Our Favourite Places to get Free Stock Photos

There are some seriously cheesy stock photos out there.

And you might have your own fair share on your site.  Today we’re sharing our favourite places to get free stock photos with you.  These are great quality and are useful for website redesigns and social media.

Each site has different usage rules (ie: if they need to be credited) so just check before you publish online.

Death to the Stock Photo






If you’re after images for a specific niche or a larger range of options and you don’t mind spending a little money, you can always sift through the paid options too. Here are a few:

We’re also keeping an eye on Austock Photo, a project in progress that aims to offer stylish stock photos from Australia. If you’ve spent any time looking for specifically Australian stock photos you know there’s not much around.  Making images from other countries look like Australia can be difficult.

Looking forward to their site being up.  At time of publishing this blog there’s no launch date, but worth keeping it bookmarked for future Aussie stock photo needs.

    Nice list.

    It is good to find alternatives to the often very same-same photos you see everywhere. There are a couple of models that seem to turn up in every 2nd business meeting shot!
