18 Hilarious And Bizarre Stock Photos



Stock photography is a booming business. Every day, hundreds of thousands of articles are published online, and many of them need high-quality images to illustrate their subject. Advertisers likewise employ stock imagery when time or budget constraints don’t allow them to hire a photographer. It’s no surprise, then, that the images out there are quite diverse.

Sometimes, though, photographers go a little overboard imagining what their clients might need. It’s certainly a testament to their creativity, or perhaps their boredom, that they come up with such unusual scenarios as a nun exploring the joys of the ocean, a businessman getting some work done on a surfboard, or a man dressed as a rabbit weighing heads of lettuce. Read on for the most hilariously bizarre stock photos we’ve come across on the web.
