New:  Stock Photography For Sale

We've just added a new category to the website offering stock photos for sale.  We have three licensing options available:

 

1) Stock Photo Royalty-free Personal Use (small photo) - Allowed to use the purchased photograph for personal purposes only and not for profit.

2) Stock Photo Royalty-free Commercial Use (large photo) - A royalty-free right to use the purchased photograph for profit or otherwise.

3) Stock Photo Exclusive Royalty Free Commercial Use (large photo) - An exclusive royalty-free right to use the purchased photograph for any purpose, for profit or otherwise.

 

Which license do you choose?  It's based upon what you need the image for, as well as your budget for your project.  Here's some examples:

 

Customer #1 sees the image above and would love to have a small print of the photo to place in a frame on her desk.  She doesn't plan to sell the photo - she just wants to print it on her home printer and place it in a frame she has, because she loves the peacefulness of the scene.  This customer would choose license #1 - Stock Photo Royalty-free Personal Use (small photo).  After purchasing, she downloads the photo, prints it, frames it, and places it on her desk in her office.

 

Customer #2 sees the image above and thinks it would make a beautiful photo for her daughter's wedding program cover.  Being the wedding is a not-for profit event and is for her family use only, this customer would also choose license option #1.

 

Customer #3 sees the image above and decides it would look lovely for an upcoming event flyer she is creating.  The event is to advertise a walk for a medical cause.  Money is being raised by individual participants in the walk to donate to cancer research.  This is a non-profit event, therefore the license chosen would also be license #1.

 

Customer #4 is a business owner who loves this image and wants to place it on a brochure she is sending out to obtain new clients.  Being this is for a FOR-PROFIT business, this customer would choose license option #2 - Stock Photo Royalty-free Commercial Use (large photo).  She would receive the largest photo size of the image to pass on to her printer in order to have high quality brochures made for her business brochures.  This customer may also choose to print business cards with this same image to match her brochures, if she desires.

 

Customer #4 - second scenario:  Let's say this customer wants to be the only person allowed to use this image.  She doesn't want to purchase the image for her business cards and brochures, only to find out a month later, her competitor has purchased the same image.  If this is the case, to secure the image for her own use ONLY, customer #4 would then choose license option #3, which gives her exclusive rights to use the image.  Once she purchases the exclusive license option, this image is removed from all other licensing sales, and she is the only person authorized to use this image, in perpetuity.  

 

Customer #5 is a mass market retailer of photographic prints and posters.  This customer would like to use the image above to create posters from for an upcoming line of photographs of scenic pathways.  The customer wants to ensure his company is the only company with this image on the market, therefore he would choose license option #3, and obtain the large photo size for Stock Photo Exclusive Royalty Free Commercial Use.

 

Once an image has sold a non-exclusive license (license option #2), the exclusive image purchase option (license option #3) is removed.

 

Once an image has sold an exclusive license (license option #3), the non-exclusive option (license option #2) and the personal use option (license option #1) are no longer offered.

 

A purchaser of an exclusive image license basically obtains the option to do whatever they want with the image forever.  The photographer still owns the copyright and may display the image in her portfolio or in portfolio photo books featuring her own work (which may or may not be offered for sale), but the photographer removes all individual products and prints with the purchased image from the market and no longer sells the image in any format.

 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss a different licensing option to suit your needs more specifically, please contact us with the name/link of the photo you're interested in, and we will be happy to discuss other options.

I am a photographic artist living in Tennessee, and I love to spend my days in nature capturing life's most serene and peaceful moments, whether it be in landscapes, watching birds and wildlife, or simply enjoying the beauty of a simple flower. I hope you enjoy my work, and that it will bring a moment of serenity into your day. --Jai Johnson
