10 Amazing Websites To Find FREE Stock Photos

Let me save you the trouble, here are 10 websites you can get free stock photos to use for your social media platforms and your blog. Never, I repeat never go to google images and just grab whatever image you want. Because you don’t know if it’s free stock or not. If the owner of the images finds you using your images and it’s not free stock, you are in big trouble and could face a lawsuit.

Many of these photographs are free from copyright restrictions or licensed under creative commons public domain dedication. This means you can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission. Some sites require attribution, but it’s always nice to give a simple credit to all images and never claim them as your own.

With that out of the way, let’s dive into our top picks for free stock photos. People are tired of cheesy stock photos – Instead they want images that are authentic, emotionally driven, and tell a story.
