Lessons from stock photography: The office



For my whole life, I always thought work was something like the image below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You sit there, usually at a computer, and just work. Sure you’ll probably chat with the co-workers around you, you’ll step out for lunch and a fresh breeze – but for the most part, you’ll spend the day at your desk just working. Predictable kinda stuff.

I guess however, stock photographers see the office as a very different space, with MUCH different people walking around it.

It seems that stock photographers believe that at some point in your day, there is definitely a possibility of being tied up with some loose rope (without you being completely unaware of course).

In this office, people express with their hands and not with their face. Also, you can get gum in your hair by just sitting at a computer.

 

 

Crazy man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stock photographers believe that the criminally insane will make great additions to any office staff.

Can’t tell if this is the result of office shenanigans or just a really inept employee.

 

 

Stock rising

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to stock photographers, this is the customary response to ‘a good day at the office’.

 

 

Red tape

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red tape ALWAYS takes on a literal context…either that or bondage is condoned as a professional practice.

 

 

Man drowning

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, we DO need to illustrate the dangers of drowning in an office!

 

 

Happy businessman

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The office is a great way to reunite with your douchebag frat brothers from college!

 

 

Boss green screen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the perks to being a boss is the chance to work in front of a green screen – Now you can work ANYWHERE!

 

 

Computer woman

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When having computer issues, it is appropriate to take it apart and use it as a phone…

 

 

Computer monster

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…Or take it apart and pretend that you’re the computer monster.

 

 

Dumb

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there’s one thing stock photographers and I agree on, it’s that the office is a strictly professional environment.

 

 

Scared man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks freaked out office dood, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
