High-quality images are really key when it comes to representing your brand, whether it’s online or offline.

Yet for some reason, many companies still use poor quality stock photography to represent their brand. The truth is that high-quality stock photography doesn’t have to command a high price tag.

(As an example, we got the image above for free on Unsplash.)

To prove this, we’ve compiled a list of brilliant resources for free, high-quality stock images – for websites, blogs and similar online properties.


Unsplash is a fantastic photography resource!

There is so much to choose from here.

Plus, every photo published is licensed under Creative Commons Zero, so users are free to copy, modify, distribute and use any photo without permissions or attribution.


Negative Space

Negative Space offers beautiful, high-resolution stock photos.

Whether for personal or commercial use, and all of the CC0-licensed images are completely free to use!

The site is really well designed, and finding images is easy. You can, for example, filter through the gallery of photos, by category.



PicJumbo features a large range of free stock photos, backgrounds and images in high resolution, for personal and commercial use.

The site is really easy to navigate, thanks to the onsite search and all of the images being categorised.

Keep checking back as new images are added daily. There is also a paid option if you want access to more photography.


Startup Stock Photos

Startup Stock Photos probably has one of the smaller collections on offer, but the quality is excellent.

The photography is perfect if your project needs to capture the look and feel of a startup environment.

The only small negative is that there is no onsite search, so you have to scroll through the pictures until you find something you are looking for.
