Looking for stock photos for romance, science fiction, fantasy, thriller, mystery, contemporary or any other genre? Here’s where to find them.
I list a few large vendors that I’ve found useful, such as Depositphotos and Shutterstock. Since most people already know about the big ones like Getty, Adobe Stock, and Alamy, I don’t list them. The list focuses on smaller vendors who specialize in stock photos for book covers.
It includes a rough guide for photo costs of print quality images, and notes on which genres the vendor supplies. I also note vendors that carry photos of persons of color and gay/lesbian content. And because it’s occasionally useful, I note sites that sell renders of 3D character models.
