The Truth Behind Stock Photography… according to DRTV (VIDEO)

 

Searching for corporate stock photography can be like finding a needle in a haystack when you are trying to find perfect images to make your site look professional. Check out our business image selection here.

But sometimes when you get lost in the finals pages of your image search you sometimes run across some ridiculous images that makes you scratch your head and wonder what the photographer was thinking…

Stock Photos IRL (in real life) Video


Regardless of what stock photography site you use, sometimes have images that are cringeworthy. You know, everything from the guy with holding two phones up to each ear being tangled by cords or two men in suits staring at a blank computer screen typing away, some stock photos take on a life of their own. I mean, why wouldn’t you have a corporate executive in a three-piece suit crouching down on starting blocks getting ready to race?

Luckily for us, we have the YouTube photography channel DigitalRevTV, which is essentially “Top Gear” of photography. They recently posted a video, “Stock Photos IRL (in real life)” where host Lok Cheung and some actors parody what is actually going on when these stock photos are being shot. If you’re unfamiliar with DRTV, their videos are often informative and well-balanced camera reviews, but they also create funny content that pokes fun at photographers and photography.

After watching the funny DRTV-Video I decided to take a look into our own stock photo site to find great alternatives for the DRTV examples. Below are my picks for great alternative stock images to the ones from DRTV:
