When you purchase photographs you are purchasing the actual prints and we retain the copyrights. This means you may not legally have copies made without our permission. The following is a list of how and when we release the copyrights:
If you purchase the digital files you receive all copyrights. The price for the files will vary depending upon the type of session.
We do not make calendars, t-shirts, mugs, snow globes, jigsaw puzzles and similar items. If you wish to have items made from your pictures that are not on our reorder form we will grant you a limited copyright release for that purpose.
We do not make greeting cards. We will grant you a limited copyright release for that purpose.
If you wish to use one of our pictures for a church directory, yearbook or similar use we will always give permission.
To get a written copyright release mailed to you, please write, phone or email us. We will need to know when and where the pictures were taken and a brief description of the subject or subjects. As an example: a three year old girl in a pink dress photographed at a Children's Palace Preschool in
Pompey's Pillar, Montana, September 2002.
This is our official policy and may be considered permission to reproduce our work under the exact conditions described above.
