IF YOU USE OUR PHOTOS, PLEASE GIVE CREDIT

(credit: New York Street Food)

You may have noticed over the past couple of weeks that we have been putting a credit on each of the photos used on New York Street Food.

We apologize if this is annoying or distracting, but as street food gets more and more popular, people have been using our photos without giving any credit, as if it was their photo.

This usually happens a few times a month (that we know of), and it seems to be getting worse. At this point, we have a pretty significant photo library, with 2.5 years of daily street food lunches, many desserts, and lots of vendor carts & trucks.

When we eat someone’s food, we give them the appropriate credit. If you’re a vendor and want to use one of our photos, all we ask is the same courtesy in return. A photo is a product of our hard work, just as your food is the product of your hard work. A simple credit such as “photo courtesy of New York Street Food” or something similar is appreciated.

If you are not a vendor and would like to use one of our photos, please ask first. We’re reasonable people. Please email perry@newyorkstreetfood with your request.

  1. Why would you give credit to yourselves, wouldn’t you only give credit to someone else if you use their photo. If it is on your site and no creidt I think 100% of people would take that as you took the picture. I guess doesn’t really matter but seems redundant

  2. I would agree with you if people did not continue to use my photos without credit. It may look redundant, but if someone copies the photo, they will be reminded it’s not theirs to use without asking first.
