Someone with magazine/publishing experience...

1. Does anyone know a cheaper option than Getty Images for getting images of celebrities to print in a magazine?

2. When writing a story/report/etc, are you allowed to mention names such as David Beckham and LA Galaxy (just in plain text) without permission from them?

Thank you in advance!

There is a large thread somewhere on DF Free photo libraries, check them out

Yes you are allowed to mention names without permission providing you do not libel them. It depends a lot on the context of the editorial. Permisssion is only needed if there is a commercial endorsement.
