Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


Stock posers

I am getting very frustrated at the absolutely disproportionate representation of females over males in low-cost stock photography libraries. Especially in the non-American ones, which, really, is the sensible way to go on account of so much American stock being so ridiculously stereotypical and generally clinical. That’s why so many designers hate Corbis — it’s nothing to do with the cost, just the crappy content. Admittedly you don’t always need people-stock, but even so… when you do…

If you’re a girl and know any professional photographers, get your face out of the picture or at the very least, grab a guy and pretend to start talking to him. Okay?

(Yes, tongue in cheek.)
