If you're going to re-use a photograph for commercial purposes, be
quite sure that you have secured the necessary rights. Googling
around for an image, unless there is an explicit waiver of rights (or
the right kind of Creative Commons license) on the same page as the
photograph, won't make it.

In general, stock photography firms (where you typically pay a
one-time fee to buy a royalty-free image, or, in some cases, license a
"rights-managed" image for re-use) exist for a very good reason:
generally speaking, there *are* no sources of "free, good quality
photos," other than ones that you might take yourself and own all the
rights to. is a tool that will let you search the
databases of many of the larger stock photography vendors.

Good luck!

All best,
