So what is stock photography? According to wikipedia it is “the supply of photographs licensed for specific uses. It is used to fulfill the needs of creative assignments instead of hiring a photographer.” Basically it means photos which are available for use of marketers and advertisers.
Every time you read a magazine, a blog post or whenever you look at a newspapers, billboard, textbooks, book covers, business catalogs, direct mail, or a business profile you are probably looking at stock photography.In today’s modern world, probably 99.9% of stock photography are sold online. Very so often these photos involve people or models posing with overly excited expressions, trying to portray the most enthusiastic positive manner a person can possible express. As its not about creating beautiful artistic photos however it is about creating bold concepts which would potentially be sold to clients.
