I have taken the photos in my account over the years, many of celebrities. I make these photos freely available without charge under creative commons for anyone to use for any purpose, for educational purposes, because of their historical value. The same goes for my photos of everyday life as photographed in public areas - "street photography" is the term - snapshots which capture the reality of the world around us. Tip: google "Vivian Maier" for examples of superb street photography of the past (1926-2009).


If you are seen in one of my photos and don't want to be, please contact me: alanlight9@gmail.com


Please note that I do not generally sign photo release forms because all of my photos are set to Creative Commons which already gives you permission to use my photographs anywhere you wish. No extra permission needed. Please credit "Photo by Alan Light" if you can. Thanks.
