    I have always been frustrated with stock photography. The biggest problem I have with it is trying to find relevant imagery for the site that I am building. It would be easier to go and snap the images yourself.

    Thanks Rico for the comment. Yes, this is an issue facing all web designers. We have to use Stock photos but so many issues like trying to find the right image, then when you do, its been used a million times. If web designers made photography a focus, make sure to apply these charges in your overall price of the website, then spend time taking photos instead of using stock, the website project would I’m sure come out much better.
