Hands down, the question instructors at Training Company hear most often from students is “Where can I get good stock photography?” In the past two years, a new trend in the design community has been developing where many sites offer FREE, high-quality, stock photos. The only issue is the time is takes to separate the good from the bad.
Top 8 Stock Photo Sites for Graphic Designers
Below is a short list of good stock photo websites. The photos below are just samples of photos you can find in these websites.
There are some really great, unique images at ISO Republic. The photos on the site are all free to use on personal and commercial projects.
Life of Pix is a high-quality collection of stock photos from advertising agency, Leeroy. Nice work, Leeroy.
Exactly what it sounds like, this is a collection of free stock images of modern startup work environments.
More traditional looking stock photography but, hey, sometimes that’s exactly what you need, right? Note: files are big and the site is slow.
Nice images from around the world. Ten new images featuring great landscapes and travel photography are added every ten days.
Great photos!! A mix of traditional and really nice concept photos with a new photo added every day. For use on personal and commercial projects.
High quality photography from designer Daniel Nanescu. Definitely worth a look.
