12 Creative Female Photographers on Unsplash (Free Stock Photos)

I love Unsplash for free stock photos. I use them on more than one of my websites and I’m so thankful to the photographers who donate photos to the platform. Unsplash is kind of a win-win, because the photographers get a profile page where they can link to their own website + socials and it acts as a portfolio of sorts. So cool.

Free stock photos are so valuable to a brand-new business because you can create graphics with them that align with your target audience right out of the gate. Branded photoshoots, while super valuable, are not necessarily budget-friendly for new entrepreneurs. Finding the perfect collection of free, high-quality stock photos for your business will be so helpful to you.

A list of the best unsplash photographers to get free, feminine stock photos

Here are some of my favorite female Unsplash contributors! All of these ladies take beautiful photos that are p.e.r.f.e.c.t. for you if you’re a creative entrepreneur who isn’t quite ready to invest in custom photography yet. I love more minimalistic but lightly feminine images when I’m looking for stock photos, so that’s what I’m featuring here!

1 | Kari Shea

Kari has several clean, minimalistic laptop images, lots of styled home interiors, and some pretty greenery pictures (succulents and other inside plants).

So, there ya go! A bunch of super-talented stock photographers who allow use of their images for free. Sometimes, stock images on Unsplash get overused. (Who doesn’t love a free stock photo?!) But do some digging and you can uncover hidden gems that fit your brand’s unique style. Do you use Unsplash when you need a stock photo for your business? If not, where do you like to look? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
