Shot this for the cover of a magazine that was running it's major article on motherhood. I used sunlight coming through a glass door on the right side and a posterboard to reflect light on the left. Think I used a Canon 20D.
Hope you enjoy, Cheers

Hi, I was wondering if I can use this picture as a reference for a painting which I will be giving as a christmas gift. It will not be used professionally or commercially. I will credit you for the reference. I would also  like to post it here on deviant art.. When I am done, I can link it to you? Please let me know thanks.

Thanks for this photo - I have used it as a reference for a painting and have been asked by a magazine 'OurMagnet' whether they can use it on a meditation page. Is this ok with you? - I would obviously credit you as the reference source of the painting. As far as I can work out, the magazine is not for profit - it's edited by volunteers.
Here's a link to my painting: jackiewhall.deviantart.com/art…

I'm sorry but I have to say no as I do not have permission from the model for her likeness to be used in any commercial way.

Where are the prayers of the mothers,
Prayers so silently pled?
They're shining at midnight
Glowing in moonlight
Lighting our way ahead.

Hallo!
I have something to ask you.

My church is organizing a rapresentation of the Nativity (with real people, I mean).
I'm wondering if I could use this amazing picture in the poster I'm preparing to promote the event.

Even if I am a graphic designer I'm doing this work totally for free, as usual, and also the event is no-profit.

I'm asking to you because I love this photo and I don't have the chance to make one like this by myself.

Thank you for your attantion and sorry for my bad english.

this is divine...would love to see more of your photography skills. I am holding a small exhibition of my religious works...I would like to paint some new work and would really love to include a painting from this photo. I would like to sell the original painting and offer prints and such from my painting at my online sites. I would, of course, credit you for the original photo. Any other requirements please let me know when you respond as to whether I may have permission to paint from this image?

God bless you

Yes and no. I don't mind you painting from the photo for yourself but I don't have permission from the model to allow others to use her likeness for show or profit.
