10 best free stock photos for autumn

best free fall autumn stock photosThanksgiving is a delightful time of year when we revel in the joy and warmth our family and friends bring, and reflect on what we are most grateful for in life.

As a public relations professional who supports companies of all sizes and across various industries, I am incredibly thankful for photographers who graciously offer their work free of cost or copyright restrictions.

High-quality imagery is crucial for effective communications, elevating brochures, e-newsletters, websites, blogs and social media channels to heightened professionalism. Polished photographs are not only more pleasing to the eye, but also further illustrate a brand’s story to consumers. However, not every organization has the financial resources to create their own visuals or continuously purchase expensive stock photos. Luckily, there are some top-notch online resources that catalogue royalty-free images available for use and download without fees.

Previously on the RoseComm blog, we shared our picks for the best free winter stock photos and free summer stock photos. Thanksgiving is a celebration of the fall season, so below we rounded up our favorite copyright-free photos that capture the spirit of autumn.
