More than likely you have heard of stock photography before. Stock photos have been around for a long time and consist of large collections of professional camera shots in seemingly endless categories --people, places, landscapes, animals, celebrities, sports and business photos.
However, in the past several years a new trend has emerged in the field of stock photography. Stock photography websites now offer many of the shots they have catalogued free of charge. Usually, all you have to do is log on, register, read up on the subject, select your photo and then follow the download instructions.
While many professional designers and marketing experts choose to pay royalty fees for stock shots, people who need good photography for all types of print productions can choose to download a photo for free. However, when you do so, you are still required to read any and all legal rules that are associated with that photo.
To find free stock photos, just do a simple online search: use the keywords "free stock photo" and you'll be deluged with sites you can access. However, remember not all website companies are legitimate so exercise caution before you start downloading.
