Multimedia, What's That?
Whether you're a freelancer, or well embedded in a larger design/development studio, there's a pretty good chance you're at least capable of wearing multiple job-hats, if you have to. Most folks have at more than one point in their career. Freelancers and self-employers must be masters of this art to be successful. Even the best of us, though, would be hard pressed to master EVERY skill necessary, much less have the time to actually complete every job task in a timely manner. While some lucky web-izens are also accomplished photographers, many are not. To that end, it's always important to have resources of photography available. Top-class jobs will necessitate custom work, but for the vast majority of jobs, good ol' stock photography will do. To that end, have a look at some awesome and reliable resources for goodies of the visual and stocky variety!
