Stock Photobomber Photoshops himself into awkward stock photos, makes them awesome
We’ve all seen terrible stock photos at one point or another, whether while hunting for them or while reading a blog/paper/you name it. After all, most of them are quite awkward and finding bizarre - or downright freakin’ weird - stock images isn't exactly a hard task. 

That’s where the brilliant Stock Photobomber comes in. After 20 years spent working as an art director in advertising and having to endure waaaaaay too many stock photo fails, the Stock Photobomber decided to take matters into his own hands, spicing up even the dullest and strangest of pics with his awesome self. 

This idea is so fantastic, we’re sad we didn’t think of it first and are also totally jealous of his coolness and mad Photoshop skillz. It's about time someone spiced up all those questionable stock images! Can we be friends, pleeeeaaaase?

Here's how the SP describes his journey to greatness: "I’ve spent many a day sifting through stock photography. If I had to guess, in my 20-year career I probably viewed some 845,742,923,012 images, but that may just be how it felt. I find that when I look at stock photos, I experience the same uncomfortable feeling I have when my bank teller asks me with a forced smile, how my morning is going." 

"Armed with Photoshop 6.0 and my own raw emotion, I’m going to thrust stock photography into the real world the only way I know how: I’m going to photobomb the s*** out of it.’ 

Success? We sure think so!
