    'Commercial Use' regarding the use of images online or offline is defined very broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the contextual use of the image.

    My fees are based on the following criteria:

  • Media – print, online, television, etc.
  • Distribution Size – viewing audience size
  • Exposure - regional, national, international
  • Length of Use – 1 month, 1 year, etc.
  • Prominence of Display – half page, full page, spread, front cover, back cover, website home page (online), etc.

  • Sample Use Requiring A License To Copyright:

  • A marketing campaign for a commercial entity
  • A fund-raising campaign for a not-for-profit organisation
  • A background image for a travel website
  • License to create an individual print for use in a private home

  • Please Note: The license may not give you all of the permissions necessary for your intended use. For example, other rights such as publicity, privacy, or moral rights may limit how you use the material. Please make sure that you will be allowed to use the images prior to purchasing the license.
