Photos that a photographer hands over to you are part of their life’s work. It has their name or branding so there are a few important photo restrictions to note when it comes to the professional digital images that you receive.
The digital images that your photographer provides you with are copyrighted. Which means the photographer has the option to use those photos to market their work and services anytime in the future. For me, I am respectful of my clients. So if there are any images that you would prefer to keep private, it’s best to let me know about it ahead of time. So I would be able to honor your wishes.
I’m not able to provide you with the original files or raw images. All images given to my clients have been cropped and have been edited. If you do require further touch ups I would need to provide you with a quote.
While I appreciate your business and welcome the sharing of my photos on social media platforms, I ask that the images not be altered in any way as this is against my copyright policies.
What constitutes image altering?
- Adding filters or editing photos in Photoshop or any photo editing software/app
- Removing my logo or studio name
- Color correcting or including transitions from color to black and white
- Clipping people or objects out of the original shot
So why do I have this as a photo restriction? My photos are a representation of my work so when a client alters an image it directly impacts my name and brand in the industry. When I present you with final images, they have already been through my editing process and don’t require further alterations. When images are altered, the results are not always reflective of my original work and can then be mistaken for mine. I greatly appreciate your loyalty and cooperation in this matter.
