged in prayer, they’re finding images that both glorify God and meet their needs.

The challenge and mission for Lightstock and its Partners is to take these types of photos in new and creative ways.

Beyond Bibles & Bent Knees

Having a photo library stacked with Christ- filled essentials is amazing, but what gets our blood pumping is the creation of high- concept Christian stock. There are designers and photographers who have an uncanny ability to visually express challenging concepts in a deeply meaningful way and we want their artistic vision to be seen. Here’s what we’re talking about...

How do you shoot Salvation?

How do you show someone ‘Hiding God’s word in their heart’?
