As a photographer, I provide a finished product – a photograph (or series of photographs). I do not however, especially with stock photography, often see the finished product that the client is producing. What a treat it is when a client sends me a finished copy of their ad, brochure or website using my photographs. I really wish that stock photography clients would do the same. These anonymous buyers know who the photographer is, and there is a link to the photographer’s site and e-mail on the stock photo provider’s page. I wold love to see what they are doing with my photographs.
Here is a finished product from one of my clients. I shot all of the beauty shots and at least half of the product shots. http://www.astorline.com/Astor2011/index.html.
