    Thumbs up

    I agree with the previous posts. Usually easiest to just photograph them yourself. But GraphicRiver is never a bad choice.

    Alternatively you could try going on Behance.net and searching "freebie" or "free" or "mock-up" thats where I find all of my mock ups.

    Also you could try using Cinema 4d and making them yourself

    Try the "Enfold" theme from Themeforest. Also, browsing the library at Mojothemes is a good bet.

    This is what sucks about aspiring to be a designer... so expensive to start off, and so few opportunities out there.

    I would spend the two hundred dollars for a month of access at Getty or something... 25 images download per day plus thirty days... that's 750 images, plenty of quality stuff from which to build a nice portfolio.

    Also, don't be obvious and rip a design verbatim to add to your portfolio. Remember the 60% rule... change something 60% and its an original design again.

    I'd also buy the student/teacher version of Adobe Creative Suite until you get your foot in the door somewhere. It's much cheaper than the commercial version. Once you have momentum and want to freelance on the side or something, then make the upgrade.

    Also, a nice website is very important. Personalize a suitable template from Themeforest or somewhere similar. Then, make sure you have nice quality images of your portfolio on there, I'd say around fifteen or twenty that represent your best work. Then, a pdf of your resume, well-written, creative, and eye-catching. Pay someone to write it if you have to (although, I subscribe to the belief that all good designers should be good writers as well).

    Hope this helps. It looks like you might be spending between $750-$1000 to get on the challenging, sometimes hellish road that is graphic design.

    Maybe you should try to shoot some photos. There's an article on Jesscia Walsh's blog about how to set up your own

    Live surface

    I agree Live surface is pretty good and very quick even some of the mock ups allow you to change the sizing of some, pretty reasonable if you need it on a monthly subscription basis or yearly

    Graphic River is my go to. Some times Design Cuts also have mock ups in their packs.
