Is there any definition or standard what is stock material? It cannot be only fake studio shots of business situations ;-)

To me the definition would be more about images being created without a customer in mind, as opposite of commissioned work.  Instead of having someone ask you to photograph a smiling business woman for his client, you photograph a smiling business woman and save it (stock it) somewhere in case someone may be interested sometime.

But of course my definition doesn't fit the "this is not stock-oriented material" rejection.  :D

Seriously though - I still find it hard to believe the apparently endless, limitless demand for fake-y-looking shots of young models dressed up as "business" people.    

Where does all this stuff end up?

I think I sold every "not stock" image I submitted...of course on sites that don't use this type of rejection very often.

Stock photography must serve a purpose and display a concept, have good technical execution, and have a marketable application.  For me, if I can picture it on a billboard next the freeway... it's a go!
