Free reference photos

Copyright free photos for artists use

On this website in addition to my own blog I will also be adding information about other websites which are good resources artists. My students are often looking for copyright  free photos that they can use as inspiration for their own work as not everyone has the time, money or mobility to get out there and take their own.

You will find on the main menu of this site a link to my latest page which lists a number of very good websites that provide copyright free photographs for artists. Usually there are some restrictions (most often about not re-posting the original photo) so you should read the relevant terms and conditions posted on each site before downloading their images.

I have tried to select sites that are very predominantly free in their offerings, if you know of any more please contact me through the Contacts page.

Happy painting,
