Anybody ever use stock photography?

I used to use morguefile.com, istockphoto.com and photos.com, now I'm looking at more options. I've got just under a day to finish a brochure in order to get a shit-hot job, but all the stock photo sites are turning up crap.

All I need are a few pictures of 10-11 year olds playing sport (soccer, rugby and any event from a pentathlon). Incerdibly hard to find (and I can't afford to subscribe to any premium sites).

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help guys! shutterstock's the best image-wise, but it seems you have to subscribe, unless I'm missing something.

Try stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/)

It's free to join & has shed loads of pics.

If you want pics of kids playing sport, why not just don a long coat, and hang around in the bushes at your local playing fields...you will probably get your head punched in by a few angry dads and get yourself arrested but suffering for your art is a good thing... :har: :p

Deviantart.com has some, but its very time consuming to find the good ones.

Hey guys! Sorry I missed the last couple of comments, but thanks for the help.

Job's done now, all I can do is cross my fingers...
