Free & Paid Video Footage Resources

Like books, music, paintings, and photographs, video also falls into the public domain and/or copyright protection.  Please be sure to check and double-check that you have the appropriate license and usage rights prior to downloading and/or using any video for any of your projects.  This list will continue to expand as I find more websites offering free & paid video, so please check back often.  If you know of a great website, please let me know.

Free & Paid Images for Personal & Commercial Use

A time-consuming thing it can be to find the right images for a project, whether that project is a book cover, poster, banner, or a social media header.  This list will expand with time, as I locate more of these websites, so come back often.  Please note that some of these websites may ask you to create an account, and it is probably a good thing that you do.  Read through their Licensing Terms & Conditions to be sure that you have the right to use, manipulate, and/or transform any image prior to downloading and using them.  Do the CYA and stay legal – you’ll save yourself a world of stress if you do.  Best of luck to you in your projects.
