LEGAL + LICENSING

You may download the photos for personal or commercial use (under the terms of the license).

Please read the complete Photo License Agreement and if you have any questions regarding permissible uses, please contact us at email@example.com.

You may not redistribute the photos, including giving them to others to use. You may not create derivative works from the photos (for example, artwork for your Etsy shop) and subsequently sell them without an Extended License. You may not claim the photos as your own by stating or implying that you photographed the images and/or own the copyright. You may not use the photo in conjunction with any project or campaign promoting pornography, hate speech, or anything else offensive or defamatory to the Stock Gallery or the subject of the photo.

IS ATTRIBUTION REQUIRED?
No, you do not need to provide attribution (credit) to the Stock Gallery or any contributing photographers. However, please do not take credit for the photos yourself, or credit any third party.
I’M A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER – CAN I USE YOUR PHOTOS TO CREATE GRAPHICS OR BLOG HEADERS FOR MY CLIENTS?
Yes, you may use the photos for this purpose; however, your clients cannot use the photos themselves for other projects and purposes, as that would be transferring your purchase to a third party, which is prohibited.
CAN I DOWNLOAD EVERY PHOTO IN THE GALLERY ALL AT ONCE?
In theory, yes, if you have a lot of free time (that would probably be better spent elsewhere!) and a LOT of available storage on your computer. Some of the images are up to 4000px and 300dpi, which takes up a ton of storage space. You are better served choosing the ones you really want to use and downloading them as needed. The Stock Gallery was designed to be an ongoing, ever-evolving resource for businesses as new photos are added and released regularly, so we hope you will remain a member as the Stock Gallery grows!
ARE YOUR PHOTOS MODEL RELEASED?
Yes, all photos containing a recognizable person must have a model release on file before it is included in the Stock Gallery.
I’M A PHOTOGRAPHER – CAN I SUBMIT MY WORK TO YOU FOR INCLUSION IN THE STOCK GALLERY?
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO HEAR BACK IF I AM ACCEPTED AS A PHOTO CONTRIBUTOR?
You will hear back whether you are accepted within 4 weeks. As we pride ourselves on curating a collection of only unique, high quality photos, we unfortunately cannot accept every photographer that applies.
HOW CAN I SEARCH THE STOCK GALLERY?
The Stock Gallery is fully searchable. Simply type what you are looking for by keyword into the search box and all related photos will be populated.
WHAT ARE THEMED COLLECTIONS AND HOW DO I USE THEM?
Themed collections are a cohesive collection of at least 20 photos all related to a specific theme. This makes the Stock Gallery unique in that you can find multiple photos that are cohesive with one another without having to spend countless hours searching for a series of photos that look like they go together but really don’t.
