Free High Quality Stock Photos

 

We all know how hard it can be to find free stock photos, especially ones that are high quality. Working in the web industry, my husband and I are always looking for images for blogs and clients’ websites. I’ve spent hours sifting through not so good stock pictures, you know the ones I’m talking about… the grainy low quality ones with poor lighting!

Of course I am a photographer and I 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 and without the hefty price tag of many stock websites.

So after many hours of searching I 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 (but you can always donate to them).

I think it’s a kind gesture from photographers all over the world to provide us all with such fabulous and high quality images! A lot of small bloggers and businesses can’t afford to buy lots of expensive stock pictures. I even contribute to one of these websites myself, as I love the idea of helping the business/blogging community.

So let’s start… here’s my favourite top 3

3. Kaboom Pics http://kaboompics.com/

This site offers a variety of pictures to choose from, from abstract to food photography they have it all. Definitely one to bookmark!

 2. Albumarium http://albumarium.com/

Albumarium

Albumarium offers high-resolution photographs, organised in different albums, this is much easier to look through photos in the same category. I really love the layout of the website as it’s really user friendly.

I saved the best till last! Pexels has got to be my all time favourite, there’s such a variety to choose from and you could spend hours downloading such awesome images. I also contribute my own images on here so check out my profile: https://www.pexels.com/u/lisa-fotios-26735/

If you were hoping for more then don’t worry, next week I’ll write a blog about the others that didn’t make this one!

I hope this has helped all you bloggers and business people out there.

Have fun downloading!
