Your everyday search terms remixed by Mike Fouque

Mike Fouque is one of our local contributors – shooting, living and working in Marseille. He uses his hometown for all his compositions, because sometimes the most beautiful pictures wait right in front of you. Moreover, he is one of three photographers Adobe Stock challenged to rethink stock imagery. Here’s what he came up with.

A local lens.

Mike’s interest in local content might explain the three words he chose to take to the next level as part of the Adobe Stock challenge: business, summer, and travel. “Through my image, I wanted to show that a businessman can work from anywhere in the world, while enjoying his life,” he explains, “and I think my final picture reflects this.”

As with all of his local photo shoots, he placed great importance on a number of key factors. “For me the most important thing is that my pictures reflect authenticity, that they are as natural as possible.” Making the most of Marseille’s (normally) great weather, he aims to avoid the use of artificial light in his work. A similar natural approach is applied to models, avoiding too much makeup or styling. “I am looking for spontaneity,” he says, “I think this is what customers are looking for today too.”

So why not stand out from the crowd and set your work apart with local content.

Your everyday search terms revisited by Anna Cor

Anna Cor is a lifestyle photographer based in Berlin and a contributor for the Adobe Stock Premium Collection. She is also one of the local artists that recently took part in an exciting challenge: Adobe Stock asked select photographers to choose three of the most-searched keywords on our database and re-interprete them in an original shooting.

Anna is used to working with commonly searched words and focusing on everyday life. “I find inspiration everywhere.” she explains, “I love to look for beautiful moments in the world around me and capture them with my camera.”

For the Adobe Stock challenge, she chose the words cat, flowers, and coffee, as they conjured up the most interesting images in her mind. Anna took the photos in her studio, which also happens to be her apartment. She often uses the space as a backdrop for her creative and stylish interpretations of different themes. “In the future, I believe we will see a broader range of images, which are more artistic, moving away from the normal portrayal of everyday life towards more complex compositions,” she says.

The premium result.

These complex compositions to which Anna refers are exactly what Adobe Stock’s Premium Collection has to offer. Created by some of the world’s leading photographers and agencies, the collection provides content that is visually striking and emotionally impactful, with a strong narrative element. At present, there are around 100,000 hand-selected images in the collection – each one selected by a team of expert curators to ensure their commercial, technical, and artistic quality.

Anna’s final composition for the challenge perfectly depicts the kind of photos you can find in the Premium Collection. The three keywords she chose are combined in an elegant and seamless arrangement – with an understated artistic flair.
