How does [写真提供] mean what it "Photo Provided"

I came across “写真提供” which seems to mean “Photo Provided” - sort of like saying it is copyrighted or something like that. What I’m not understanding is how the meanings of the individual kanji produce that meaning. Can anybody enlighten me?

In this case it seems to mean that because:

写真 = Photograph
+
提供 = 1. offer; tender; providing; supplying; making available; donating (blood, organs, etc.)​

Sometimes a combination of words create a certain expression that doesn’t seem to make sense at first, I guess it depends on the context.
