Hey you guys!


I wanted to ask for a big favor! I’m enrolled in a Fashion Class and as a class project we have to create a magazine. This magazine has 4 departments (Fashion, Beauty and Health, Entertainment, Culture/Travel) I am in the Culture department. Part of our job is to make fashion spreads about various countries and their culture.




I have never been to the places we have chosen and I was wondering if you guy can help me with pictures. I can’t go on Google or any other places to get pictures there because it is unethical. If you guys can share pictures you have taken, it would be a huge help. And if you decided to help me out, can I have your permission to say that those pictures are my own to be able to use them in our magazine.


This is a fictional magazine as it is made by our fashion class.


So if you decide to help me here are the places I need pictures for: Greece, Brazil, Russia, and Egypt


The picture can be landscape, historical buildings, people in tradtitional clothes… any pictures you would like to share with me.





email them to me at [email protected]

What do you mean searching the internet is unethical? You mean you wouldn't have permissionzz to legally use them, right?


I'm pretty sure we might have a Brazilian lurking around here but not confident, you might have to try elsewhere. It's gonna be hard to get those countries though but I don't think Egypt and Greece would be too hard to get your hands on, lots of people holiday there, especially Greece.

What about free fully licensed stock photos like from morguefile? That's what real magazines do. They can't send a photographer to Brazil for one or two shots for the next issue, so they contact a stock photo service instead, which will have millions of photos in it's archives to use.


For us mere students who can't afford licensing fees, there are free non-commercial stock photo sources. That's what we were always encouraged to use in our projects when I studied graphic design. There is nothing unethical about it as long as you credit the real photographer- the permission is in the terms of use or user license. You could always print out a copy of the user license if someone was going to have a problem with even that.

But if you still insist on having ones from users on here only, here are a few I took in Greece two summers ago (you can pick and chose, and I don't care if you use them without credit!):
















:stunned: those are some great pictures
