Rules and Guidelines

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 26, 2011, 8:31 PM
last updated: october 10, 2014

BASIC GUIDELINES

  • • By downloading my imagery to any computer or device it does not mean you own the images, 
  • and it does not give you permission to redistribute or re-upload my photo files.
  • • Do not upload my imagery on other stock websites 'as is' or manipulated in any way.
  • • Do not upload my imagery on wallpaper websites 'as is' or slightly altered.
  • • And then of course do not download my imagery with the intention of claiming them as your own.

Common Usages

  • • Photo-manipulations (as well as backgrounds for client photos)
  • • Photoshop Action previews
  • • Photo edit practice (credit required)
  • • Paintings (digital matte, canvas, oil, etc.)
  • • Fanart 
  • • Drawing references
  • • Illustration for poem, story, or article*
  • • Presentations for a school project or assignment
  • • Wallpapers that do not resemble the original image
  • • Digital Business card templates*
  • • Website templates *
  • • CD Covers
  • • Book Covers
  • • Tutorials
*photos are okay to be used 'as is' as long as credit is provided


Commercial Usage


Basically everything mentioned above can be considered commercial as well. But this is aimed mostly toward digital artists who find my images to use in their photo-manipulated artworks, where my images are mixed with multiple images so that it does not resemble the original shot, or if it includes a 3D design with some creative typography, that's fine too!

In third-party situations, (where somebody finds my personal stock photos with underlying intentions of providing that one image to someone else), I should be contacted by the group or individual that needs the image, especially if it's only going to be altered slightly, or not enough to make it completely different than the original; or if it's to remain as the original shot itself; and it does not mean that a fee will apply. I just don't want my personal stock photography to be seen as a way of making basic edits with the intention of selling it to a band or author to use. Make it creative or let me, the photographer, be contacted by the one who wishes to use my image on its own, with or without any basic alternations or adjustments.


Credit

I would appreciate credit, however, I understand that there are situations where you honestly cannot credit at all. But if it can be done, do eeeet!


Premades

I do not allow premades with my images. I prefer my imagery to be used from scratch and not manipulated into backgrounds that will be distributed under another set of guidelines or rules. 

Prints

You may print and sell your manipulated artwork that uses my stock. But I do not allow prints if you are allowing people to buy my photo 'as is' or altered with textures/colors while it still looks very close to the original shot. Manipulated with other images is fine, whether it's digital, drawn, or painted.

Tutorials

You may use my stock images in a tutorial in blog format, pdf format, video format, etc., but please do not upload or redistribute the original stock file(s). I prefer my photos being downloaded directly from my site, even if you need to contact me so that I can upload the individual file and provide you the exclusive link.
