Stock photos are the existing images (or illustrations) that you can license (pay a fee to the author that’s managing them so you can later use them in a different way). But, there’s something about them that makes them instantly recognizable! Whether it is their weird posey cheesiness, you will know that it’s a stock photo the moment you see it!
The photographers’ and actors’ job is actually difficult, because they try to represent so many different concepts, topics and ideas into single photographs, and the ways in which they fail is actually hilarious.
There’s a hashtag named #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob that has been going around and it’s a perfect collection of stock photographers’ failures! These photos are actually hilarious, so make sure to scroll down and check them out, and vote for your favourite in the comments!
