Have you ever looked at one of those boring stock photos and thought to yourself that 'something' was missing, something that would definitely add to the mood and enhance the overall atmosphere of the event?
Stock photos are always in need of livening up a little bit—and one man who's taken on the job of doing just that is The Stock Photobomber Matt Vescovo, a 45-year-old art director from Los Angeles.
Vescovo has been inserting himself into the over-smiley mundanity of stock photos to inject some reality into them. And that reality involves plenty of humor and wit.
You can't just add yourself to just any stock photo though, that's too easy. no, you need to target just the ones that are seriously over-posed and extremely dull. That's where talent and skill come into play.
"Armed with Photoshop 6.0 and my own raw emotion," Vescovo says on his Facebook page. "I’m going to thrust stock photography into the real world the only way I know how... I’m going to photobomb the shit out of it."
Somebody has to. Take a look at the before and after photos below.
