Stock images are photographs available for publishers, graphic artists, designers and so forth, needing access to quality photo images for use in their publishing projects.
Rather than the high cost to hire a photographer to go out and shoot on location for special publishing needs, you can gain access to DW Stock's huge library of stock images instead, with over 200,000 images available for use.
Stock images are usually available in multiple resolutions and graphic formats, to suit the needs of the publisher. A web site designer typically requires 72 ppi jpg/gif/png graphics, whereas a magazine publisher is much more likely to require 300 ppi TIFF, for example.
DW specializes in online stock images with an Australian, Horticulture and People & Lifestyles themes. Based in Sydney Australia, we have access to an awesome collection of stock photos online via our website. In particular, if you need great images of Australian people at work or play, Australian landscapes and creatures (kangaroo, emu, kookaburra, etc) and so forth, then you've come to the right place.
Our Stock Photography Services
The DW Stock Picture Library is one of Australia's leading stock photograph galleries. Over the last four years the photo library has built up a rich resource of over 200,000 high quality stock images. We represent some of Australia's leading photographers as well as many great international stock agencies.
Our Categories page will show you some of the subjects that we
carry stock photographs of. Aside from our large selection of photographs still waiting to be
loaded on our site, we have enormous coverage of Australian animals
(Kangaroos, Koalas, Insects, Marine life etc.), Australian landscapes and
cities (Deserts, Mountains, National Parks, Beaches, Mood Scenes,
Rainforests) and Travel images covering most countries of the world. Lastly, our people images are natural and not staged.
Combined with this wonderful collection of great stock images covering the widest range of topics, the library is the only one in Australia to also offer
you the freelance services of researchers with extensive knowledge of picture
& text researching, photo-editing and rights & permission clearance. In other
words, if the images you are seeking are not in our files, we will locate them
for you, clear the necessary rights, document all images and finalise the project
on your behalf.
We can assist you in creating and establishing your own
in-house photographic collection, resulting in an efficient filing system where
previously inaccessible images can be easily retrieved and utilised for your in-house
To view samples of projects we have been involved with and for
