About GeographyPhotos

Started in 2003 as a site to provide images for education Geography Photos offers very inexpensive images and prints for personal and education use.  In addition, Rights Managed Stock images available for both editorial and commercial use.

The fees for publishers depend on the use and can be found using the online calculator. Image licences can be purchased online allowing for immediate image download. 

The site is owned by Ian Murray, a former geography teacher, author, and adviser, who is now a freelance photographer and who owns the copyright of all the photos.

Recognition of the value of the collection to geography education was given through a Geographical Association award in 2005.  Geography Photos was a UK government approved supplier of digital content to schools in the Curriculum Online initiative between 2006-2008. 

Images from the site are distributed to a number of global stock photo agencies including Getty Images, Alamy ( all of the images on this site), Agefotostock and a large network of distributors.
