Family Gun Safety

I would like some stock images created that show family members being actively safe at an indoor gun range. Pictures include holding a firearm with the finger OFF the trigger. (I can't believe how many stock photos exist with people's finger on the trigger while casually holding the gun). 

Mother, father, daughter and son all wearing safety glasses and ear muffs for hearing protection. I'd actually like a downward view of the family members (the family will be looking up slightly, with arms crossed, and the dad and mom both have their firearm holstered). White background please!

 I'd also like to see more female empowering pictures where the mom is teaching her daughter how to handle a gun. A lot of stock photos play into the stereotype that women aren't confident shooters.

Hmm, you'd think that with all the gun stuff happening in the USA at the present time, that there would be better stock photo reflecting this. I mean there are a TON of photos that have a gun to someone's head, but not much in terms of family safety.

I have these two..

so close! OP has asked for white bg but also for indoor shooting range. Some clarification from OP is in order, please. Also, OP, do you have a deadline?

Stephanie - I think your two versions are close enough to not say they'd be impossible to use, but I have to jump in here so others who follow don't stray too far.

I don't have a hard deadline ... the sooner the better, tho. 


When I see this image in my mind, I imagine a father and mother in their mid to late 30s. Their children would be in their middle to late teenage years. However, this doesn't mean that neither the parents nor the children couldn't be older or younger. 


One father, one mother, one son, and one daughter.


Anglo / Hispanic / or a hybrid between the two races, e.g., hispanic husband with anglo wife.

bulletType of clothing - casual, business, formal

Business casual.


Concentrated effort in the case of parents passing down safe handling procedures.
Congratulations to the child for hitting their mark.

bulletSpecific actions

All four family members in a semi-circle or huddled together, looking upward at the camera, smiling with confidence, arms crossed, wearing safety glasses and ear muffs. Mom and dad each have their guns holstered at their side.

During instruction, children should not have their fingers on the trigger until they are ready to shoot their target.

bulletColor combinations

Dark Blue / Black pollo tops, blue jeans or kakki pants. Think of the attire of receiving gun education in a country-club, upscale atmosphere.

bulletDesired setting - white background, in a park, inside a grocery store

White background.
indoor gun range. 

bulletSize and Orientation - horizontal/vertical

Both horizontal and vertical shots are welcomed.

bulletAre you open to different media types? Photo, Vector, 3D, for example


Essentially, I'm building an indoor gun range business that caters to families and to women. Women have been an underserved customer base and tend to be stereotyped into submissive roles when it comes to gun handling and gun education. I want to reverse this by empowering women and having them instruct men, children, and other women in a clean family environment.

My apologies. When I first read it, I overlooked the white background request. I removed the images

I've only few images of guns on white background... some with human hand and some with heart shape... 

Take a look to my portfolio if you are interested.

I also have one isolated on white, plus another in my portfolio if you care to have a peek.
