October 10, 2008, Newsletter Issue #85: Sports Stock Photography Can Motivate an Audience

Tip of the Week

Once you begin searching for stock photography, you'll be amazed at the vast array of choices, especially people pictures. So, you might narrow your search by choosing a certain type of image. Because our culture is so sports-oriented, these types of stock photos can be used when you want to motivate an audience. There's nothing like a close-up of a soccer player scoring a goal to convey strength, grit and will. Or, what about a golf shot featuring a close up of a shot preparation? This type of photo can communicate focus and quiet determination.

When you search for sports stock photos, you may find some shots of famous people. These shots, from reputable stock sites, can be used according to the terms in which they are sold. But, you should always be extra careful when using people pictures of celebrities because they pay a great deal of attention to how they are conveyed in print and photos.

Additionally, when buying a stock photo of a person, check into whether or not a model release was signed. This can further protect you against any unlawful use of people pictures.
