One of our buyers notified us they would need photos of military women.
Of course, they could search the database, but here's the catch: there are way too many sexy military women online, which they don't need, and they're not even that popular actually.
So, we'd love to see more real military women submitted rather than pretty sexy models playing the soldier's role.
Actually, this goes for all your submissions: try to picture more real people in real situations rather than shooting some pretty models doing nothing or just looking sexy. Real sells better than fake. Sex doesn't sell very well in stock photography.
If you have photos in your archive portraying women who look like real military soldiers, or planning a shoot, please take into consideration our advice.
As an inspiration, check out some photos from our Editorial section. As you can see, the real military women don't wear only a bra, their uniform doesn't consist in bikinis or a sweaty shirt, and their make-up is rather light.
I think that when you make an open call for military women you might also want to give some specifics. Not onlu is the branch of the military you are seeking relevant, but I would think that the country would be extremely important.
I have photos of Swedish Guards and US Coast Guard women that I will upload (as editorial) but would like to know if this is a general ongoing request or if it's too late now for the request. I saw this as a post from December 2013 - but in looking further realize it goes back nearly a year. If it's the kind of search that comes up regularly that would be great.
