To quote a photographer in age fotostock's photographers' chatroom:

"To produce great images, money isn’t the main necessity. It´s imagination, conceptualization and being able to use available resources that are the most important things"

Words from the wise - it’s true! We’re finding that photographers don’t need to break open their piggy banks for a photo shoot with top models in the Caribbean in order to make images that sell. They needn’t even leave their neighborhood. With a general shift in image trends, the world of design and publicity is tending towards images that mix creative flair with real life moments, images that give us a unique way of seeing the most ordinary things.

Photographers, look around you - there’s a high chance that your best photos can be taken in exact spot in which you’re standing. Attention to detail, a creative angle, willing friends that will sign a model release (hey, this is one of the only times it’s suitable to say “shoot your children”), people going about their daily lives, in natural locations – with a little imagination all of these make excellent ingredients for images that can quite simply knock your socks off. Remember, gold is not the only thing that glitters…!

It’s less than a week before the sports event of the year starts! We won’t be in London covering the action but we’ve already begun warming up, doing all the stretching exercises required to prevent injury while watching the competition from the comfort of our sofas.

Sports Images are always in demand, not only to illustrate pieces related to one sport or the other, but also to illustrate all the concepts and values that sports encapsulate. Sports images are visual resources which communicate an endless list of positive and popular concepts related to topics such as motivation, achievement, action, energy, contentment, leisure, success, team work, risk (in adventure sports) or healthy and active lifestyles.

Here is the latest gallery of images that we’ve sent to our clients, containing sports images that can be found at age fotostock. Check it out, enjoy it - we hope it gets you inspired and motivated to go out and shoot some great images! And remember, there are images everywhere…photographers’ eyes only need to discover them!

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!
