While I appreciate your business, and welcome your praises by sharing the photos I’ve taken on social media, I would like to ask you not to alter the images, when posting anywhere ONLINE. Altering of images for online use is against my copyright policies.
About the Copyright:
The digital images that I provides you with has a copyright, which means the I have the option to use those photos to market my work and services anytime in the future. I are however also respectful of my clients so if there are any images that you would prefer to keep private, it’s best to let me know about it ahead of time so that I can honor your wishes.
I’m not able to provide you with the original files or raw images. All images given to each client have been cropped and have been edited and finalized for optimal printing. If you do require further touch ups or changes, we would need to provide you with a quote.
What is considered photo altering?
- Adding filters or doctoring of photos in Photoshop
- Removing our logo or studio name
- Color correcting, including transitions from color to black and white
- Clipping people or objects out of the original shot
Why do I ask this? Sometimes customers change an image that is associated with my studio, which is a representation of my work. When I present you with final images, those images have already been through the adjustment phase of my editing process. When these images are altered, the results are sometimes not relative to my original work and can be mistaken for mine. I greatly appreciate your loyalty and cooperation i protecting my brand in this matter.
If you have a specific image that you would like edited a certain way, please contact me directly and I would be happy to give you a quote to do so.
