After much careful consideration I have decided to update the copyright status of my photographs to bring all future works in line with the generally accepted rules.
Please note that this applies for all future portrait and event work but these changes will not effect any photographs posted before this date.
As a photographer I retain 100% ownership of my photographs unless otherwise stated. This means no unauthorised sharing, editing or cropping of my photographs is allowed.
The sharing of proof images from a photo shoot or event photographs is no longer acceptable unless shared directly through my website using the available links. Unfortunately too many people are sharing photographs which have not been purchased.
If I post something on Facebook or twitter you are only allowed to share the image directly from my page, Facebook or Twitter account. If you have purchase an image and I have supplied a digital version of it you are still allowed to post this freely as I openly encourage the sharing of the photographs you order.
