FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS:

Can anyone upload their travel photos to Charesse TravelPics?

In principle yes. First and foremost we want to address travel bloggers and (semi-)professional photographers as well as photo artists with Charesse TravelPics to upload their pictures. But in some of them there is a still unrecognized photo talent :-). So if you have nice travel photos, please upload them to Charesse TravelPics. Our team tries to select the most qualitative photographs with the help of professional photographers. At the same time we would also like to include as many photos of hobby photographers as possible in our database, so that you can find a nice mix of different photos in our database.

How are my uploaded photos at Charesse TravelPics protected against download/copy?

The editorial staff provides each photo on the website with the watermark of Charesse TravelPics. Thus your photos are protected from being used in any other context. If you don’t want a watermark or in case you have your own watermark you want us to use for your photos, just let us know in the upload process. We will be happy to take care of all your wishes.

What are the benefits of uploading pictures to Charesse TravelPics?

It increases the visibility of your work as a photographer and makes companies, galleries and editorial offices aware of your pictures.

You can link directly to the photos on your travel blog or website.

Also you support sustainable and green traveling to protect the beauty of our planet:

With every photo uploaded until 29.04.2020 you actively participate in our fundraising campaign for the WWF to preserve our environment and the wildlife of our beloved travel world: For each uploaded photo we will donate 5 cents to the Brazilian Rainforest Rescue Campaign!

In addition we value the idea of sharing. The ability to travel all the beautiful places in the world is limited and few people get to experience everything they want. We would like to provide the possibility to visit wonderful destinations virtually with our Visual Search Engine.

Is it possible to upload more than one photo for a travel destination?

Sure! Since we want to give our users as accurate a picture of a travel destination as possible, we like to upload a large number of photos for a region.

We see ourselves here as a kind of virtual travel provider for inspiration or just for dreaming.
