Our top 10 royalty-free stock photo sites for business

When taking photos just isn’t on the cards for you and your business online marketing efforts, all is not lost! There are many sites these days where you can buy or download quality images for free. We have put together a list of our top 10 sites for images to complement your digital marketing.

royalty-free stock photo - pixabay

Costs: Free | Signup: Required

Pixabay would be our pick of the bunch for free stock images. There is a huge database of business photography available, and the photos are all of high quality. What makes this site stand out is you get free vector and illustration images too.

Costs: Free | Signup: Required

Pixels would have to be our second pick with its huge range of business photography. The images are well organised and of high quality – you really can’t go wrong.

royalty-free stock photo - unsplash

Costs: Free | Signup: Required

Unsplash is a great site for royalty-free stock images. There isn’t the sheer volume of photographs like on other platforms, but the quality is some of the best we have seen.

royalty-free stock photo - picjumbo

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

Picjumbo has an interesting history. When you work in the industry you find that a lot of amazing images will be rejected from stock sites for unknown reasons, so a 24-year-old decided one day he was going to create his own database! It is now thriving and provides a broad range of quality images. Picjumbo is also one of the cleanest, nicest sites we have used.

royalty-free stock photo - rawpixel

Costs: Free | Signup: Required

Rawpixel is another great free stock image site. It is clean, provides quality images and is easy to use. What we also like about Rawpixel is their paid versions contribute to Hope for Children.

royalty-free stock photo - monguefile

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

This one is also a little different, hosting more like the everyday photos that you will find in your Google drive. However, if that is what you’re looking for, then this photo collection is perfect.

royalty-free stock photo - Gratisography

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

Gratisography is a great choice if you are looking for something a little different to your average stock image, providing a selection that is inspired by the quirky and fun. The image quality is high, so if there is something that fits your aesthetic, it will be a great addition to your marketing material.

royalty-free stock photo - stockvault

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

Stockvault is another free stock image site that offers business photography. While we feel they are not of the same quality as some of the higher-rated sites, they do offer another choice. We encourage you to look around for a variety of images so you don’t end up using the same as everyone else.

royalty-free stock photo -  startup stock photos

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

As its name suggests, Startup is aimed at startups! The photos are quality, but not perfect, however you get a realistic feel from them. They seem genuine, which is important for a new business.

royalty-free stock photo - Reshot

Costs: Free | Signup: Not required

Reshot prides itself on being a community site that gives inspiring photographers a place to share their creative inspiration. Take time to browse the catalogue and see what gem you can find for your business.


These are some great options for finding FREE stock images for your business, but just remember – the best way to promote your business is to actually promote YOUR business. Ideally, use photos and videos of your premises, your employees or yourself, your products being used and even some happy customers. If you are worried about the cost, relax – you might find business photography much more affordable than you think. Check out our photography packages below, or email us for a quote.
