Artists ask us this question a lot, but here's the secret: there isn't really a "Stocksy look." We encourage our members to experiment and be creative while keeping in mind the ultimate goal of beautiful, timeless photos and videos.
In your application, we want to see your style.
Here are some tips:
- Show us a consistent style with purpose.
- Imagine clients licensing your content to fill gaps in their projects and stories – they'll need visuals that flow well together. Be very selective when adding trendy or extreme effects and color toning.
- We generally prefer to see the white balance and skin tones neutral/natural unless unusual colors elevate an image as a deliberate creative choice.
- Don't add digital grain. We're pretty picky about this.
