I couldn’t possibly overstate the need for digital photography. Graphic designers love to use creative commons photos in digital work, but these same photos can also prove useful to an online journalist or editor. The need for digital photographs has risen tremendously in the past decade.

Thankfully modern Internet technologies have been advancing just as quickly. This gallery includes a handful of resources for locating photographs online. Some will provide creative commons licensing while others may be solely for inspiration. Whether you’re a photographer or another creative artist looking for great photographs, these websites are sure to help.
