Modstock is a new stock photography database, which offers images of the modern digital lifestyle.

For most digital publishers, finding the right stock image that not only fits the brand, but also conveys the right message, can be a huge hurdle. Though there are platforms that sell only high quality images, many of them still fall short when it comes to offering up-to-date and relevant photos that truly represent the modern life of millennials, leaving publishers to create their own photoshoots, which can be costly and inefficient.
A new platform, Modstock, wants to change this. The freshly launched website hosts high quality stock photographs of how millennials really live. Images are inspired by real-life happenings, such as one titled “Man Looks For Love On Tinder From His Toilet Seat.” The images are high in definition (2940 x 1960 pixels), and users can search using trending keywords such as social, personal record, and more.
The business was birthed out of a recognition that current stock photography does not accurately represent modern living. Are there other niche image databases that could take advantage of the ever-growing industry of digital content?
