In the ideal world, brands should hire a photographer for their campaigns. Large companies can do it, but what happen with small business? We’ll we have the internet and its nearly limitless resources. Just one thing, make sure you check the source and the terms and make the whole set of images look as they part of the same shoot.
Here are some free image banks to build your brand.
Unsplash is a very well curated image bank with lots of great shots.
The good thing of Pixabay is the variety and the amount of pictures and illustrations that you can find. The bad thing is that you need to filter yourself through quite a lot of not-so-good imagery to find something that is worth. Still a great resource.
This bank isn’t too bad, but they don’t have a lot of variety but they pics are mostly good in quality.
The New Old Stock is a very interesting image resource. You can find old pictures out of copyright that may be useful at a certain time.
The yummy Foodies Feed is perfect for brands looking for food images. Be warned that you’ll get hungry!
Gratisography is limited in terms of numbers but they do have some interesting and quirky images that can actually set you apart from other brands.
Other not so good!
I’m not going to lie, the ones on the list below haven’t got the best quality of images but worth checking if you are after imagery for blog posts.
