Dramatically Improve Your Brand Appearance by Using Stock Photo Bundles
January 1, 2020
If there’s anything I’ve learned about building a brand for myself and others, it’s that the photos are important. Really important. Especially on your website. That’s why I recommend purchasing stock photo bundles if you haven’t had the time or budget to book your own photo shoot for your brand.
The first two years and two thousand followers of my Instagram account as a website designer was built using stock photos. They’re entirely worth the price of investment, in my opinion.
You can expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $1,500 for custom brand photography. And let’s be honest, that’s no small price to pay, especially if you’re a newer business and you got bills to pay.
But with stock photo bundles, you can get between 15–35 photos for $20–$50 dollars. Which is not a bad price to pay for great presentation.
Here’s where I recommend you start:
One of my favorite resources for stock photos, especially bundles, is Creative Market (affiliate link, yo).
Creative Market is the designer’s go-to resource for all sorts of different design resources: photos, fonts, mockups, templates, icons, etc. And as far as the photos are concerned, you can find a wide variety of styles that will match your brand.
Here’s a collection of some of my recommended stock photo bundles available on Creative Market:

Kate Max Stock
Kate Max Stock is a great option for premium stock photos. Kate has a brilliant style and offers a pretty wide variety of scenes to select from, especially considering that her target market is entrepreneurs.
That means you’ll find a lot of home office and entrepreneur bundles on her site. Like this one, which I used to build the JANA template for my program clients:
I definitely recommend taking a spin through Kate’s shop and seeing if there’s a bundle of photos you can use to kickstart your brand photos.
Stock Photo Bundles Are Lifesavers
I honestly think stock photo bundles can make the difference between a well-presented brand and a dull one.
They change the entire look of your website, your Instagram, and even your Facebook page. Not to mention Pinterest.
And if you want to go even further with stock photos, I definitely wouldn’t not recommend one of these stock photo subscriptions.
