Smiling Nitwits are my niche specialty in the Stock Photography World. I handle costuming, location scouting, scenario development and talent-prodding. I photograph them using all digital equipment that requires little touch-up after the fact. These photos are used on everything from Banking websites to Sweatshirts for the infirm. My bestsellers are photos of happy-go-lucky dimwits enjoying beverages with straws. Second to those are brainless shits grilling meats in backyards. Surprisingly, shirtless men covered in welts surrounded by dogs come in third. I don't question any of it. Stock Photography creation is an amoral pursuit. You do it and it is done. Your work may be used to promote a charity or a credit scam. It is not your concern or worry. Next week I take the smiling nitwits to a water park. And after that I'll take a few thousand photos of morons eating pork rinds at church fairs. Victimless Paparazzi.
