Thousand Words Photography®
where it all started
Thousand Words Photography® ("TWP") began in 2013 as a premier wedding photography agency.
By Oct 2015, with over 600 photographers, TWP had shot, or contracted for future shoot, over 3700 weddings. 2013
A Pivot Point
In Jan of 2016, TWP pivoted and re-launched as a multi-vendor marketplace for any and all photographers.
In Dec of 2017, with over 2000 photographers, and just under 24 mil in contracts, TWP sold most of it's assets, all of it's contracts, and exited the marketplace as an active agency. 2016
Another Pivot Point
In Jan of 2018, TWP pivoted once more with a focus on developing talented photographers and helping them grow their businesses.
We also licensed our TWP IP to a select few businesses for commercial purposes.
And then...SARS-COV2 & COVID-19! 2018
The future of photography is not a photographer, a camera, and the capture of an image.
It's the creation of images! 2021
What is real in this frame?
Or this one?
Or this one?
Every pixel was created with AI and a skilled engineer. Yes, the arch does exist, of course there are clouds, and fields, and northern lights, etc. But those are not captured images, they were created.
What about these?
Which one is a captured image, and which was created in two-tenths of a second by a machine?
