There are so many memberships out there for bloggers. As a busy teacher and blogger, I am going to do you a favor and list the best and cheapest stock images that you can get your hands on, and best of all the biggest bang for your buck.
I know how to save and I’m always looking to save, because, hey I’m a teacher! Am I right!?
Stock photo subscription
If you’re looking for the cheapest stock photo subscription, look no further than the Image Maker Membership for educator bloggers, mom bloggers or homeschool bloggers.
I wanted to get right to the point to show you how much I have used this membership in just the last month.
Let’s talk about the time it takes to actually set up a photography session to take pretty photos of our products.
I mean, for me, it takes at least a good hour to set it up and that’s not mentioning the time it takes to create the mockup for the image.
Here’s an image I made before joining the membership, and this image literally took me an hour to setup and take several pictures that I was satisfied with.
Before the membership:
Check out how I created this one after I joined the membership. It’s the same product by the way!
I mean, there’s no real comparison right?
First of, I want to talk about the light.
How many times have you grabbed your phone, taken a photo only to see complete darkness, shadows and more? Haha
Definitely not something I enjoy.
Then, fiddling with the photo apps to get the picture bright and white. No thanks!
If you’d like to try out this membership, which includes as of (August 2022: over 5,000 image mockups and transparent backgrounds to create ANY image you want).
Cheapest stock images
I still use Canva, which I find is great for making quick already setup templates.
However, with this membership, it’s particularily targetted at educators and homeschool bloggers which would help maximise their time by NOT spending it fiddling with apps, technology or even setting up with props.
This membership includes SO many props you can use to make your images stand out.
Check out what I’ve made and I’m still exploring more features and images:
These are just an example, if you browse my site, I now exclusively ONLY use the membership to create my images.
I also use them for my TPT products.
Here’s an example:
Stock photo subscription
This is an affordable stock photo subscription, I wouldn’t be be recommending it otherwise.
Other stock photo websites charge upwards of $5 per image.
These costs can add up.
And you can only use these ONCE. You can’t even manipulate them or anything.
Kelly is the owner of this membership. You can join the Facebook group here. She often shares how she uses these mockups. There are always super helpful tutorials inside which I found invaluable!
Join the waistlist to see when the Image Maker Membership opens up. She normally opens it up twice per year.
It’s SO worth it once you join, you will know!
