Case in point: when stock photo photographers interpret what they think people’s jobs involve.

Via a viral Twitter hashtag, #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob, users shared stock photo photographers’ interpretations of their own professions. Apparently, a photographer’s perception can be a little off sometimes…if not all the time.

Has anyone ever completely misunderstood what you did for a living?
