United States
One of my greatest joys is seeing new and talented artists & photomanipulators use my stock photos in fantastic works of art. I also love photos of reenactors and roleplayers in historical costume. To this end, I travel all over my little state photographing these wonderful people, and sometimes do a little modeling of my own.

I try to make my stock images as accessible as possible to artists of all stripes, within legal restrictions. I CANNOT therefore give permission for unrestricted use (profit and otherwise) for images of those persons from whom I do not have model releases. I've explained this in my Journal.

Aside from that one restriction, you will find that:

1) I NEVER password protect my images
2) I NEVER post "exclusive" stock for only certain persons
3) I NEVER charge a fee for the use of my images
4) I NEVER watermark my images! (really, what's the point of posting stock if you're going to watermark it?)

So enjoy! And, of course, I welcome positive feedback!

Stock Rules

Tue Jun 10, 2008, 2:22 AM
Some clarification and simplification...

I decided to simplify and clarify my stock rules by separating my stock galleries into two separate groups: UNRESTRICTED STOCK and RESTRICTED STOCK.

UNRESTRICTED STOCK is basically self explanatory.  The pics designated unrestricted are either of myself or friends who are fully willing to have their pics posted as stock, or of animals or inanimate objects.  Use them however you like, for reference or photomanipulations, on DeviantArt or your personal website, even for profit, if you like.  All I ask is that you let me see what you've done.  The following galleries are UNRESTRICTED STOCK:

Female Gunslinger
Higgins Armory
Beardsley Zoo
Plimoth Buildings
Wampanoag Buildings
Wild West Town

RESTRICTED STOCK is usually of historical reenactors in period dress.  Their inclusion as stock is intended for clothing, figure and form reference for traditional artists.  They may also be used for tasteful (i.e., not pornographic, hateful, or ridiculously gory) photomanipulations, provided that these are posted on DeviantArt ONLY, and not for profit.  The only exception to this rule would be if the parts of the photo you use in your manipulation are not recognizable as the model (for example, a piece of armor or clothing but NOT a face).  Again, let me see what you've done.  The following galleries are RESTRICTED:

Sturbridge Village
Renaissance Faire
Cowboy Mounted Shooting
Plimoth Colonists
Wampanoag Natives
Revolutionary War
Cowboy Action Shooting

That's all.  Thanks for looking!

That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die...
