An amusing collection of awkwardly-posing models pretending to be scientists, designers, engineers and teachers has been assembled on social media under the hashtag #badstockphotosofmyjob.
The hashtag has been originally started by scientists but has been taken on by many others eager to point out the oddity of the stock photos. Commentators online have addressed this woeful misrepresentation of different professions with ironic captions.
