Ok folks, this is going to be a rather vauge question, so mayby one of you can help me out.

I am looking for a pay per graphic site (like www.corbis.com) that specalises in a paticular type of web graphic that is popular on some of the larger sites these days.

the graphic is of people on a all white background. the shot of the people is done slightly overhead, so in the web graphic it appears they are looking slightly up, and their heads and shoulders are larger then their feet. The people are usually models dressed like businessmen, busy students, and so on.

does this make sense? I am trying to find a site that as an example of what i want, but i cannot find any off hand.

thanks.

Lots of the royalty free photo web sites have photos like what you are describing. It's just a matter of finding them. Unfortunately, most of the sites don't make it easy for you.

Customer service? What's that?

Try this:

On eyewire.com:

[eyewire.com ]

You can also try www.comstock.com. I've purchased from them in the past. Their selection isn't as broad, but the prices tend to be more reasonable.

when, exactly, did it become hip to portray techno-people as wearing black turtleneck sweaters? You seem to see these pics all over nowadays.

do any of YOU wear black turtleneck sweaters? <G>

I owned one in college... Eventually it got holes in it. But I wasn't a techno-person back then.

Now I have a grey turtleneck. :)

However, my head has never been larger than my torso, nor have I ever met anyone who's was... so THAT is definitely a bit of artistic license by the folks over at eyewire.

I would also recommend ArtToday.com, [arttoday.com] which has photos, web art, fonts, sounds, and much more. You don't pay per item, you pay for a time period and a membership level, and you're allowed all the downloads you want/need. We've used our account for photos like the one you were looking for, as well as for fonts, other images, etc.

Not affiliated with them at all, just a satisfied customer.

weblamer-

You might tell your boss that if it's available as stock art en masse it probably isn't trendy any more. Maybe to him it's trendy, but to trendy people it's passe. Therefore, his target audience is probably not trendy?

Be a rebel. How about overweight middle aged men in bathing trunks with black dress socks and sandals? You know: talking on the phone, in a business meeting, at the conference table, looking puzzled, looking vogue, looking vague, looking surprised, in deep thought, typing at their keyboard. Doing real important stuff.

In the alternative, probably photodisc is your best bet.
