Good stock photos are hard to come by. Stock photos are great for visuals and are really needed to bring a design to life. If you go to your normal stock websites, the photos do not have a story behind them, they feel fake and staged and bring nothing to the design. These photos are also usually premium. There has now been an increasing amount of free stock photography sites popping up and the level of photography within is outstanding.
These sites are a go to resource for designers and developers a like to bring a design to life without hassling a client for content. Although, we would all love content before design, but sometimes it just isn’t possible. It may also be the case that you are creating your own wordpress theme or website theme and you just need to fill a space with a generic image without categorising the website.
