    where can i get the best stock photos?

    hey just wondering what the best stock photo site is in peoples experience? at the moment im after mostly environmental/landscape shots, and i guess i may bite the bullet and start paying for my reference. so yeah, any suggestions, throw em my way.

    .. oh yeah and if anyone knows of any genuinely good stock resources that are royalty and payment free then let me know also

    thanks in advance, guys and girls!

    Hey man...
    The ones I know of are :
    Getty Images Acclaim Images
    and
    Corbis
    These are all images you pay for- but they have a huge selection. I can't say I've ever used any of these companies. Sometimes i like to browse through their sites - and the photos tend to be geared towards graphic designers. I feel illustrators have different needs some instances, so this may not help at all. Hope it does though!

    I may have misunderstood...but I think they all have royalty-free/stock photo sections. You just have to look a bit

    Stoph,

    There are a couple of free reference site you can look into though the subject matter may be a bit limited.

    A few that come to mind are:
    Morgue File
    The New York Public Library Digital Gallery
    University of California History Project
    The Library of Congress: American Memory

    Various misc reference:
