Hitting the
"Stock Block"

The equivalent of "writer's block" for image seekers.

You’ve looked for hours, you can’t find the right one, it doesn’t have the “right” look. Omg what is that? Too expensive... More of the same... Boring. Curses. Help!


 Death to Stock is a resource, belief system, and call to action for artists around the world who unite in their journeys to make their own way.

Our mission is to resource the creatives with tools they can use for their projects, teach them what we know, and consistently fuel them.

We believe that everyone can be an artist, because being an artist is an approach to your craft rather than a title you acquire.

We pursue this mission because isolation, inequality, and scarce resources lead us to remove humanity from our art. “Stock” is as much a programmed mentality as it is a category of media.

Death to Stock is not concerned with quantity. Our focus is a member-based experience that shows up to push you into the future with fresh media, education, and direction.

Let’s make something together.


New Age of Work: Goods

Featured Free Photo Pack

For this pack, Alexander Tan and Bailey Julio teamed up to produce a set of images based on the future of work. A future in which we move project to project in a fluid manner, where we break constraints of the present, and where our creativity shines as the value that we give to the world.


+ Professional AND Human.

“Oh, this is different.”

When everything looks the same, Death to Stock consistently creates non-scripted media from real stories that you can feel and not just see.


+ Affordable, predictable pricing.

“No questions here.”

If your work is all about changing, adapting and making edits on the fly, you don’t want to worry about which content you’ve paid for. Premium members get access to our full, unlimited-download-library, all starting at $15/month.

+ One Simple License.

“It’s always accessible.”

Every image and media element we produce has the same simple license, so there’s no guessing, confusion or worry. All of our media is produced by Death to Stock and cleared by Death to Stock. Who’s got time for long legalese?
