Stock: Please note that my work is not stock. Regardless of your personal opinion about each piece, each one is a finished work of art in its own right.(IF you could call anything I've done "art")
Photo Manipulations: Please respect these works by not taking them without permission for photo manipulations. With that said, it does not mean I will never ever give permission for my work to be manipulated. Just please ask first. Please note that from now on, the old adage that says that it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission does not apply here. If you can not be bothered to ask my permission to use a work of art that I created, then I can not be bothered to be nice about it when informed that you have done so. I dislike having to be so dictatorial, but come on folks, it is not that hard to send someone a note. Please respect the hard work, hard earned skill and experience that represented in these images by the artists involved in making them. Just ask.
Derivative Works: If you are interested in painting or drawing one of my photographs, please be aware that permission is needed for this as well. The copyright holder (that would be ME) retains the right to create or grant permission to create derivative works. Everything I said above about manipulations applies here. These are finished works that you are asking to paint, not snapshots, and I retain the power of choice regarding what happens to my creations.
Linking/Posting: If you would like to link to something that I have posted, whether words or images, go right ahead. That is always welcome, and you do not need to ask permission. (Though I am always interested, if you want to let me know!) If you do post my images please link back to my web page or the gallery. Also, please do not remove my watermark and do not add logos or watermarks to my images. Posting images elsewhere without a link back and credit given is not okay, and constitutes theft (REALLY!) which will not please me.
