If you run a blog, eCommerce website or other online brand then you should know the importance of having great photography which fits your brand and helps enhance it in the eyes of your customers. One way to do this is by the use of beautiful styled stock photography, styled stock photos are pre-made photos of scenes of different objects which usually follow a theme. This style of photography has taken off in a big way over the last few years to the point where it’s now possible to purchase a wide range of photos and even scene generators which allow you to place the objects however you like.

Some typical uses of styled stock photos are as follows:

  • Blog header or slider images
  • Featured Images for Your Blog Posts
  • Facebook Cover Photos
  • Instagram Posts
  • Images for Pinterest
  • Use in Brochures
  • eBook covers

A lot of these photos will come in Photoshop PSD format with things called “smart layers” which allow you to add your own images directory into the photo, for example if the scene contains a picture frame you could add your own artwork, they are also used for product mockups so you could display your own work in a beautiful setting surrounded by appropriate props and imagery. You can also use them within Lightroom to edit the look of them or use Lightroom Presets to get different tones and moods.


Some great places to get styled stock photography are on Etsy and Creative Market – in this post we will be listing our recommended examples of the best places to purchase photos.
