No permission for publication or distribution of photos via digital or print is granted without prior written permission. All images are protected under Copyright laws; Violators will be prosecuted.
The following are the standard fees for the uses of our photos, and some clear categories of common usages: Written permission in advance from our office is required for any and all usage.
Purchasing prints or products is separate from purchasing additional usage permission, where applicable.
PERSONAL USAGE means you can have and enjoy displaying the physical print(s) ordered. You may take a photo (NOT SCAN) of the print delivered to use photos on your "personal" web site if a 5" X 7" or larger of that photo has been purchased or if you have purchased one of the "Digital file for web- personal usage only" items from the shopping cart; "PERSONAL" WEBSITE INCLUDES PERSONAL FACEBOOK PROFILES AND SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES. So, yes, you may post and share with your "friends" purchased 5x7" or larger prints, or purchased digital files for personal usage on instagram, facebook, etc. for your personal use.
PRINT USAGE: The following pricing and conditions are for print usage.
PERSONAL FOR SALE ADS of individual horses: If it is an ad that is a horse for sale by owner, with the owner as the contact person, with no agent, business or trainer involved, the only requirement is that you must purchase a 5" X 7" or larger of the photo, OR Digital file for personal usage only at the time of specific permission request. If a usage in any way mentions or promotes the agent, sales business, trainer, event or facility, or invites customers to inquire about other horses, then the ad falls into the Promotional / Commercial category and a usage fee is due.
PROMOTIONAL / COMMERCIAL USAGE TO BE USED IN PRINT
Photos for your organization, business, farm, event, training business, sales business or stallion, require a usage fee. This fee is $250.00 per image, per usage or ad run (NOTE: multiple insertions of the same ad or multiple photos are negotiated for package rates, on a case by case basis.) This includes PR USAGE - when it is not editorial usage, but it is PR, it requires purchasing this usage, and then we deliver the image(s) with the written release. No publication or distribution of photos via digital or print without prior written permission. Again, remember, I make my living from the reproductions of my work. ;)
CONGRATULATORY ADS require the purchase of a 5" X 7" or larger of the photo you are using at the time of specific permission request. Congratulatory Ads are defined as purely a congratulations to an individual or horse on a certain achievement. If the ad mentions a trainer, coach, business, facility or product used, or invites customers to inquire, then it is considered a Promotional / Commercial Ad and a usage fee is due.
YEAR-END AWARDS require the purchase of a 5" X 7" or larger of the photo you are using at the time of specific permission request.
CORPORATE ADS which include one of our photos are priced starting at $500.00.
DIGITAL USAGE: The purchase of the instant download of the Medium Digital File PERSONAL USAGE PLUS, includes usage permission for barn websites, barn social media pages and horse for sale websites. This does NOT apply or extend to Sponsors or Corporate usage, and DOES NOT GIVE ANY PRINT PERMISSIONS. [For social media platforms like Instagram, we suggest you use an app (like SquareFit App, for example) that adds a boarder , to not crop or distort the image to fit the dimensions that platforms like instagram forces on uploads. ANY cropping or zooming will distort the digital files delivered, causing them to be significantly more pixelated.]
WEBSITE USAGE Usage fees for individual photos on business / farm / club / trainer websites (or social media profiles) are priced starting at $100.00 per photo, per usage. Multiple photos and multiple websites will be given a discount. The purchase of the Medium Digital File - PERSONAL USAGE PLUS item includes usage permission for barn/trainer websites, barn / trainer social media pages and horse for sale websites.
