17 Free Stock Photos to Design & Pin on Pinterest

 

Going through stock photos is a time suck for business owners. So much scrolling, scrolling, scrolling and second guessing your choice for the perfect photo. 

I was a digital magazine curator for one of the largest publishing companies in the country earlier in my career. A major part of my job was to select imagery for online articles that would stand out, and that begged to be clicked. I'm sharing my industry knowledge with you by curating themed photos that have been "vetted" by me. When you use these photos you know that they are editor & designer approved!
