UsageI occasionally get emails from people wanting to use one or more of the photos on these pages for some purpose or other, usually web use or occasionally publication.
This page details what is allowed, and what isn't.
The photos on these pages fall into three categories;
Photos in the first category may be used for non-commercial projects only, in any media, subject to the requirements below. The non-commercial restriction is due to the institutions in questions requiring a permit for commercial photography, and I didn't have one.
Photos in the second category may be used for commercial or non-commercial projects, in any media, subject to the requirements below.
Photos in the third category may not be used.
Photos in the first and second categories are subject to the following requirements of use;
If your use of the photo is not allowed within these restrictions, then there is no fee that you could pay that would allow their use.
If you are allowed to use the photo, then you can do whatever you want with it, subject to the restrictions above. This would include, for example, using parts of the photo, or using the photo after it has been through some serious image processing etc.
In some cases, the photos available on this site have undergone some colour or contrast correction before being uploaded. If you want to use a photo, and would prefer to use the original jpg from the camera, contact me by email.
For anything prior to 2005, the resolution you see on the site is usually direct from the camera. There is no higher resolution image. From 2005 onwards, I have a new camera, with higher resolution and the images posted here are half size (in each dimension, i.e. one quarter the number of pixels). The original jpg from the camera is available on request, assuming you meet the requirements above. Raw or TIFF images are not usually available.
