  • Journal Collective started off as a high aesthetic stock photography website. I founded the company with another business partner in 2015. We've had first-hand experience of how irritating it is to be charged a fortune for terrible stock imagery. Our competitors demand expensive rates, awful restrictions of usage, and not to mention their confusing copyright rules. Our business model had this in mind. Our stock-photography is completely at your disposal, whether it’s for your blog, business website, company leaflet or social media accounts - we’re the platform you can use to communicate to the world in the best visual way possible. www.journalcollective.com [site closed since Jan 2017].
