Please do not steal my images – it costs me lots of money to purchase the equipment I used to create them, to travel to the various locations, and to maintain them online – as well as the time invested.
The following are the regular terms and conditions of my image copyrights:
I routinely release the images for unlimited use, which includes unlimited reproduction rights. See our agreement or my copyright release given to you at the time of the photography.
Licensed per our negotiated agreement for specific use.
Simple Photo CDs
Licensed for unlimited personal use. The images cannot be sold or distributed, but can be duplicated on any electronic media device you own. The images may not be used for commercial use. None of the photos on any Simple Photo CD can be sold, published or used in anyway to produce a sale, profit, or otherwise printed or published without my written consent. Please respect this simple restriction as I have spent hundreds of hours and dollars to get to the places and photograph them over the years and make them available to you at a low, reasonable price.
Prints & Portraits
Licensed as prints or portraits and may not be duplicated or copied.
If you have any questions about the terms and conditions of the copyright, please contact me.
