Contributor Tips

What to Shoot: August 2017


In an effort to help you achieve even more success, we’re always working hard to identify some of the buyer trends in our marketplace. Each month, we put together a series of custom shoot briefs focusing on the hottest topics, and some of the trends we’ve identified this month include Urban Aerials, 360 VR, and Healthy Lifestyles.

Check out the links below for each of the individual shoot briefs. Once you’ve completed the brief, a unique code needs to be applied to each clip – just add the code (provided at the top of each brief) to your keyword tags when you upload. That way, we’ll know which brief you’ve been focusing on.

If you have any questions or comments about any of these shoot briefs, please email Pond5’s Director of Artist Development and Experience, Robert Pascale, at
