You can search through profiles of photographers and the search results to find an image and use it according to the individual restrictions in place. Flickr is well-established in the photojournalism community as a Creative Commons platform – but it calls itself an ‘online photo management and sharing application’. There are more than just images available too, you can also find literary works, videos, audio and other research. For images, head to the search function and use keywords to find what you are looking for. You can also narrow the search by filtering by commercial or modified use, and there are other filters on the search results page – a useful one is the drop down menu to filter by specific licences. The problem with stock image sites is that they can quickly become quite one-note and generic.
