Picture Licensing Information

Image piracy is not a victimless crime, so please do not steal my images. I regularly use reverse image searches to find where my images are being used and they will show up, so please think before you assume it is OK to use one of my photos without contacting me.

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. Please check the embedded metadata in your picture to find the exact use it is licensed for and read the terms below BEFORE use. Unauthorised use for ANY purpose is considered copyright infringement and payment for use will be pursued under the relevant domestic law.

The licenses detailed below are not assignment of copyright, they allow use of images for specific purposes and must be purchased at the appropriate fee. For more details contact Tom: thomasdayphotographer@gmail.com
