Obtaining Digital Image Files

All digital image files are, and always will remain, the sole property of © Tom Hunter Photography, by copyright law. Digital image files are not sold, but instead, may be leased for a specific usage (licensing agreement) for commercial advertising.

When purchasing photos, Tom Hunter understands the want for obtaining all the digital image files (as part of your purchase), so that the digital image files would be readily available for you, your family, and friends for making prints (CD Slideshows, Screen Savers, Coffee Mugs, Coffee Books, Albums, Greeting Cards, T-Shirts, internet, etc.), at any time, and at a cheaper cost.

In short, by releasing the digital image files (without a contract/licensed agreement), Tom Hunter Photography be selling the farm (setting the business up for failure, not being in control of his work), as the end user, or third party would now be capable of publishing or distorting (both) the images however they may see fit. Tom Hunter conciders his images as a quality product, and investment, and its up to Tom Hunter to uphold its standard. Tom Hunter takes a lot of pride in his work (because of invested creativity, skills, equipment, etc.), and to have his images pirated or manipulated, would be a disservice of Tom's work.

As for printed images or art, there is great satisfaction in viewing personal photography diplayed up on a wall of your home, office, etc., giving you much pleasure, and something to cherish for many years to come. So it is important to that Tom's work is presented in its highest standard to his clients, and to anyone who views these products.

Tom Hunter Photography provides a quality service that will fulfill your needs, assuring that you will receive a product with the utmost value (whether it's prints, coffee cups, t-shirts, etc).

If photography, or a stock digital image file is needed for commercial advertising, please contact Tom Hunter Photography to discuss your needs.
