HOW TO USE
STOCK PHOTOS & STILL
LOOK COOL
INSIGHTS BY CHRIS ‘KUBBY’ KUBBERNUS
Let’s face it
Most stock photos suck!
But why
do they suck?
My colleagues
and I always huddle
around a laptop
and high five. Don’t you?
Crap! We’re missing
an Indian or a Latino.
Keep searching.
What does this say?
We’re all busy?
And blurry.
And faceless.
Too Many Really
Good Looking People
I’m the real
Dr. McDreamy
It’s okay. I get it.
We all need to sometimes
use stock photos.
We don’t always have the budgets,
(or the time) to get custom photos.
So what
can I do?
Tip #1
Who Do You Trust?
Go For Ugly Real
Tip #2
Tip #3
Self expression is cool
Self expression is cool
Leaves room for copy
Self expression is cool
Leaves room for copy
More real
Tip #4 (the last)
