What phone pictures can I use for my website?

I created a website recently, and I am now adding a page for the services that I offer, with the price for those services. I want to put up pictures of the devices that I do repairs for, however I also don't want to run into any licensing issues with Apple, or any other manufacturer if I put up a picture of their device. So where can I go to for these pictures? Will I actually have any problems if I just use the first stock picture of the device that I can find on the Internet?

FYI: I created and am hosting my website on Squarespace.

Is this a good question?

Hi there,

Using stock photos without explicit permission or purchase can definitely get you into some trouble. I'd recommend licensing images through Creative Commons. They provide free, open-content licensing that maximizes digital sharing of assets. You can find Creative Commons licensed work here, with images sourced from sites like Flickr, Fotopedia, Open Clip Art Library, and Pixabay.

Nice research! Now work on that profile so we can get to know you better so we can chide and lambaste you ;-) Kind of an initiation to the site, it was good to talk to you on the phone.

I don't believe you will have any copyright problems with pictures that you take yourself. Now if you were to sell a picture of someone else's art yes you would be libel. I'll get you an example in a couple of minutes.

UPDATE

Here's what I was referring to "Sculptor Awarded $685,000 After Photo of Korean War Memorial Used on Stamp": http://petapixel.com/2013/09/23/sculptor...
