The Reasons Why Unsplash is Cancer for Photographers

In Pro Camera Reviews, we recently discussed why Unsplash is so terrible.

If you’ve read this site for a while, then you know and understand our hate for Unsplash. From their way of blindsiding photographers to their lack of ethics–the list can go on and on. And we’ve recently taken to discussing it a bit more in-depth.

Why Unsplash is Cancer for Photographers” in This Episode

Why Unsplash is Cancer for Photographers: Unsplash has been a cancer in the photography industry for a few years now. If you’re unfamiliar with them, they trick photographers into uploading their images under the guise of photo competitions only to take all image rights. Unsplash partners with multi-billion dollar companies. These companies can then use the images royalty-free with no need to credit the photographer. More and more photography based companies and websites, which are supposedly for photographers, continue to use and partner with Unsplash. Join us as we discuss why Unsplash is doing more harm than good in our industry, and learn how to protect your work.
