Food Stock Photos

We’re excited to announce our new food stock photos section on this site.  It’s taken us a while to find a workable solution for licensing our food stock photos directly, but we have finally managed to do it.

We have a huge collection of food stock photos that we have built over the years and our work has been licensed by everyone from recipe bloggers, to major grocery store chains, advertising agencies and even major food processing companies.

Unfortunately, the stock photo industry has been on a trajectory since about 2005 that is leading to its demise.  Rates to photographers have been cut so low that there is no incentive to produce quality work.  At the same time they are aggressively recruiting smart phone “photographers” in a belief that massive quantities of photos are better than good photography. The result is that for years stock photo buyers have been complaining about having to wade through the mountains of garbage in their effort to find one good photo. 

Buyers were also faced with the problem that if they wanted a good price, they had to buy monthly or annual subscriptions that automatically renewed on them and were difficult to cancel (some agencies actually charge clients to cancel their subscriptions!).  

We decided to change that.  And the good news is that we have worked out a way to do it and still provide you with a single image price that is less than half of what the major stock photo agencies charge.  You can license the images you need at fair prices without having to pay for images you don’t need!

We have curated our food stock photos into collections to make it easier to find what you are looking for.  There is also a specific stock photo search function that is separate from our main site search.  It works best if you type in keywords separated by commas.  But try also using keyword phrases.  They can bring up different results.

The checkout page will take you to PayPal.  You don’t need a PayPal account to check out, you can use any credit or debit card to pay.  Our servers are secure and we don’t store your credit card info after your transaction.  

Take a minute to browse our collections of royalty free food stock photos and see what we have to offer.  We are still in the process of uploading photos, but when we have finished you will have well over 15,000 food stock photos to choose from!
