Stock photography represents a popular form of photography sale, in which photographers place their work to mediary websites such as iStock, Shutterstock, Adobe stock, etc. Various companies, magazines and marketing agencies can purchase photographs for their own marketing purposes. Stock photography is based on model photography of most common everyday situations, such as family gatherings, work days, leisure and work trips, etc.
What makes stock photography special is that, besides the professional models, people whose primary calling is not modelling are used as models. Not only does that make them unique and natural, but they represent the most accurate everyday life through the art of photography.
