Copyright Information

The (unfortunately) necessary legal bit:

Please do not assume it is OK to use one of my photos without contacting me first.

All pictures made by Thomas Day:Photographer are copyright of Thomas Day, Thomas Day Photography and Thomas Day:Photographer and are licensed for specific uses by specific clients. I do not sell or assign my copyright of any images to 3rd parties.

If you have not contacted me and gained my permission before using one of my images, you are in violation of copyright. If you contact me and gain permission but use the image outside of the agreed terms you are in violation of copyright. Unauthorised use for ANY purpose is considered copyright infringement and payment for use will be pursued under the relevant domestic law.

When used, “Thomas Day:Photographer” must always be credited unless otherwise agreed. Where possible, a link to my website or social media should also be provided.

Licenses issued for use are not assignment of copyright, they allow use of images for specific purposes and must be purchased at the appropriate fee. Fees vary dependent upon the client and the intended use.

For more details contact Tom: thomasdayphotographer@gmail.com

If the use of any picture(s) contravenes the above terms of use, the client will be liable for the appropriate fees. An invoice will be presented and will be payable immediately if not agreed before the change of use or any non-permitted usage. Editing of any kind without prior approval of Thomas Day:Photographer or agencies selling on my behalf is not permitted. The removal of embedded metadata or watermarks resulting in the creation of orphan works will be regarded as a breach of copyright and damages will be pursued under the applicable domestic law.

Copyright violation is not a victimless crime, so please do not steal my images – I have mouths to feed.

I regularly use reverse image searches to find where my images are being used and they will show up.
