If you can’t take the right picture for a content piece, or you want to communicate something that you can’t easily photograph (ex. frustration), then it’s acceptable to use stock photography as your last option.


Here are some good resources:



Unsplash has free, very high quality imagery you can use. Though the pictures are gorgeous, they’re random and there’s no way to search. You just have to keep scrolling until you find what you want.



iStock is one of (if not the) largest stock photography sites online. They have a huge selection you can easily search through. However, they’re not cheap. One image could cost you at least $12.
