Can your stock be used for book covers?

Hello! I was wondering where selling original artworks which use your stock as reference fall? I see that prints are permitted, and commercial work is not, so I wanted to be sure to clarify that (especially since I absolutely fell in love with your llama ... =) )

Oooh I was going to ask the same thing. A lot of members ask that their stock not be used in commercial work. When the term commercial is used, some mean things like a big media company using the image as a cd cover etc. Most are okay with prints etc. You both cleared up any questions that I had. theperian I look forward to seeing your finished product. :)

Hello there,

I am fine with you using my photos as a reference point.  I do not mind my photos being used in commercial projects, as long as it doesn't fall into any of the May Not categories, which would mostly be the first point I think and, of course, you would need to ask my permission first.

If you were thinking of referencing my work in a commercial project, then I hereby give my permission.  If you just wished to use it just as reference with no commercial project, then feel free to go ahead as well.

I hope that helps, but feel free to contact me if you want anything else clarified and, of course, I would love to see what you do.

:)

Thank you very much! A few years ago, I did a bit of an ACEO project (all of the cards made are here, to give you an example: Drawn to Help ACEOs ) and then gave a portion of the proceeds to help wildlife, as well as literacy and social programmes. I was thinking of doing something similar this year. Your beautiful reference photos will be a great help - thank you!

The pictures are beautiful and such worthy projects.  I hope my pictures help you in your current project and I will, of course, be eager to see anything you do. :)
