ISO Republic is a website that provides high-quality free photos for designers and developers to use in either commercial or personal projects. I started the site a few months ago now, with the site itself being a custom design and build on WordPress.
If you’re working on a small or independent project then obtaining high-quality photography can be prohibitively expensive, or near impossible if you look at the cheaper end of the stock photo market, where images can be a little cheesy to say the least.
All our images are provided at high-resolution, on average around 4,000px wide. Whilst we don’t require attribution if the images are used on commercial projects, it is greatly appreciated if possible. We allow pretty much any commercial use, including websites, apps, WordPress themes, PSD templates, and also printed use in magazines, posters, flyers etc.
We already have a pretty nice archive of good quality free images, with an emphasis on urban and nature shots from a number of cities and countries. We also have a good archive of texture based images, web designers in particular will find these useful as background images. Soon I am going to start adding more food and product photography to offer a wider variety of images available.
Later this year I also plan to add a mockup section, then designers and developers will be able to download layered PSD mockups for their web or app designs on hi-res images of laptops, smartphones, tablets etc.
Whilst the majority of the images on the site are currently taken by myself, we are also starting to get people wanting to contribute to the site, so if any of you are budding photographers and want to be featured then please get in touch.
I really hope you all enjoy the site and welcome to visit ISO Republic!
