Stock

I represent my own stock and can work with you to come up with a solution for all your licensing interests. All of the images on my website are available for editorial use, advertising, presentations, websites, etc. under a rights-managed license. Even if you don't see the exact image you are looking for on this site, I have thousands more, so feel free to contact me with specific requests.

Stock Photography - Defined

Stock photographs are images of nature, landmarks, events, people, or virtually any other subject that are available - for a nominal fee - for use in commercial design purposes. The photographer or distributor normally retains ownership of the images and the commercial designer has some specific and limited usage of the images. Stock photography is a relatively low cost means by which designers can obtain professional quality photos without the costs and time associated with hiring a photographer directly..

Rights Managed (RM) Stock Images - Defined.

The simplest way to think of Rights-Managed images are as "rented" images: the user "rents", through purchase of a license, a specific image for a specific purpose and at a negotiated price. Factors that influence the negotiated price include the nature of the intended use, the duration of the use, geographic distribution of the use, size of reproduction of the image, medium type, and the degree of exclusivity required. Once you negotiate a fee for your specific use, any other use of the image is subject to an additional fee.
