The list of clients that have bought and used his pictures, include Time Magazine, MTV, Sony, MSN.com, Microsoft, Samsung, Hewlett Packard, Tyra Banks Show, Late Night Show and many more.

Extremely dedicated when it comes to digital quality Yuri just recently became officially sponsored by Hasselbald and will by Jan, 2008 produce exclusively with the Hasselblad Digital Medium Format Camera, H3D-II-39 at 39 Mega Pixel. (awaiting the new 67MP) Only a handful of photographers world wide are sponsored by Hasselblad.

Yuri Arcurs has been profiled and interviewed for books, magazines, blogs, newspapers and lately the famous PDN magazine. He has also appeared in “photoshop creative” and “digital photographer”. He has been titled “the world’s best microstock photographer” at www.photopreneur.com and was granted “Celebrity status” at www.microstockdiaries.com.

Back in 2005 a Google of “Yuri Arcurs” gave zero search results, today, three years after you get more the 100000 hits (us google).

Besides stock photography, Yuri writes photography tutorials and guides, does a videoblog and is a public speaker. Yuri only works with projects related to charity and completely stopped doing commercial jobs. Yuri is a bachelor in psychology, a former member of the Danish “special recognisance unit” (special forces), a 100km marathon runner, a personal trainer and as a staff member said… “a irritatingly close to pathological perfectionist”.
