Do you have website and social media photo envy? Always wondering where everyone gets those gorgeous styled stock from? You know the ones that look feminine, soft, delicate and elegant?
You could literally spend hours of your valuable time searching for them, time that you could be spending in your business, right?
I, myself, do spend quite a bit of money every month on stock photos. I do also use the free sites too though. I spend hours searching for “just the right image” for moodboards/brand boards for each and every project. But those are paid for a lot of the time.
Styled stock photography has exploded recently and it’s no wonder as most of them are drool worthy. Not only that, they literally save you heaps of time as they have the perfect amount of space left for overlaying your text, they look effortless, they look visually stunning and if you find just the right styled photos for your brand then you can use these for all your on and offline branding and marketing.
