Thanks to a recent trend on Twitter, people are publishing bad stock photos of their jobs. They represent them in a completely inaccurate and unprofessional way, often even inappropriate – but every time it’s completely hilarious. It started with photos of scientists and doctors, but the people of other professions got involved as well, and it’s hysterical.

The hashtag under which all these ridiculous photos are united is #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob. I have chosen some of my personal favorites, and trust me, the competition was strong!

There are also some bad stock photos of photographers:

I used to be a teacher, although I wouldn’t say any of my students loved me this much…

Anika Malone has a very good point regarding these photos. She writes that she would love to recreate all of them to make them look more realistic, but she lives “in a society that shows 9 mos. pregnant bellies on stories about abortion.” This pretty much sums it up.

Some Twitter users were bothered by this hashtag, considering that stock photographers put a lot of time, money and effort into making these photos, and websites like Shutterstock take a cut from every sale. It might seem like the trend on Twitter is making fun of stock photographers, but I don’t see it that way. I think it’s not meant to undermine anyone; it’s there just for fun. And I found it fun indeed.
