My Favorite Places To Get Free Stock Photos

In this day in age, we’ve become all about the visuals. We scroll websites and social media until something interesting catches our attention.

As business owners, we dream of hiring a professional photographer to shoot a series of photos that clearly show us and our brands. Well, at least I do. However, that can be a major investment (worth it) in the beginning of your business. If you don’t have the funds then I’ve got a work around for you until it’s time.

Instead of trying to take your own photos with your smartphone you can check out stock photography. Don’t let bad quality pictures ruin your first impression.

More importantly, photos that are free for commercial and non-commercial use. That require no attribution (although it is always nice to say thanks) and can be edited. You will want to look for “creative commons public domain” to be able to legally use these photos. This means that the photographer has waived all rights to their work.

2. Kaboom Pics

This is where I go when I’m looking for stock photos with a more feminine and seasonal feel. They have the best holiday photos.
