Need pics for website intro page

I'm trying to make a collage for the main page of an e-commerce website geared towards motorcycles, etc. I'd like to get a few high quality pics from knee-dragging, stuntin, FMX, cars, & skateboarding. I don't want to give all the details just yet, but it will look great after I put the rest of the designs on it and mix it all together. I'd like to get some high-quality SLR shots if possible.

Basically, I'm looking for original pictures that you give permission for me to use and not just some random internet pics. This board is full of all types of riders and backgrounds, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
Once the design is done I'll post it up as well.

Thanks!

Goto a Stock picture site. You sound like you are on a budget.

My buddy rides FMX and i took this with a crappy camera. Since i took the pic i think that means you can use it if you want. I have some more.

Send me your email. I have about 3000 Hi Res track pics of members and some stunt pix, but I will have to get permission from the stunters to use those pics.

Charge this guy for use. Pictures are worth money. He is using your pictures to make money. Why should you not get paid?

Maybe they are not taking pics to get paid, maybe they take pics for fun.

I took these pics simply for the pleasure of being outside at the track and taking pics. I didn't charge the riders for their pics, so why would I charge this dude?

Edit: ParAvon, I am not as good of a photog as you.

Don't get the wrong idea man. I know where you are coming from. I don't mind paying for pictures either. I'm not making money off the pictures, I'll be making money off of my product. I just wanted them for the main page anyways. If someone doesn't want to help out, then I understand. Some people wouldn't mind having their picture up and publicized and those are the people that I'm looking for. For instance, if motohouston wanted to make a new banner, and asked for pics, I'm sure many people would be more than happy to donate a picture of themselves. Many people on here know me and we all help each other out in one way or another. I'm not just some Joe blow who signed up looking for pictures to use.

No problem giving away free pictures but not if the other person wants to use it commercially.
