I need good hair stock photo's

The majority of the retouches I have been doing lately have been extensive skin retouching and creating voluptuous hair. Does anyone know of a good site for free stock photography and is in good supply of hair?!


Thanks for the help!

Re: I need good hair stock photo's

I am sorry but do not know of any good free stock sites. Neither do I know of any sites where I can get my photographs retouched to a high standard for nothing. I would like a new car but cannot find a good one for free and my wife needs a birthday present - where can I get good free designer dresses?

Come on - microstock sites such as BigStock Photo, Crestock, iStock and fotolia are not expensive and the choice is vast. Is it not reasonable that the photographer should get some income for your use of his images?

well that could have done without the sarcasm. and I know PLENTY of photographers including myself that submit photography that could be of use to other people. I usually never have trouble finding great stock on DeviantArt... but the lack of quality in some images are disappointing.

I just don't understand the big ego....

I am sorry, I didn't mean to offend.

It is just that, as a professional photographer I get a bit upset when people expect to get photographs for free.

Re: I need good hair stock photo's

I understand. I get aggravated when people find out that I take photo's and I can draw/ illustrate and just expect me to take photo's of their children or design tattoo's or do portraits just because I can!

I absolutely do not mind paying for good photography but right now my budget is non existent thanks to tuition going up and commuting to school every day. Im trying to get my portfolio perfect and every penny I can save REALLY helps.

Thank you for the sites!

Re: I need good hair stock photo's

The other thing you need to be aware of when purchasing or downloading stock images is that they will be JPGs and will usually have been heavily retouched already. You may end up with images full of artefacts which will be no good for your portfolio.

Good luck anyway

Re: I need good hair stock photo's

All it costs is download time and its easy to see if the image is worth it or not I used free stock images for composites without any issues what so ever. Raw would be preferred but heck free is free for a high res image nothing to cry about....

Oh and http://www.modelmayhem.com/t.php?forum_id=76 has tons and tons of professional raw images to train on many retoucher work on them and trade the finished Hires jpgs so they can use it in their portfolios giving credit to the photographer as well of course all fair trade for time and top quality raw images not bad at all.
