Top 5 Free Stock Photography Websites


(Updated to Add:

If you’re still using Google Image Search to find photos, this list is for you—because getting sued for copyright infringement is not the goal.

A decade ago, I vividly recall how tedious it was to get free, good quality, digital stock photography online. Thankfully, this is no longer an issue. While this list of free stock photography sites could easily be fifty options long, for now I’ll only share the top five free stock photography websites that I use regularly—for everything from personal project to client-work.

At the time of writing this, these websites allow you to use the photos for your projects and commercial work without giving credit—although credit is encouraged. Feel free to visit these sites, Evernote or bookmark them and add them to your stock photography rotation!
