What are these birds eye view stock photos called and where can I find them?

enter image description here

I am trying to find pictures of the birds eye view images above, such as the book, stapler, pencil, and hand.

  • The picture of the stapler is not bird's eye, it's sideways.

Adding the words 'from above' after the item that you are looking for seems to do the trick in Getty, Shutterstock, Google Images, etc


Try searching 'flat lays' in shutter stock or other stock site, that seems to be the modern term for these images.
