About Us

Welcome to ShotStash! We’re a small independently managed free stock photo site. Our mission is to create and offer for free a highly curated collection of beautiful stock images that you can use both personally and commercially.

The Right Images At the Right Price

Whether you’re building a brand new website for your business or creating a blog about your personal life, you’re going to need images.

The right image is more than an accent. It’s no longer optional. These days, website and social users expect to see great photographs that reinforce your message and evoke just the right emotional response.

That’s the power of a fabulous photograph, and that’s why we’re here: to help you find just the right image to put the finishing touch on all of your creative projects.

Commercial Use Included

What’s more, those traditional stock images may well come with a whole host of restrictions as to how and in what kind of context you can use your selected image.

An informational web page? Sure. Your commercial brochure? Not without paying a whole lot more money.

Prohibitions against commercial usage are very common in reasonably priced stock photo collections.

At ShotStash, however, we make no distinctions between personal and commercial use. You can use our images in almost any way you like.

Using ShotStash Images in Your Work

ShotStash offers high-quality stock photographs for use in all your creative projects, under a generous license.

There are few restrictions on ShotStash image use. You cannot resell the images, offer them for download on your own stock image website, or use them in a way that implies the creator or any person or brand depicted in the image endorses you in any way.

Otherwise, the terms of our license for all of our images allow both commercial and non-commercial (or personal) use.

While the actual copyright remains with the image’s creator or photographer, you’re free to use the selected image in web pages, ebooks, brochures, posters, reports, product descriptions and more.

All of our high-quality professional images are available to you for download and use absolutely free of charge. There are no hidden fees for additional rights. You get access to the entire file and can edit it, modify it, crop or filter it any way you like, for no additional cost. What’s more, there’s no limit on how many times you can display a ShotStash image.

That’s because at ShotStash, free means free, always.
