... just wanted to let you know that we're still alive. 
There was so much serious stuff in real live we had to deal with so that we didn't have any spare time for LuDa-Stock...

When I came back today, I couldn't believe you guys didn't leave us. 20.000 new notifications! :faint: Thank you for still supporting us while we aren't here. I hope you understand that it's impossible to read all the commies.
A question that we are being asked all the time is, how much is a license for commercial use, how many points do I have to pay for a commercial usage of one of your stock photos. 
Paying isn't voluntarily (when you use our photos commercially, you have to pay for the usage), but we don't have a fixed prize table. Just pay what you think our stock photos are worth, most people give about 5% of their commission earnings, some give more to support us, some give less.

So please guys, you don't need to ask what you have to pay - simply donate some points  so that this account doesn't lose it's core membership and we can keep up with submissions. 

See you soon...
Update: Added a bunch of new expressions! (if you ever doubted that we may be German - now you know :giggle: This is a collection for better tagging and description of our stock photos! You can always suggest new words or correct wrong translations!

LuDa-Stock Rules and FAQ

:new: COMMERCIAL USAGE: We're currently getting many requests concerning commercial usage of our artworks, for example for commissions or prints. Thank you for being so honest and asking for permission to use our stuff. Many people got an individual permission to use our stock for commercial artwork and were asked to donate a few points to our stock account in return. This worked out so well! We decided to open our stock for limited commercial usage now, you don't need to ask us via private message but we ask you to donate a small percentage of what you earned with artwork made from our stock - new rules see below.

So, if you plan to use our stock for commercial artworks: Feel free to use. Credit us in the comments/below the picture and please point out that you've paid for the commercial usage (e.g. Stock Used: [link] by LuDa-Stock, permission for commercial license through point donation). Donate a few points for our stock account (there's an option to donate points on our profile page).

IMPORTANT: We still don't want our stock to be reposted anywhere! Do not repost our photos on stock webpages se it for professional "wallpaper" or "poster" sale pages!

Our terms of use are:


Free for uncommercial use as references and photomanips, free for print sales inside of dA, free for SIM games outside of dA. Photo must be edited somehow! Don't repost the original picture anywhere and claim it as your photo! Credit us! 
You may use our work for artwork that respects our rules and does not violate law or harm the personal rights of anyone who might be depicted on the stock photos. You must follow the rules of DA concerning unacceptable content help.deviantart.com/60/

That means in detail:

Give proper credit:  
Please credit us - directly on your finished artwork or below in the description (e.g.: Stock Photo by: www.LuDa-Stock.deviantart.com)! Videos: place our name on the pictures or in the credits. This is a must! Never use our pictures without giving credit, otherwise it's a copyright infringement!
Inside of dA, it's fine if you credit us in the artist's comments. Elsewhere you should credit us directly on the picture or nearby.

Free Usage:  
:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: Private / uncommercial Artistic use  Our stock pictures are free to use for personal artworks of any kind (prints, manipulations or drawings of our pictures. You're allowed to show your art to the world (on deviantart, twitter, facebook, own website...).
Why no commercial usage? We spent a lot of time (and money! Professional photo equipment is expensive!) to make our stock photos. We paid entrance fees to equine shows to make the pictures. We spent hours of editing. We do this mainly to support young artists to improve their skills. Sharing is caring. Share your artworks as well to help others. So please do not make profit out of our work!

Restricted Commercial use:
Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Traditional art (original piece sale): Stock is free to use (that's absolutely fine because you've spent hours of work to create your artwork. Even when you closely referenced our photos, you still have created your own, new artwork)!
:new:Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Traditional art prints (5+ copies): Please donate some points to our stock account after commission is successfully sold (deviantArt prints are free)!
:new:Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Bullet; Green  Digital painting (single commission)  Please donate some points to our stock account after commission is successfully sold (deviantArt prints are free)!
:new:Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow  Multiplied digital painting (e.g. prints), photomanip commissions Please donate some points to our stock account for each sold artwork made with our stock. For massive duplicates planned (>100), please contact us first (deviantArt prints are free with a big amount of artistic modification - replacing background, adjusting contrast/colors or replacing mane/tail IS NOT enough!)
:new:  How many points should I donate? It's up to you, depending on how much you earn from your sales and how much the stock picture influenced the artwork (for example: when you're using a horse photo for an exact 1:1 digital painting from it, then our stock picture influenced your artwork a lot. When you sell it for 2000 points, you could donate 100 points, that's 5%. When you're using a picture of a flower for decoration on a huge photomanipulation piece, then our stock photo is just a small puzzle piece in an artwork, when you sell it for 500 points, you could donate 5 points, that's 1%)
Bullet; Red Bullet; Red Bullet; Red  Use of the unedited Photo You are not allowed to use our stock in printed journals/magazines without our permission (-> if you're interested, please contact us), you are not allowed to use or offer our stock photos for money on any other stock providing website!

Illustration for blog entries, journals, articles There were many cases in the past where people wrote articles/blog entries about equine subjects and used our photos to illustrate the topics. We are mainly a stock provider for artists so we provide our photos for artistic purposes. We do not want you to repost the original photos anywhere!
Since there are so many requests, we decided to allow the usage of our photos in some special cases. Note us if you want to use our photos we will decide from case to case. In any case, you will have to give credit to us!
When you see a Lu-Da-photo in a blog article without any credit, this is pretty sure unauthorized. Please note us so we can contact the blog owner.

Any questions? If you're still uncertain if your way of using our art is okay, feel free to comment here or write a note :-)

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:IMPORTANT: Special Rules of usage concerning human stock (any photographs showing humans). :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

I. Please be respectful towards the people shown on the pictures. Do not use our human stock in a defamatory way (e.g. pornograhic, extremely violent or erotic artworks) when the person itself is recognizable. 

II. Do NOT under any circumstances repost the original human stock photos anywhere, do not link to them as the base for a discussion about their look, hairstyle, riding style or anything else concerning their privacy or personal rights . We provide riding pictures showing disharmonious situations. They are not there to blame the riders, they are there for artists to use as references in case they need to draw such a scene.The pictures may NOT be representive for the whole riding unit - they are just the most interesting snapshots for drawing and anatomy practice (by the way, we have "ugly" snapshots of almost any international rider, even from those who are known for their gentle riding style. Being captured in a bad phase can happen to every rider!). 


LuDa-Stock

We're four photographers from Germany and Austria and we want to support talented artists by providing references for their artistic education and work.
Feel free to use them as inspiration, light or colour references, photo backgrounds for artwork, photomanipulations, textures...
Feel free to modify our photographs for your purposes, but please do not resubmit them in their original form and claim them to be your artwork/photographs. Always credit us, so that other people get to know our stock account, too. :-) See here for detailed Terms of Use.

Some of our stock photos are high resolution made with DSLR Cameras and Bridge Cameras, others are of poorer quality because they were taken with a compact camera. Sorry for that, but we nevertheless decided to submit them, they're still good enough as blurred backgrounds or pose refs.


Our stock account is specialized in Equine and Medieval Themed Stock, but we always look out to take other nice stock images as well.

Please support us by faving photos you used or even hit the "watch" button ;-) You can find us on facebook, too! We have the facebook account for artists without dA account to contact us.
Watch us, to be up-to-date with our gallery. We submit new series of Photos frequently!
