12 Websites Where Nigerian Marketers Can Find Stock Photos

Gone are those days when Nigerian companies paid millions of naira (Nigerian currency) to advertising agencies, who in turn pay modelling agencies to scout for beautiful models to take several photo shoot for promoting their client’s brand.

How do I know all this? Well, I was once a TV advertising model for companies in my teens, way back in 1999. Yeah, that was during the dark days of no internet, no Facebook or Instagram.

All that is history! Thanks to the internet and a new generation of cheap stock photo sites. With as little as $1 dollar or nothing, you can download beautiful images to use on your website, social media channels, blog posts and to market your products/services.

I dug up 12 royalty-free stock photo websites used by companies such as UBA, Stanbic IBTC and others for promoting their brands. So you thought these big brands don’t like awoof (freebies)? Now you know.

Top 12 Websites Where Nigerian Marketers Can Find Stock Photos

AFRICAN AND NIGERIAN STOCK PHOTOS:

If your target audience are Nigerians or Africans, you can’t use white people on any of your online property. Therefore, these websites contain loads of black-skinned models for your needs. All you need to do is type the keyword “African Male” or “African family” or “African model” to get the best results.
