If you’re writing for a client or even writing your own blog, the chances are you will need free stock photos. If you’re a photography whizz then you’ll be able to take your own photographs. If you’re like me, however, you’ll be interested in finding some stock photos for your work.
You may be able to get permission from certain photographers to use their work but if that’s not possible then here are a few links where you can find free photographs to use for your work.
*You’ll need to check each site carefully as some images may require attribution*
