How do I obtain the rights to use an image?

If you are interested in using one or more of Sean's images in your project, a price based on the specifics of your use will be determined. When the usage fee is paid you will be granted a license that will outline how you may use the image and for how long. You then have the legal right to use the image as outlined in the usage agreement.

Greenspring Sunset lllWhat is Stock Photography?

Stock photography is the business of providing a license, or "Rights", for the specific use of an existing image for use as an illustration in a specific project. Stock photography is commonly used for advertising, brochures, books, calendars, greeting cards, magazines, and other forms of publications, including the Internet. The word "Rights" refers to the fact that these images are Sean Bagshaw's intellectual property and subject to Copyright Laws. Sean's image may not be used, published or transfered without permission. The use of Stock Photography, or more specifically, the granting of a usage license, typically involves the payment of a use fee and a photographer's credit line.

What is the advantage of using Stock Photography?

Licensed stock photography offers a way to obtain the use of existing images without also incuring the high cost of hiring a photographer to create new images from scratch. The photographer incurs the costs of creating the images and recovers those costs by licensing images repeatedly over a period of time. 

How much does it cost to use pictures as Stock Photography?

Fees to use an image vary greatly, and can range from $50.00 to thousands of dollars. Many factors can influence the usage fee for a photograph. The type of use is foremost. For example, the image could be used for a local small business website, or it could be part of a national advertising campaign. The size the photo will be published, how long it will be used, how many copies will be made, areas of distribution, and degree of exclusivity are all factors that effect how much an image will cost to use.
