Whether it’s for your own website or a client project, stock photos can be a great help to bring any design to life. Unless you own a camera and a pristine MacBook Pro along with a DotGrid sketchbook, you will probably find yourself trying to find something suitable on the internet.

Trying to find a high-res professional photo that won’t cost an arm and a leg can be quite difficult. I have put together a list below of some good websites I have been told about that offer some great high-resolution images with a range of different categories. Some resources like Im Free allow you to search specifically for a subject whereas some like LifeOfPix accept submissions.
