Concept Photography


posted on 15th of february, 2013

The very best photos, including stock photos, are simple and convey a clear concept. The easier the idea of the image is to understand the more powerful it becomes. The last month or so I have tried to submit to Dreamstime photos with a clear concept. Here are a few recent images:



















My experience is that concept images sell well. Some previous concept images that have sold for me in the past include:

























The simplier and cleaner an image is, and the clearer the concept, the more likley the image will sell. Challenge yourself to capture a clear concept in your photos and your success will grow.

Dreamstime Photographer Lane Erickson,

I wanted to let you know I used your photo (Washington Monument with US Capitol) in my new children’s book ‘Look Up’ recently out on Amazon. I thank you for your contribution to the book. I purchased the royalty-free photo through a subscription with Dreamstime. I wanted to send each photographer a copy of the book displaying their work but unfortunately with 71 photos used it is financially impossible for me to do so at this time. But I do not want your work to go unrecognized so I hope the book will bring people to Dreamstime to see the wonderful photos available there.

You can see more about ‘Look Up’ on my webpage

I hope it means as much to you as it does to me seeing your photo in the book and that you or someone you know will enjoy it!
