    1. Me and my friend are amateur photographers (although we do some paid work every now and then) and we have created this website


      We believe in free culture and we are going to post all our photos in full resolution on our website and can be used under following creative commons license.

      That means you can
      remix, transform, and build upon the material
      for any purpose, even commercially.
      100% free of cost.

      We have just started this project and within months there will be thousands of photos available.
      If you like our work and want to promote free culture then please spread the word to everyone who might want to build upon our work.
      If everything goes right then our plan is to recruit more like minded photographers and make this site really rich with 100% free stock photos
      Thank you for supporting us

      Kind regards,
