Charity photo bank InCommon has launched this week, with 100 per cent of all profits made from user fees donated to a charity which uses photography to achieve social change.

Created by Richard and Michele Steckel, joint founders of registered US charity Milestones Project, the site contains more than 70,000 images featuring people aged from one to a hundred, and nature shots from skies to butterflies and trees to seas.

Donated royalty free by professional and amateur photographers, the pictures can then be used by businesses and individuals for a fee.

Steckel said:“This is the beginning of a growing resource. We invite individuals, celebrities, charities, businesses and governments to donate images and to use them on their websites and publications.

“Businesses will be keen to use the images to complement their CSR or community programmes. Meanwhile, organisations such as governments and other charities can now source relevant images in a way that also does some good.”
