Need a Photo to Reference for an Art Project?

Using someone else’s photo as a reference for your art without permission is copyright infringement! But don’t worry- I’ve got you covered!  I have a stash of high resolution photos available on Flickr ( with an “Attribution Creative Commons” License. This means you’re welcome (and encouraged) to use my photos to create new works of art for fun or for sale, as long as you let people know where the original photo came from. When you use one of my photos, you need to include something like “Original photo by Julie Abels” or “Photo Credit: Julie Abels” to be legit. If you’re online, please also tag me or link to my website: I’d love to see all the beautiful things you make from my photos, so let me know!
