What to Shoot: October 2017


The kids are back to school, athletes are training for the Winter Olympics, and we have a slew of upcoming holidays on the horizon to look forward to. With all that in mind, we assembled a few briefs that take these themes into account. As a reminder to our seasoned Pond5 artists, and for all new contributors to the Pond5 marketplace, each month we put together this series of custom shoot briefs focusing on the hottest topics and biggest evergreen subjects.

Check out the links below for each of this month’s individual shoot briefs. Once you’ve completed one of them, 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
