Gregg Stallings and Lynn Martin have joined Aurora Photos, Stallings as director of sales and Martin as director of royalty free. Both Stallings and Martin come to Aurora with extensive industry experience.
Stallings worked previously for The Image Bank and then moved to Corbis, where he was director of the Americas, overseeing the sales, research and customer-service divisions. After Corbis, Stallings founded the WireImage Creative collection for MediaVast, which was recently sold to Getty Images.
Martin will oversee a newly formed royalty-free production division and begin by creating an outdoor adventure and lifestyle collection. Martin was with The Image Bank from 1982-2000 and remained through their integration into Getty Images. From there, she moved to Picture Arts and then to Jupiterimages as vice president of product strategy after they acquired Picture Arts.
For more than a decade, Aurora has been recognized as having a strong editorial collection from 250 elite photographers. Recently, it has begun to also focus on the commercial side of the business. At present, Aurora possesses an equally solid offering of contemporary lifestyle and outdoor adventure photography.
