When it came time to refresh our site, the team at Dahlgren decided it should include beautiful photos. We could have easily used the same approach as every other brand and paid models to stand in pretty places and look perfect—certainly that seems to work for everyone else. But at Dahlgren, we’ve never really felt much like “everyone else”. In fact, we’ve spent almost 40 years actively working to be different—to offer more effective performance and comfort than any other brand. So why would we start acting like “everyone else” now?
What’s more, we’ve always worked to be real—to show that we are a real, family run business made up of very real people. We are not just a monolithic corporation and you are not just a monolithic demographic—you are real individuals with real lives, real adventures, and deserve real performance—not just the stuff of professional models and careful lighting and composition.
The photos you see on the header of our site are not the result of professional photo shoots, but images taken by real, every day people during their adventures around home and from exotic, far flung locations. These are photos of the real life testing that Dahlgren goes through every day and we are honored by your support and the sharing of your wonderful experience with Dahlgren socks.
Do you have a photo of a Dahlgren adventure you’d like to share? We love photos of the extraordinary and the ordinary—wherever you enjoy the real performance of Dahlgren. What’s more, we will thank the owners of any images we use with a pair of socks on us!
Here are the details:
Photos need to be a minimum resolution of 1920x1080, 300 dpi.
Landscape orientation is preferred.
Photos showing your Dahlgrens are most ideal, but we're also open to shots of adventures taken with your Dahlgrens.
Please do not include your name directly on the photo. We will “burn” your name and the location on the image in order to ensure proper crediting of the work.
By submitting an image, you grant us your permission to display your photo, credited to you, on our home page. We will only use these photos for this purpose, on the landing page of our site. We will not use them in ads, on packaging, or other uses without first notifying you and receiving your permission—we absolutely respect your rights to your work and your right to know exactly how it will be used.
Please note, we can only use photos suitable for this purpose. Poor resolution, inappropriate subject matter, etc may result in the rejection of your submission.
By submitting a photo, you warrant that you own full rights to the image and any individuals included in the image have granted permission for this use. We will investigate any reports of photos being used without permission and reserve the right to remove any images improperly submitted.
Dahlgren socks are generally available in 4 sizes: S, M, L, XL. S and M cover the majority of womens size ranges while L and XL cover mens. However, we do offer gender neutral colors in some styles to cover any overlap that may exist.
