Christmas in June
In order to maximize your likelihood of success with stock photography, it is necessary to think like a marketer in terms of content and timing – months, even seasons in advance of when the products may actually be sold.
In between Friday and Sunday client sessions for my new local photography business, Foto Bespoke, I had Saturday completely free and staged my living room as though we would soon be celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah. I photographed my daughter in many different lighting, color, wardrobe, and winter holiday scenarios in order to create a multitude of aesthetics that could appeal to advertisers and magazines that might be starting to think about their winter advertising.
Here are a couple of the images I created, which are now available at Gallery Stock for commercial and editorial licensing. As there is considerable diversity among the 5 setups that I did, please contact me at email@example.com if you would like to explore more photos from my 2017 holiday portfolio. This series is comprised of about 75 images. If you would like to license any of the images below, please contact Gallery Stock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
