When I first started this blog free stock photos really came in handy. I didn’t have much of a budget in terms of buying extra graphics and photos etc. -so finding royalty free images online was a much needed thing.
You don’t have to settle if you are on a budget and looking for free stock images these days! Back in the day if stock images were free they were usually cheap looking, basic, and not well styled.
If you can’t justify spending money on stock photos (just yet), there are stock websites that offer free high quality images for your project, blog or brand.
I recommend that you sign up for as many of these stock photo websites as you can so that you can maximize the number of photos you will be able to get (shameless…I know).
Why should you use styled stock photos?
It takes alot of time to style, shoot and edit your own photos!
Sometimes styling, shooting and editing photos can take hours and even an ENTIRE DAY!
You can use that time to do other tasks such as: SEO, Pinterest scheduling, course creation, eBook writing etc.
Your time is important and when you use styled stock photos you avoid the time suck that comes with styling, shooting and editing your own photos.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to step up your blogging & Pinterest game.
Spruce up your Instagram and revamp your blog (and brand) with high quality free styled stock photos!
Below are a few of the places where you can find copyright free images online for your blog or small business.
Please note: Some of the free stock photos featured here may require an attribute to the source, while others might not.
Please make sure to read the license/usage requirements before you use the images!
