We do our best to credit our image sources and other sources of information. Here is more information on where we source images from and other information on our site.
We license and use pictures throughout our site to illustrate the content and give you more perspective on the text and topic. These are the common places we find and source images:
Our own images
We produce our own pictures when we travel and these will normally be mentioned as mikecleggphotography, @mikecleggphoto, or www.travelanddestinations.com. Images that we take ourselves can also licensed through stock agencies such as Shutterstock, and many of can be purchased for prints.
Stock photo agencies
We have used various websites/agencies to license a large amount of photographs for use on our website. Although it would be nice to have images from our authors, as we’re quite picky about our imagery that’s not always possible. Here are the agencies that we’ve licenced images from:
Free download sites
These websites allow contributors/photographers to upload images that people can then use for free. We do however credit the website and photographer on most images that we use – but only where the design fits. Should you find an image that shouldn’t have been available on these free sites then please let us know and we’ll remove it as soon as possible.
Images used in advertisements
We show advertisements on our site, such as for tours and other products and services. These can often include images which will be pulled automatically into our site. The license and use of those photographs would have been obtained by the advertiser. If you have any concerns related to said image then please reach out to the advertising brand.
We have occasionally used images from other websites on a Creative Commons license and where it has stated that this usage is allowed. These websites include:
Why do we use stock images?
Mike Clegg who created TravelAndDestinations and runs this website is a keen Travel Photographer but also quite picky with which images are used. Therefore we don’t ask our writers to supply images as we’d rather source and pick them ourselves based on the style that we like to have throughout our site.
Reporting an issue with images
If you suspect we’ve made a mistake with any images on our site please let us know and we’ll try and rectify the issue as soon as possible.
A few websites that we have used to obtain information include:
- Official tourism websites – we will normally include links to these websites where appropriate
- BBC Travel
We use freelance writers for many of our articles who research and create the content. Before publishing we fact check as best we can to ensure the accuracy of information. If you find any errors in content please let us know.
