The Story Behind the Stock

We sometimes have new clients say, “We need a great shot, but we don’t want it to look like stock.”

We know what you mean. Too often, stock photography — particularly in agriculture — is either too “clinical” to be appealing, or too glamorously out-of-touch to be believed. We founded AgriLife Studios, and launched our stock image and video business [ www.agrilifestudiosstock.com ], to meet a need for images that accurately represent life and reality of agriculture.

Admittedly, our stuff is sometimes a little too gritty for the uninitiated. But sometimes it’s a little artsy. No matter the content or style, our images are always authentic — showing the real life, people and work of agriculture. It’s a reflection of who we are, where we come from, and what we value.

We made this short video to introduce ourselves to new clients — to tell the story behind the stock. What do you think makes a great stock image? We’d love to hear your take on it.
