Brandon Sun Photo Release

Brandon Sun: Share your photos

The Brandon Sun wants to see your photos! We invite you to share your images with us and with our readers.


Please include your full name and an email address where we can contact you, and a short description of the image. If we can’t contact you or don’t know who, what, we may not be able to use your photos – and we might want more information from you about them.

Send us photos as large as you can (up to 2 MB per photo). We can crop or reduce large photos, but it’s more difficult to work with small photos. The photo should not have the time and date embedded by the camera visible on the image. Our normal procedure when we use submitted photos is to give the photographer a credit in this format: Photo: Joe B. Smith. If you do not wish a photo credit, please indicate that in the notes field.

We cannot guarantee that your photo will be used, and we cannot guarantee that we will notify you if your photo is used.
