Best Websites for Free Stock Photos

Looking for a photo to accompany your Facebook post? While using your own photography is ideal, there are times when you just don’t have the right photo or no photo at all.  In these instances, having access to good stock photography is very helpful. 

Here are a few of our favorite free resources for beautiful stock photos.    

Pexels is our go-to for simple and clean food photos and lifestyle shots. Check in each week for over 70 new images curated from smaller stock photo sites and professional photographers. 

Looking for close-up shots, photos of a specific food, or cartoon images? Try Pixabay.

For a huge resource of great stock images, check out Free Images.  They have over 2 million images, so you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. 

Many stock photos err on the side of a being overly staged. For beautiful, authentic images, we love Albumarium.
