Australian Rules football is a game unique to Australia, so it’s important to include photos like these in the Austockphoto stock photography library. However branding has to be removed before the photos can be used for stock images, which takes considerable time in Photoshop. In this case the colour of the football jumpers/jerseys/guernseys (terminology depends on which part of Australia you live in apparently) also was very recognisable. I’m glad that I didn’t have to do all of that editing myself! Thank goodness for virtual assistants, and the ability to send images anywhere in the world via the internet… If you find the images on the Austockphoto stock photography library or on the Adobe Stock premium Australian gallery you will see that the branding and logos are gone, and colour of the uniforms has been shifted to appear as a more maroon colour.
Girls playing footy! A recent inspiring photoshoot was with some girls from the Eaton Boomers women’s football team. Women’s football has become immensely popular, so I figured that there needs to be some stock photos of the sport in the Austockphoto stock photography library. Three of the girls from the team showed up early before training, and showed me how it is done!
The Austockphoto stock photo library, launched in 2016, is a resource which licenses exclusively Australian photos to clients worldwide.
Australian businesses are loving having Australian images to illustrate their stories online, to use for printed brochures or for advertisements. Government agencies and not-for profits are also accessing the stock photo library for getting their messages out to the community.
I am a foundation contributor to Austockphoto, and I enjoy creating images which portray Australian agriculture and the country lifestyle in rural and regional Australia.
Most of the stock photos sold by Austockphoto feature people, so I am always looking for people who are happy to have their photos taken to upload to the stock photography library. Because of my rural location and the farm photography work that I do I like to add photos of Australian Country life too. I aim to capture authentic Australian life, so I don’t seek out professional models or extraordinarily good-looking people. My family make good models!
Some of my most popular images in the Austockphoto library are of very ordinary, everyday subjects. A mum and her kids at home, a couple of blokes enjoying a drink, a kid with his footy, teenage girls hanging out.
