Usage/Licensing of Photographs - Christina Power Photography
  • Usage/Licensing of Photographs

As a sole creator of her work, Christina Power remains sole owner of all copyrights for the photography images she produces-even after the sale of one of her works. When an image is purchased , what is actually happening is that Christina Power becomes "licensor" to the buyer who becomes the "licensee". Understanding how PHOTO USAGE LICENSING works can be important because its dynamics affecting the pricing of the works and responsibilities of each party involved. 


If you want to purchase an image from Christina , please describe precisely how you intend to use the image(s). Christina will then draft an appropriate license agreement and determine a price. Once the terms are agreed upon the images will be sent via CD/email/internet along with an invoice. 


All of Christina's images are Non-Exclusive. A Non-Exclusive license allows Christina to sell additional licenses of the same image to other parties under separate agreements. 


One time use license agreements for digital images- This licensing arrangement provides the buyer/licensee with the right to use an image for any commercial, personal, non-profit or editorial projects involving advertising, print media, website publication, or broadcast for a single instance. In this case, the licensing agreement will specify the extent of the image's usage-whether it will be printed in a newsletter, newspaper or billboard-or shared on a website etc. Also included in the agreement (and affecting the price of the license) will be the number of copies being made (for print media) or duration that the image is to be posted (for web media). Any additional printing runs or featuring of the images on the web will require an additional license agreement. 


Copyright and Credits- Implicit to any licensing agreement is the buyer/license's agreement to credit the owner of the copyright (Christina Power) whenever any image is used. No copyright or intellectual property is transferred at any point to the buyer/licensee. When possible, Christina will appreciate photo credits to include not only her name but a link to his website: christinapowerphotography.com
