STOCK POT IMAGES: LAUNCHING 4/20/2015
Stock Pot Images is the first stock photo agency to specialize exclusively in cannabis-related imagery. We feature rights-managed and royalty-free photography and illustration. Our selection reaches far beyond the small number of stereotypical images currently offered by major stock agencies. We curate from a select group of up and coming photographers, and we work with them to create the content that will fit the needs of the burgeoning cannabis industries. We believe in working as a team with our contributors, because in this way we both flourish and thrive.
Stock Pot Images targets healthcare, ad and branding agencies, as well as corporate and emerging industries that will need cannabis images to service a new market of users. State by state, marijuana prohibition is ending, and the cannabis industry is evolving into a nascent economy that will reach all segments of our society.
We plan to be the agency art buyers come to first.
Why 4/20? 420 is not a police code -- a group of five San Rafael High School friends known as the Waldos - by virtue of their chosen hang-out spot, a wall outside the school - coined the term in 1971.
One day in the Fall of 1971 - harvest time - the Waldos got word of a Coast Guard service member who could no longer tend his plot of marijuana plants near the Point Reyes Peninsula Coast Guard station. A treasure map in hand, the Waldos decided to pluck some of this free marijuana. The Waldos agreed to meet at the statue of Louis Pasteur outside the school at 4:20, after practice, to begin the hunt. They never found the secret garden, but the legacy of "420" spread because of their proximity to the counter-culture of Marin Country.
Art buyers: Please contact us and we can arrange a sneak peek into the Stock Pot Images gallery. We are also offering custom libraries for in-house use by offering production and the services of our top photographers, videographers and illustrators.
