What is Stock Photography? Is it content with people acting out everyday tasks or a side of photography that can also be classified as cringe or maybe you think of references you google when you want an example of an image but they always come with these giant watermarks?
Everyone’s perspective is different but there is no doubt that anyone can say that they have not seen it because stock photography is used everywhere. Every business or organization usually has them plastered all over their advertisements, shops, or online presence meaning this industry is definitely bigger than you can imagine and the demand is ongoing. The photos or videos that you see of people at the bank getting a mortgage or loan, patients talking to doctors on leaflets, even the kids in school books and how can we forget that one picture of a person who is laughing so much while eating a salad. Yep, that’s stock photography.
