Whether you like stock photography or not, having professional images to use for your collateral is an integral part of marketing. Budgets and time don’t always allow for photoshoots and images are a key component to conveying and communicate tone, feel and stories which often help transcend language barriers too.
Below is a list of (free) options that you can use. Each provider has their own license restrictions and rules regarding around how you can use their images. Most of these restrictions and rules are communicated on the respective site’s home page or as part of a little check box before you download.

- Life of Pix
- New Old Stock
- Styled Stock
- Kaboom Pics
The rule of thumb is simple, don’t steal or borrow other people’s work. It’s really just not nice. (And it’s a pleasure, happy image hunting).
