An attractive beautiful website will help get your prospective customers interested in what you have to offer.

At the heart of doing this is getting amazing imagery to put on it.

You can go to premium stock photography websites who charge a fee for monthly access or per download.

However, there are websites out there where photographers have offered their images for use for free!

What is the CC0 License?

The Creative Commons CC0 license is usually what the photographer agrees to when they distribute their photo for free on free stock image websites. That means you can copy, modify, distribute any photo on the site, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission!
