Not all stock photos sites are horribly expensive. iStockPhoto.com was the first to offer photos at next to no cost, which they were able to do because most of them came from aspiring photographers eager to get their work out there. The prices have gone up a little over the years, but they're still dirt cheap compared to most other stock photo sites - it varies with size, but you're not generally going to be paying more than a few dollars.

And there are now a number of others that are trying the same model - dreamstime.com, bigstockphoto.com, stockxpert.com and more. Plus even a few free ones like sxc.hu. All of them are focussed on the work of less well known and often amateur photographers, but there are still a lot of good quality images there, and the prices are well within the reach of most book artists.
