  • Client Usage Rights/Copyrights:

    The photographs produced by Meg Hamilton are protected by Federal Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and client must agree to contract terms to be granted Printing Rights for images. Images may not be cropped or color changed in any manner unless Meg Hamilton Photography grants permission. (Cropping for print ratio is understood to be acceptable. i.e. 4x6 & 5x7 will be slightly different when printed.

    If you would like a photo turned black and white, I will be HAPPY to do that for you!

    Client reserves the right to print images using lab of client’s choice. Studio will provide list of commercial printers where quality products can be expected. Because of the nature of commercial labs, the photographer or studio cannot guarantee image quality. Client understands that color variations may occur if lab is not a calibrated printer. Client also understands that there are resolution limitations on all digital images, and that extremely large prints are better printed with professional labs.

    USING PHOTOS ONLINE

    You will be given a folder of WEB images. These images have been expertly sized and sharpend for web use. Commercial web images will not have a watermark, however, acknowledgement of the photographer somewhere on your site, such as a side widget, while not mandatory, it would be greatly appreciated! I, also, HIGHLY recommend that you include a widget on your blog or website that states:

    ALL IMAGES OF "yourbusiness.com" are copyrighted and protected. While sharing of images and articles is encouraged, kindly include a linkback to my site.

    {you are welcome to copy and past this text! TRUST ME, people steal images!}

     

    Sharing on social media is greatly encouraged! If you want to link my business in your post, I would love that, and will, in turn, share your business to my fans!

    In the event that these photos will be published by another business in which that business will be using them for financial gain, the "new" client must obtain written permission from and compensate studio prior to the release. Additional contracts will be needed at that time.

  • Studio Usage Rights/Model Release & Copyrights:

    Client grants studio unrestricted usage rights and copyrights to use and publish photographs in any manner or medium. Client grants studio permission to use images taken within this session in sample albums, marketing materials, editorial, online web presences, including but not limited to, website, social networks, blog, etc. Images may also be used in photographic competitions and for publication in which case the client will release all profits from images.

    Studio will ONLY use client’s photos for commercial reasons for this studio. Client images will not be sold for commercial purposes unless a new contract is signed between studio, client, and purchasing party.

    *Note: While all this sounds scary, it is really just about me being able to share your beautiful pictures on my Facebook page, marketing materials and my website. It helps future clients see what sort of images I take and helps them make a decision to use me for their memories. I’m sure you enjoyed seeing the pictures I have posted!
