On Unsplash, millions of people are coming together to build the world’s open library of freely usable visuals.
In 2013, Unsplash launched as a Tumblr blog with 10 high-resolution photos that could be used for anything. Today, over 10 Unsplash photos are downloaded every second, double any other image platform.
We’re building a community where the principles of sharing and openness have taken the place of copyright and red tape. Instead of photos being hoarded and shut down, photos on Unsplash are given as fuel for creativity.
A photo featured on Unsplash is now seen more than the front page of The New York Times.
Our aim is to push the impact of photography further than ever before. Unsplash photography has led to more than 419 million creative acts enabling people from everywhere to create. You don’t need to know someone, or have an agent, or have a name to be great on Unsplash. We’re a place where creators meet their audience, where individuals become a community, and a source for creativity.
Unsplash is an ecosystem of digital products designed to support and enable creation. This means we spend most of our time building the highest quality library of usable images, figuring out how to spread the impact of photography further than ever before, and connecting that impact to new opportunity.
Our team is made up of people who enjoy making things people love. We designed our company in a way to get as much of the stuff that’s not the creative work out of your way, so you can do your best work.
We don’t believe in a top-down, shoulder-tapping, 9–5 type culture. At Unsplash, you have the autonomy to manage yourself. We don’t work set hours. We respect flow. We believe you should be able to structure your days for what makes you feel the most energized and creative.
If you want to work with us, all we want to see is a message from you. Please don’t send a resume. Instead, tell us who you are. Show us relevant things you’ve done that you’re excited about.
Unsplash is the world’s open creative community. It’s fueled by people who offer world-class photos freely for anyone to use, enabling everyone to create. Our community includes millions of creators from award-winning writers like Deepak Chopra to multi-platinum recording artists.
A photo featured on Unsplash is viewed more than the front page of the New York Times. At over 20 photos downloaded/second, Unsplash is now part of the creative process for more people than any other image media platform.
We see Unsplash as the platform supporting a movement that’s reinventing an industry run by the old guard and covered in red tape. What we’re building won’t just have an impact on photography, but the internet as a whole.
