Graphic design resources: Portraits

on September 1st, 2008

These are my favourite images this week; having bought a subscription to for one month and 89 dollars, which covers up to 300 images (isn’t that insanely cheap?!) I have been frantically browsing for good photos and realised that

  1. It’s very difficult to find unusual and beautiful images and
  2. There are plenty of such images that people just don’t find, given the huge amount of time required to sift through thousand of images for that one shot that makes you gasp.

So I decided I’ll shortlist my favourites and post them here, in some sort of logical order. Today the theme is portraits, but I have another 5-6 categories in mind, so stay tuned!

On the logistics side: clicking on the image will take you to the Dreamstime website, where you can buy it. Happy browsing!
