It’s been a while since I posted, let’s begin with a bang. I’ve talked about Stock photography in past and even given a couple of presentations about what sells and what does not.

The short answer is people and lifestyle, that maybe casual or business related. All those ads you see across every city in the world are stock images. No doubt many are also custom shot adverts, but the majority are still stock photos.

Here is one of those stock photo shoots of a 2 year old toddler, on white background, different emotions and scenarios. The key to a good stock shot is to portray a clear message, sprinkled with some emotions.

The images are now available for sale on iStockPhoto. Other portfolios GettyImages 1 and GettyImages 2

And my friends, that is when you make money from your sale of images. Who know’s maybe someone will want exclusive rights of your images and you’ll be taking holidays all year round.
