We are constantly asked by photographers to provide them with image ideas for shoots that will be relevant according to current market needs. Here you have one idea for which there is always a great demand.

¿Do you have kids in your family, close circle of friends or acquaintances? Yes? Then you are so lucky, not only because they sure make life more fun, but because the daily life of children, with their routines and activities can be a great source of very interesting moments to photograph, especially to make natural images that show emotions. The children don’t have to be the cutest ad-perfect-kids; you just need know how to bring out their expressivity, whether humoristic  or completely the opposite.

Take the following essential points into consideration before you get started:

  • Model releases, model releases, model releases!!!! Even if the kids are your nieces, godsons or your best friend’s first child, to make your images available for the market, and to avoid any legal complications in the future, make sure that you have the model releases signed by their legal guardian.  See the model release section of our Road Atlas  and pay special attention to the paragraph regarding minors Model Releases.
  • Be very careful of how the children are portrayed, as the most innocent of the images can be considered highly suggestive for some. And always remember this: ABSOLUTELLY NO NUDITY. Images of naked or semi naked children will not be accepted. 

So here is a list of ideas based on an ordinary day of any kid that we hope serve you as a source for inspiration.

  • Wake up is a beautiful morning! - Morning routines
  • Lunch time!- During the day 
  • Home Sweet Home -Afternoon/Evening
  • Winding Down - Night time

The gallery ADORABLE CREATURES is a sample of children images that can be found at age fotostock that we are hoping will serve you as an additional source of ideas.

A common complaint among photographers these days is that that the cost of producing images has not decreased proportionally to the prices clients are willing to pay for their images. Let’s face it! People say that times in the stock photography industry are rough, but in terms of producing new images it is required to be more imaginative and determined than ever to make good images that differentiate and make you stand out from the rest, even while using fewer resources.

This Mind, Body & Spirit gallery shows a selection of images that have visual impact, but are low in production costs.  Although some images show productions made with models, there are others that concentrate on details, concepts and minimalism, putting conceptual value in the symbolic elements within the theme giving highly aesthetic results, and that are shot without elaborate settings and expensive organization.

If you are not ready to make big investments in production but still want to be shooting images for stock photography, we encourage you to follow the route of creating images with great conceptual value. Less money in big productions requires more creativity and imagination, but if your ideas and talent are there, you will do well!

Often photographers write us and say; “I´m off to Central America/Kenya/Siberia/you name the place… What photos of [that place] do you need?”  And first we turn a little green with envy (it´s nice to see the photos, but we´d like to visit there too!).  And then we send this:

 Our "magical" travel list 

  1. Populations: Larger, modern cities and official (important) government buildings, medium and small-sized towns, churches, houses, villages, schools, universities, hospitals, health clinics
  2. Transportation:  Busses, trains, taxis, cars, highways, traffic

  3. Markets: big and small

  4. Local culture: parties, dances, processions, etc

  5. Agriculture:  crops, harvesting, workers

  6. Industry and economy (**):  of all kind including commercial harbors, railroads and airports specifically

  7. Landscapes: rivers, mountains, valleys, forests, beaches, etc with very good specific location information/names

(**) Especially important subject

This list is magical because you can use it to plan your trip (from a photographic point of view) whether you are travelling to Belize, England or Timbuktu.  However, the magic only goes so far. A hastily taken, poorly lit photo, awfully described and wrongly keyworded of any of the subjects above is not magical and will not sell. A photographer must always consider both the right subject, the right light, the correct description with as many details as possible of the place and sufficient good keywords.

And remember that even if you think there are enough images out there of a given country, city building, etc… yes, you should bother, and yes, you should go there. Your personal touch, style and point of view might make it seem like a whole new place!

Happy travels and happy shooting!
