I'm looking for a data set that has a larger number of images associated with 1 individual in a set to fine-tune a neural net for identification as a research project. Having 5-10 individuals is more than enough. So far, I've been trying with downloading celebrity images using different search engines (and icrawler), but most search engines give 60-80 images at best (with bing being the best so far with ca. 120).

Instagram is a start. Just scrape and use opencv or similar to identify faces. Or, manually sort faces.

Instagram is a simple http site that can be crawled recursively. It's a matter of counting the images so tweak it and find a good balance. Nobody is going to take 1000 pictures of the same face so dont expect perfection.
