Stock Photographers: What Should You Be Photographing?
** Disclaimer: Before I begin, I need to make it clear that none of the stunning images contained in this post were taken by me! **
I read somewhere this week that cassette tapes are going to be making a comeback in 2016. This got me to thinking about the sort of images that are likely to be in demand this year too.
Technology is always in high demand, and so it is logical that photos, vectors and illustrations of technology should also be. Even though I know this, and I like to think I'm not totally stupid, I don't know why I haven't capitalized on this knowledge and focused my shoots on tech, both new and old.
I started to search the @Dreamstime stock library to see what sort of images sell well and are in high demand. The results were staggering! There are some seriously talented artists out there that at the moment I know I can't compete with. To pay homage to their work, and maybe even help boost their sales, I have started to compile a new collection which I hope you will find as mind-blowingly brilliant as I do.
Hit the link. Be inspired. Get creative. And maybe, just maybe, you can boost your sales by including some technology images into your portfolio. Maybe I will be smart enough to follow my own advice...well, that's another blog post!
