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!
The ones I know of are :
Getty Images Acclaim Images
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!
these aren't stock photos, just photo sites
thanks a lot guys, ill look into that. keep em coming!
I may have misunderstood...but I think they all have royalty-free/stock photo sections. You just have to look a bit

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:
The New York Public Library Digital Gallery
University of California History Project
