Commonly Asked Questions

Do I have to list your name somewhere if I use your photo?

No, I do not require you to give credit to the photographer if you use an image from DavesFreePhotos. You are welcome to, but it is not required.

I would like to use an image for a magazine, a blog post, a webpage, and a book cover. So I am able to use the images for these purposes, even if they are commercial?

Yes, you may use the images for commercial, personal and non-profit uses.

Do you have model releases for all the photos on

I have model releases for the vast majority of the images of people on the site. Sometimes there was a language barrier that prohibited me from getting a signed model release and I only had a signaled or verbal agreement. If you want confirmation, please email me identifying which photo you are interested in using and I can confirm that I have a model release for a particular image.

If you believe you are in a photo without your permission, please contact me and I will remove it immediately.
