Finding stock photos, that are free can be a hard and tedious task! Especially ones that are high quality. Working in the web industry, we are always looking for images for blogs and clients’ websites. There have been hours spent sifting through not so good stock pictures, you know the ones we’re talking about… the grainy low quality ones with poor lighting!
Of course, we have an in-house photographer so we do try and take as many pictures as possible but there are some instances where stock photos are necessary. Free stock photos provide a quick and easy solution without the hefty price tag of many stock websites.
So, after many hours of searching we have found a few that are worth sharing. Not only are these 100% free but they also don’t have any strict licensing, meaning you can use them where ever you want and you don’t have to credit the original photographers.
It’s great that photographers from all over the world would want to provide us all with such fabulous and high quality images! A lot of bloggers and small businesses can’t afford to buy expensive stock pictures. And we even contribute to one of these websites ourselves, because we love the idea of helping the business/blogging community.
