    Celebrity Photos

    Hello:

    Does anyone know of a service (ideally free) that provides legal celebrity photos or headshots? I need about 250 of them no wider than 100 pixels.

    I've been pouring through sites such as getty images, etc and they don't seem to forthcoming on pricing.

    I appreciate any guidance anyone can provide.

    Cheers

    Where did you get that idea? Photos are only public domain if the owner consents to make them so. Copyright lasts for decades.

    Have you considered contacting the celebrities' agents and requesting headshots? This may not work and would obviously be a lot of work but for those who agree the photos will be free and high quality.

    In the short term, I'm using 'Attribution' creative commons liscense photos from Flickr. It's a bit of a pain hunting them down, but other than that, a simple photo credit and link to author's flickr page is all that's required.
