Tired of the Same Stock Photos?

Here are 7 Stock Photo Sites to Bookmark Now!

Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly recognized a stock photo?

Have you considered how many people are relying on design tools like Canva and Adobe Spark for content creation? They are all pulling stock photos from the same libraries. 

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE me some Canva, but I also want my content to stand out. 

Here are a few of my favorite stock photo sites:

  1. Nappy.co – Beautiful photos of Black and Brown people, for free. 
  1. IvoryMix.com– 550+ free stock photos and resources for content creators. Ivory Mix also offers a paid membership  which includes new styles images, templates, captions, and other resources every month.. 
  1. CreateHERStock.com – Your destination for authentic stock images featuring melanated women. 
  1. Unsplash.com – Thousands of free, beautiful images and photos, powered by creatives all over the world. 
  1. Pexels.com – Thousands of high-quality stock photos & videos shared by talented creators. 
  1. Pixabay.com – Over 1.9 million stunning free images and videos to download and use for anything. 
  2. Pixistock .com – Styled stock photos, graphics, and Canva templates for female entrepreneurs. You can access 30 days of free stock photos and a content planner or purchase a membership that includes 3000+ Premium Canva Templates, 5000+ Styles Stock Photos, and more.

I prefer to use a mix of free and paid stock photo sites. Free sites are readily available to everyone, and I feel like the paid sites are a little more “exclusive”.

I can always find what I am looking for using these sites. Scrolling through them is also a great source of inspiration. You don’t have to use the photo library within your content creation tools. Mix it up so that your content will stand out!
