If you are looking for completely free stock photos that are unique, weird, and wonderful then I have got a collection of ten websites you probably don’t know about and you should consider checking out you have probably heard of Unsplash, pexels, and pixabay they are the big players in free stock photos.
However, this list will include lesser-known sites where you can find amazing free photos from independent and professional photographers from around the world. The photos on these websites are free to download, edit and use even in commercial projects. Double-check the license before you use them. In some cases, you need to give attribution but most of these sites don’t require attribution or signup.
Our first website is libreshot.com. All photos on this website are taken by one man i.e Martin Pharrell. Who kindly released his photos online for free that you can use without attribution. Thanks to Martin Pharrell. He has a good collection of street photography cityscapes and landscapes that you would not find anywhere else, as with most sites on this list they will make money from referrals to paid photo sites like Shutterstock. The paid photos will often be blended in with the free photos on this site is easy to differentiate the ads from the original photos.
Our next site is stokpic.com. This is another one started by one man giving away all his photos. You are free to use them for any use without attribution. The site features a lot of nature and landscapes although they have photos in all the major categories. This is good for diverse and original photos.
ISORepublic.com has over 6,000 photos and videos. All free Creative Commons licenses with no attribution required. This is another easy-to-use website if you click on collections you can find photos in all the major categories. The two collections with the most photos are food and people.

Customary photos of laptops and a phone and notepad are included too. It always seems to be MacBooks and notepads together or MacBooks and an iPhone and a notepad. You never will find a Windows laptop and an iPhone in a stock photo.
