In many cases my clients don’t have the budget to hire a photographer to shoot their own website images so affordable stock imagery is a great fallback option when you need high resolution images for impact on your website.
Here are a few of my favorite free (and affordable) resources for stock images:
Unsplash (recently purchased by Getty images)
Death to Stock – This site has a paid subscription model but if you scroll down to the bottom of the homepage, there is a place to sign up for occasional free photo packs. I have accumulated several of these photo packs over the years and they have come in handy when I am looking for less “posed” photos.
Eye for Ebony has some great affordable options if you are looking for beautiful stock images featuring people of color. Most of their themed packs are $15/each for 25 high quality images.
Do you have a favorite stock image website I haven’t mentioned? Feel free to share it with me.
