What to Shoot: January 2018


There has never been a better time for creating content in any medium. The demand for more fresh content reflects the enormous number of search requests we received in 2017, and we only expect that number to increase exponentially in 2018. With that said, we’ve identified some of the current and upcoming trends in our marketplace that will help ensure your collection is as diverse and strong as it can be.

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
