This Post Was Written High Atop A Mighty Boulder

For a little Friday fun, here’s a great bit of funny from Forty Media: “Top Ten Stock Photography Cliches.” In this writer’s past, years and years ago, he used to work as an assistant at a modeling agency and would often get calls for booking stock work. Sometimes you’d occasionally get the sheets back from the shoot and more often than not they’d be this kind of material. Just awful, awful. And your first thought is “Who uses this stuff?” But then you’re reminded every time you look toward the back of magazines, particularly with trades and, for some reason, technology magazines. It’s just really odd to figure out the minds of people, probably clients for the most part, who see this stuff and say, “Yes, what I need is a lot of business people jumping in the air! That’ll get my message across!”
