My name is Jim. I began this site in 2001 after having trouble finding quality, public domain photos online to use in my designs.
People just seemed interested in flaunting their portfolios or charging absurd amounts of money to license a photograph. I bought a
camera and bothered my photographer friends until I had a grasp on taking photos. I shot what I needed, and some extras. Eventually, I had a
collection of photos going to waste so I figured I'd put them online for other people to use with no strings attached.
Over the past decade, Unprofound has grown into a global collaboration of photographers. A small group of people
take photos for the site and I've invited others to join in, including you. Hopefully, it will grow into a useful resource for designers everywhere. It is 100% non-profit,
and there are no ads here - but if you like what I'm doing and feel the need to donate for server/bandwidth costs, there's a button at the bottom of the page.
Thanks for showing interest in this.
