“A picture is worth a thousand words” – at least it is on the web and social media. One of the most common concerns I hear from my clients is their struggle to find the images for their website or social media, due to lack of budget or relevant images availability. Although custom photography sessions featuring your own product/services is always preferred, sometimes stock photographs can come handy for tasks like social media posts. Luckily, there are some amazing stock photo sites on the web now that you can start using right away without pulling out your wallet.
