If you wish to use any of my photos on your own blog, website or similar, most of them (unless otherwise mentioned) are available under the creative commons license. To read about the licence in more detail, see the link at the bottom.
What it means, in a nutshell, is that you’re free to use my work as long as you attribute me as the artist and don’t use it commercially. If you want to print one of my photos to hang on your wall, go right ahead, I’ll be honoured. If you print one of my photos and try to sell that print to someone, or if you use one of my photos to promote a product, or in any other way try to make money from it, that’s a no no. For those uses you’ll have to contact me and make the appropriate arrangements to license that particular photo commercially.
If you want a high resolution copy of one of my photos they’re usually available for download (completely free, of course) from my flickr. Or you can just contact me and I’ll send you a copy if you can’t find what you’re looking for. If you would like to support my passion by actually paying for downloads or prints, you can do so (for some of them) over at my store on 500px. Let me know if one of your favourites is missing there and I’ll see what I can do.
By making my work available under the creative commons license I hope to encourage more open sharing from the photographic community. There’s a host of incredibly talented people out there whose work deserves to be seen – seen properly, in high resolution and without watermarks, at least I know that’s how I want people to enjoy my work. If you’re good enough, people will want to see more of you and they’ll be willing to pay for it. I won’t start a debate here but I wanted to give people an explanation to why I choose to share like this and perhaps give them something to think about. For now, I just hope the sharing of my work can bring you some enjoyment.
