Regarding image credits/rights...

I spend countless hours doing research for this website, and a huge part of that is searching for photos. I make every effort to obtain them directly from the source, and will always credit the source when I can reliably determine what the source is. People crop photos and remove watermarks/add their own watermarks all the time, which can make this pretty difficult. Nevertheless, I try to operate as professionally as I'm able. You'll find that I embed images from stock photography websites from time to time (typically using Getty Images' own embedding tool, or linking to images from royalty-free sources like Wikimedia Commons), and I've even purchased licenses for some of the photos I use on the site.

With all that being said, if you find that I'm using an image that you either took personally or own the rights to in an inappropriate manner, PLEASE contact me at the email address below. I'll happily provide credit where credit is due, and/or compensation for licensing when able (keep in mind, I literally make zero dollars from this website!), or remove photos if there's no other solution. I have a hand in numerous creative projects of my own that are largely driven by promotion and/or passive income, so screwing photographers out of recognition/money is the LAST thing I'd ever want to do.
