The New Kid on the Stock Photography Block
Earlier this year we wrote about the top ten stock image resources and today we’re back with an update! A new kid on the block has grabbed out attention and we want to tell you all about Unstock, a photography resource that’s part of the Envato market.
They’re distancing themselves from the stereotypes associated with traditional stock photography and prefer to refer to their resource as ‘authentic photography’. You might think this tag is a little pretentious but when you see the quality of their images you’ll start to see why they’re considered to stand apart from their competitors.
The premise is simple. Every image on the site is covered by the same Regular License and, whichever image you choose, the price will be the same: $5. Choosing stock images can be confusing, with fluctuating prices and different licenses for different images, so it’s refreshing to see a site approach things with such a simple solution.
Images are split into thematic categories that will help inspire you and lead you towards the perfect image for your project. Rather than searching through topics such as ‘Architecture’, ‘People’ and ‘Business’, you can choose between things like ‘Lovable creatures’, ‘Together’ and ‘The art of food’. It’s a little detail that artists will really appreciate, and we think Unstock is going to make waves in what was previously a rather bland area of the creative market.
