WHAT IS NAPS?
We are a new breed of stock photography website that focuses on beautiful photos (no boring boardrooms!) that you can use without a credit. All of our images are original, and we use a growing portion of profits to plant trees. Members can even request photos that they need. Read more about our founding and goals here.
HOW DOES NAPS WORK?
We hire photographers to take stunning images, and then members can use them almost however they like on websites, blogs, YouTube videos, or print.
WHAT IS THE ‘REQUEST A PHOTO’ FEATURE?
Paying members of NAPS can request a photo if they can’t find it on the site. If it’s easy to do, we’ll take it for you! If it needs some extra setup or travel time we will email you with an affordable quote.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH YOUR PHOTOS?
Use them on your website, blog, YouTube video, or social media accounts without adding a credit or link. You can print them out for posters or advertisements, or use them as a background in your designs or branding.
WHAT CAN’T I DO WITH YOUR PHOTOS?
Don’t claim them as your own, sell them, add them to another stock photography website, or use them on any material related to adult topics, meat, gambling, fossil fuels, or antivax. You also may not use them for any illegal activity or something that hurts another. If the photo you’re using contains a human being, that photo must be used in a positive light and can’t be used to endorse a product without permission. Keep it happy!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
We have a special launch discount of $49.99 USD per year for the first 100 founding members. This will renew automatically through PayPal one year after the first purchase. Non-founding members will pay $89.99 USD per year.
CAN I BUY A PHOTO SO NO ONE ELSE CAN USE IT?
Sure! Why not. Just contact us on notanotherphotosite [at] gmail [dot] com and we can discuss a fair price and also do a quick check that no one else is using it.
CAN I CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION?
Yes! You can cancel anytime by logging in to your PayPal account and following these instructions.
IF I CANCEL, CAN I STILL USE THE PHOTOS I DOWNLOADED?
You are free to use any photos that you uploaded to your site during the term of your subscription. We’re not going to make you go back and delete all the photos from your site! But you may not download or upload any additional photos once you’ve cancelled.
CAN I GET YOUR IMAGES IN LARGE AND/OR RAW FORMAT?
Absolutely. We shoot all our photos in RAW/JPEG but we only upload medium sized JPEGS. If you need a bigger photo or the RAW version so you can edit it then just shoot us an email and we’ll find it.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU ADD NEW PHOTOS TO THE GALLERY?
We try to add a new batch of photos every two weeks, but sometimes it will be more, sometimes a little bit less if it is a complicated theme.
WHAT PERCENTAGE OF PROFITS ACTUALLY PLANTS TREES?
Initially we will contribute 5% of profits towards our tree planting project which involves purchasing damaged land to protect and then reforest. As the business grows, moves through the launch phase and can support itself, our aim is to build this percentage up to 50% of total revenue and make it a core part of the company’s mission. We are very clear that this is a for-profit business as we believe this is the best way to support and expand the cause, and provide salaries, marketing and all the required expenses needed for meaningful growth. We don’t want to rely on handouts but rather build a business that helps the environment as part of the business model itself.
