03 Oct 2008 Kelly Cline – Microstock Celebrity
The Microstock Celebrity series now turns its attention to exclusive Diamond iStockphoto contributor and media darling, Kelly Cline. She is also appearing on the Microstock Superstars panel later this month, which prompted this well-overdue profile.
Kelly is a big time microstocker thanks to frequent appearances in mainstream media, most prominently in the famous Penny Stocks article in the New York Times. I’ve been following Kelly’s Twitter profile for over a month now and I can confirm that her reputation as a ‘food nut’ is justified. She lives food, and thanks to great photographic skill, she makes her living taking photos of it. Being a professional food stylist helps, plus she only ever uses real food, which always gets eaten when shooting is done.
