Stock Photography

Beautiful images to enhance your business

About Stock Photography

High quality stock photography is readily available for businesses of all sizes at an affordable cost, via one-off fees, credit purchases, subscriptions, or sometimes free.

Stock Photography ServicesStock images are licensed to the buyer, allowing particular uses and timeframes. The most common form of license is 'Royalty Free', which means that the stock image supplier is responsible for the legal permissions required, such as with the photographer, models, and brands. Printed materials may require an extended license, depending on the intended use and volumes involved.

The larger stock image services also carry stock illustrations, graphics, backgrounds, video, and audio. The huge selection available and low costs mean there really is no need to use poor quality free imagery, or take the risk in 'lifting' images from websites - a legal minefield best avoided.

We've included a range of respected stock image sites, including some free libraries. All are suitable for use by UK-based businesses for websites or marketing and other printed materials.
