I am glad to see that you have an interest in using one of my images. Please take the time to review my conditions as stated below.
Personal Use Policy
So, you want to use an image as your wallpaper on your own personal computer or print out a picture for your refrigerator. I would consider those personal uses. If you intend to use an image in a way that does not generate any revenue, does not advertise or promote any product or service, and does not support any publication, editorial, news services, business, or organization, I may consider this personal use. If you intend to use this image as part of a service or product that results in private monetary compensation, it is no longer personal use. If you are uncertain, please check with me. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to acquire an image for use in an advertisement, portfolio (web or print), brochure, flyer, catalog, web promotion, book, CD/VCD/DVD cover, poster, calendar, t-shirt, any form of print, broadcast, performance, art, electronic media, etc, you will need to purchase a commercial use license. This license will allow you to use an image one time for a specific purpose. Multiple image/multiple use licenses are available at a discounted fee. Usage fees are based on image size, circulation, and the general value that the image contributes to the end product.
All use, except personal use, requires that proper photo credit be included as part of publication. This notice must include, at the minimum, the following text: "© Chris Grossmeier". Failure to include a proper photo credit and copyright will result in a damage assessment of at least three times the normal commercial rate for such use.
I treat non-Profit organizations no different from any other commercial business in regards to licensing of images. Non-Profits still generate and spend more money that I earn. If you are a non-profit organization and would like to use any of my images, please contact me for options. I am flexible, but I do not donate my works free. A reduced Non-Profit web usage pricing is provided below.
Please note that each of my images are of the highest quality, geared to the professional photo buyer. None of my images appear in any clip art collection. Fees are quoted based on specific use including: size, placement, circulation, distribution (local, national, international), length of display time, uniqueness of the image, and cost of production.
If you have any questions, please contact me. I am willing to work with anyone for any size job. If you have specific needs not listed below, please let me know. I am willing to make arrangements to almost any situation.
