Ten Truly Terrible Stock Photos

badfront.jpg

There are hundreds of decent stock photos out there.
And thousands of truly bad ones.

Here's ten that rise to the top of the toilet.


It may be hard to believe but a photographer and/or client went through a lot of effort and planning to shoot these horrible photos.

(Note: This list in any real Top 10 order. Bad photos like to stick together.)


10. "Quick everyone make the dumbest face you can think of....yeah, that's it."

9. "Ethel, Hank. I want you to stretch, reach and smile."

8. "Kate, you've got a headache. Arnie, you don't speak English."

7. ...smiling, active seniors holding hands...

6. New Age M.B.A. Guru?

5. "Who's up for an orgy?"

4. Did Brad just poop his pants?

3. A black cat!?!?!?!

duh, there's no "client" per se. the whole point of stock photography is that you take a bunch of random shit and then hope that someone else will buy it on the cheap later on. so yeah, most of it is rubbish. it's what you buy if you can't afford to commission a real photographer to create something to your specifications.

Yes, there can be a "client" per se. For instance, some stock photo companies have staff photographers who shoot situations to add to the companies photo library.
