Always looking for legal- and free-to-use photography, we’ve previously examined sources of free stock photos and photography on Flickr that are licensed for free usage. Here’s a new source of “free for commercial use” called, appropriately enough, FFCU.
FFCU is a project of photographer Markus Spiske from the German city of Erlangen. Spiske labels all images under Creative Commons Zero (CC0) or public domain. In other words, Spiske has made the photos completely free to use for any legal purpose.
The collection already contains 1,000 images sorted by topics, and displayed in grid overviews. One click on the photo preview opens the respective image’s detail page. Here, you’ll receive some background information on the picture.
The project is another example of how photographers are using sampling approaches as a means to raise the visibility of their work in order to build up their commercial projects.
While Spiske does not require an attribution link back to FFCU, we’re happy to do that now.
