My philosophy that photography is meant to be seen and not hoarded. My licensing policies balance the costs that go into creating my images with the desire to share my photography.
Ed O’Keeffe Photography allows the use of Ed’s images in two ways:

License To Copyright

Commercial Use of images online or offline is defined broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the context. The determination isn’t based on the tax-filing status of the entity using the image. Nor on whether a financial transaction takes place.

  • Length of use
  • Prominence of display – 1/4 page, full page, spread, front cover, back cover, home page (online), etc.
