Shot Lists for May

[Labor Day]

 May 1st, Labor Day celebrates and commemorates the workers and their efforts to protect their rights. How can we create stock content that contributes to its spirit? Start with something simple yet important – workers doing their best in various fields. Search for the ways that could depict a variety of working environments. Systems and safety nets to protect workers’ rights can also be a great theme.

[World Bee Day]

May 20th is World Bee Day. Despite their importance to the ecosystem, concern is growing since their population has declined due to the pest ‘mite’ and rapid climate change. Produce images that could remind people to preserve bees and the ecosystem. Think of the bees buzzing around nature or taking a short nap in flowers, assorted products including honey · beeswax · royal jelly, and abstract or geometric background images that resemble beehives.

[Seafood In Season]

 Spring is fully with us, and that calls for the food ingredients that make us feel like it. Therefore, we suggest seafood in season: Pomfret · Flatfish · Sea Squirt · Kelp. Especially, jaecheop(marsh clam) was requested by the customer. Generate images made with marsh clams including soup · salad · pancake. Don’t forget to capture the ‘seob’ that can only be found on fresh marsh clams in season!

[Noodles Alternative]

General interest in high protein low carb diets is getting higher, and this leads to the growth of noodles made of buckwheat · konjac · tofu · soy milk instead of flour. These alternatives have already been selected as a trendy item by ‘Whole Foods Market’ – which helps us to understand its upcoming needs. Utilize their main ingredients to style.

[Ministry of Food and Drug Safety’s Regulation Innovation]

Last 2022, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced ‘100 Assignments for Regulation Innovation for Food and Drugs’. This project is ongoing to support the industry development and Korean citizens’ health and safety – and it includes allowing the production and import of medicine and medical supplies made with cannabis, expanding the range of recyclable material of food containers, and supporting medicine and medical supplies with AI.

Refer to the assignments mentioned earlier to design your upcoming shooting and keep track of the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety by checking up status of innovation and 50 more that are going to be announced in May.
