We need photos of IT Pros like you for our website - solarwinds.com. We're looking to feature our thwack community members in their real-life work setting—working in the server room, fixing a problem, helping a co-worker, or whatever you do to keep your shop up and running.
Ideally, the photos should show your face, be high resolution quality, and include several poses, if possible. We want to show the world what your world looks like and how you save the day.
The picture should be a wide horizontal shot with preferably a 16:9 aspect ratio and at least 1200px wide.
If you’d like, please include a short comment about yourself, what you were doing while the photo was taken, or how SolarWinds’ products help make your job better.
So, what’s in it for you?
Everyone who submits a photo in the comments below will receive:
the "SolarWinds.com Hero" badge for your profile.
If your photo is chosen to be used on SolarWinds.com, you will receive:
Your choice of a $75 ThinkGeek or Amazon gift card.
Oh - and you'll be front and center on the solarwinds.com homepage!
We’ll contact you by email to let you know if you were chosen and get the info on where to send your gift card.
Our Legal team wants us to remind you to make sure you have permission from your employer to take photos in your office and you’ll need to sign a photo release (we’ll send it to you) if we use your image. Your company name won’t be used.
Here is are a few examples. The first two feature some of our MVPs - Kevin Small and Scott Sadlocha. Please know that we will handle any retouching, effects, etc. Any changes made will be passed by you for your sign off before we add it to our website.
Please submit your photo(s) in the comments below. We appreciate your participation and look forward to adding YOU to our catalog of photos powered by the thwack community.
