Decent bimages wanted to Buy

  RussB74 14:41 03 Aug 2008

Hello all
Not a technical question I`m afraid, but of interest to me.
I`m trying to build up a decent collection of good quality images, Scenery, Landscapes, Trains, Planes and anything else of interest except People.
I can`t download anything (Only on dialup) so if anyone knows of a place where they sell decent DVDs of still images of this sort of thing I would be very grateful for the address.

Many Thanks

As a freelance photographer what you need to find is an image library that has 'Royalty Free' images. Any other would be for single use only. For high quality pictures the price is not going to be cheap. You have to remember the time effort and expertise that goes into getting those sort of images in the first place. They are usually taken on profesional equipment and quite rightly the photographer would have wanted a good price for the image library to buy the picture copyright outright.

Many thanks for your answer, I am not looking for something for nothing, but there are plenty of images out there that are Royalty Free and that I would be quite willing to pay for, I just don`t know any addresses and thought that someone on this forum might be able to point me in the right direction.
