About Geography Photos

Geography Photos started in 2003 as a site to provide images for education. Rights Managed Stock images are available for both editorial and commercial use.

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 ( with the exception of a small number of public domain images).

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  and a large network of distributors. 
A selection of images is available for education use via subscription to Britannica ImageQuest.
