HERE IS THE WRITTEN PUBLIC STATEMENT
All images and text appearing on this site are the property of Glenn McKimmin. They remain protected by Australian Copyright Laws. The images and text are not to be downloaded or reproduced in any way or used for personal, editorial, or commercial purposes without the written permission by Glenn McKimmin. All Rights Reserved.
THE AGE OF THE INTERNET & SOCIAL MEDIA
Our livelihood as photographers is dependent on the income we can generate taking pictures. Some people might suggest that exposure alone is appropriate compensation. Perhaps they would change their thinking if they didn’t receive payment for the jobs they do. For many years in the print media, there has been a minimum standard of attaching the photographer’s name near every photograph that appears. It’s that credit that provides an avenue for others to find us. In today’s Internet age, we offer clear guidance for the use of our photography. In exchange for image usage, there are two clear options you can choose.
1. Written permission for image usage with appropriate citation.
2. A paid image usage license
Once you have written permission, these are the requirements for sharing our photography publicly.

If we do deliver a request for removal, per our written agreement, you agree to remove the photos within 24 hours of receipt of that request.
