The images on these pages have been taken by serious photographers who take their copyrights seriously as well. Images may not be downloaded for any purpose, including personal use, without our permission and any unauthorized download constitutes an agreement and commitment on your part to pay the highest commercial usage value listed at the time of notice of the infringement for each image or $2500.00 per image downloaded, whichever is greater. In addition, you agree to pay any and all collection and/or legal fees that we may incur enforcing our copyright. Please note that worldwide exclusive rights to some images on this site are valued in excess of $20,000 so we are talking about real money.
We don’t mean to sound cranky but image theft is huge problem on the Internet and deprives working photographers of their ability to support their families.
