This past weekend I watched a Periscope broadcast by the lovely Courtney, founder/chief executive of Think & Grow Chick. Courtney helps women take action on what they want in life and business. She's also the author of Get What You Want. Courtney's "scope" focused around branding through photography. She revealed one of the best kept secrets in stock photography; a website called Create HER Stock. A stock photography site that offers a selection of free and at a premium ($7/month) beautiful black women in pictures to be used in various uses.
Now, I don't know about you, but I've struggled to land on/find really great, candid pictures of black women (and men). So the second Courtney mentioned Create HER Stock, I "ran" to the website. There is a limited selection immediately available to view in the Free Image Gallery. But with the premium service, offering 300 pictures that are changed out on a monthly basis, I couldn't resist but to sign up.
Here is just a small sample size of what they have to offer (available to see now in the Free Image Gallery).
Courntey nor the founder of Create HER Stock paid me for this post. I'm one photography geek showing love to another.
There are additional websites out there like Pixaby (free), the Dollar Photo Club and Canva that will sell gorgeous pictures for just $1! But for something so unique as this? Look no further. Great photography is key to conveying any message on your website and through social media. I touch on this a little bit in 4 Ways to Get the Best Website Photos. Don't settle!
Happy Picture Searching!
All the best,
