Having traveled to over 75 countries with camera in-hand, photographer and Adobe Stock Contributor Tasha Van Zandt is on a quest to discover how interconnected the world truly is through her documentary films, photography, and an insightful style of visual storytelling. Among her chief concerns is to connect people to the importance of climate change, the effects of which she has experienced first-hand in recent travels to the islands of Mo’orea and Tahiti in French Polynesia. By extension, Van Zandt offers her stunning photography through Adobe Stock, allowing others to use photographs she’s already taken to tell stories of their own.
“As I move forward in my work and travels I hope that my photographs and films can act as a passport and help viewers to better see just how interconnected we all truly are,” Van Zandt shares. “One of my current goals in my work is to get more photographs of social and environmental issues directly into the hands of policy and change makers. I think so often the opposition to correcting these issues stems from lack of personal connection so I strongly believe that the more we can create a personal connection in our work the more we can inspire change.”
Though social change and climate awareness is at the core of Van Zandt’s work, her keen eye captures the undeniable beauty and mystique of every location she visits around the world, images which you can now find on Adobe Stock. Adobe Stock is seamlessly integrated into Creative Cloud applications, so you can search, view, edit, and license photographs, videos, illustrations, vector graphics, 3D assets and more without leaving your creative workflow. Monthly subscription plans are available for individuals, small teams, and enterprise solutions. Learn more about plans and pricing on Adobe Stock.

Digital Artist Ingrid Tsy Uses Adobe Stock Assets as the Foundation of Her Wildly Imaginative 3D Artworks
Inspiration for a creative endeavor can come from anywhere: music, art, movies, or maybe a good book. While digital artist Ingrid Tsy relies on many of these to kickstart her 3D renderings, her process isn’t as straightforward as picking up a pencil or camera. Tsy instead draws a direct influence from existing imagery—like assets found on Adobe Stock—as the foundation for her digital designs that have caught the attention of clients like Adobe, Lexus, and the Coachella music festival.
In this new series, Tsy used a number of photographs and textures available through Adobe Stock as the building blocks for her inventive digital sculptures. Tsy finds time every day to create a new digital sketch, spending 30 minutes to over an hour until an idea fully manifests itself on screen, a moment where everything “clicks.” See how Tsy transforms images from Adobe Stock into a new original artwork in these videos from Adobe Create Magazine.
Like Tsy, you can find inspiration for your next creative project at Adobe Stock. Adobe Stock is seamlessly integrated into Creative Cloud applications, so you can search, view, edit, and license photographs, videos, illustrations, vector graphics, 3D assets and more without leaving your creative workflow. Monthly subscription plans are available for individuals, small teams, and enterprise solutions. Learn more about plans and pricing on Adobe Stock.
