Stock photos versus personal

It is rarely when a client realises that stock photography - even though it's of great quality and diversity - is by no means personal or specific to the client's business environment. Therefore I was quite impressed when a current client requested I shoot photo's specific to their design. And of course it was a lot more fun for me to interact with the client and have a little more control of the outcome of the overall image impression.

I also discovered that it creates wonderful opportunities to stumble upon beautiful abstracts. This photo was of course not used, but I couldn't resist not to shoot with those alluring shadows.
