Finding your pictures in Forbes, HBR, Mashable, and even in the wild on billboards is awesome. Receiving donations and thank-yous from all over the world is heart-warming. It makes the Pexels community stand out!

I have more than 13 000 000 views and 55 000 downloads of my photos on Pexels. I'm not a pro photographer, just an amateur but seeing this stats... It just inspires me more than anything.
