These collections may be an indication, not only of the kind of images requested most frequently by ImageBrief customers, but also the kind of subject matter that is of greatest interest to all customers. When considering what to shoot, it may be useful to review some of these collections to see if it is possible to make a determination as to the kind of images in each subject category that might be of greatest interest to customers.

We have no idea how many, if any, of these images were ever purchased, or used, by a customer, but at least they were images that were supplied based on a specific customer brief.
