When you look at a stock photo, you know instantly that it’s a stock photo. If it’s not the fake smiles, it’s the weird tackiness that almost never occurs in real life. Granted, more often than not it is difficult to encapsulate a topic, job, idea or scenario into one photo, and obviously it is atrociously gold when it all fails. The hashtag #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob is now viral thanks to a bunch of scientists, and we cannot help but to get on board. It’s just hilarious!
I don’t know what people are going on about with #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob

As an environmental engineer I always wander in the woods, with a helmet(a leaf or a bird dropping may fall) but with a suit (i am an engineer after all) and look worried around. #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob pic.twitter.com/jCvrTAzP9B

I couldn’t find any #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob for my current role, but I used to be a software engineer, and this is exactly how I used to find bugs: if you listened carefully you could hear them coming up through the keyboard pic.twitter.com/yEMHJQQGoS

This stock image of a scientist is PRICELESS. I too often find myself inspecting each nugget of dry ice one by one. Can never be too careful 🤣 pic.twitter.com/f1HrDgobuK

Back in the 90’s, I totally compromised my morals and education (two college degrees), by Domme-ing my way to the top. pic.twitter.com/SH4eNW5Mdt

You never know whether your expensive computers and screens are worth the money and actually show the pictures you took. Better be safe then sorry and compare each photo with the ones on your camera.#BadStockPhotosOfMyJob pic.twitter.com/kVwmllF7Hp
