The most frequent question I get asked is where do I get my photos. Photos are always needed for social media posts, blog graphics, and for any of your visual content needs. I’m not a photographer therefore I have to find photo sites.
Not just any photos, AMAZING photos and on the cheap. When I say on the cheap, I mean F.R.E.E. If you’re good at taking photos, you should use your own.
Everyone gets so worked up about photos because people aren’t sure if they should give attribution. When you see this below, it means No Rights Reserved.
Creative Commons Zero (CC0) means photos that can be used by anyone for any reason and may freely edit, enhance, and reuse the works for any purposes without restriction under copyright.
You’re free to use the photos without any attribution or credit on the images.
Okay enough of the licensing and legalities, let’s get to the good stuff. Here is my list of awesome photo sites for F.R.E.E. or may have premium memberships for bulk downloads.
Check them out!
If you have any go-to F.R.E.E. sites and they’re not listed here. Please let me know so I can add it to the list.

Here’s a curated list from Canva with 74 sites with free photos. Be sure to check if you need to provide attribution!
You always hear CONTENT IS KING but you know what I say VISUAL CONTENT IS QUEEN. They go hand-in-hand and provide each other balance. Just how a good marriage should be…
