Sometimes I wonder about stock photography and how it can, and is, used in today’s design/art world. Some people swear by it, others swear off it. It’s understandable when designers choose to use stock. It all usually boils down to time and money. Do they have the time to take their own or the money to hire their own photographer? Other times it’s a mixture of stock and new photographs used in design. Personally, I think that there is a time and place for everything. including stock photos. But if you look hard enough you’ll find gems, gorgeous photographs that just make your project pop!
