Terms & Conditions for Art Reference

Terms & Conditions for Art Reference use

Our photos are offered by Ilona and Patrick van Bakkum for art reference use and are only to be used as reference for (non-digital*) artworks. Purchased images may be used solely by the person who purchased the photograph. You may use a purchased reference photo more than once. It is however not allowed to forward, share or give it to others. You may of course refer them to us to purchase their own.

Most of my images found on my social media are available for art reference use (Exceptions from my social media can be images that have been purchased for exclusive/sole use).

Art reference request
To find out of an image is available for art reference use, you can follow the instructions on my website (www.wildlifereferencephotography.com).
Using our images as a reference is not free. We ask for a small fee to allow us to create even more beautiful photos. This fee includes royalty free use of the image(s) and (if required) a high resolution download of the images(s).

Most images are available for prices between € 20,- and € 50,- per photo. The difference in price is based on your level and reach but also on your level. If you are a beginner the fee is lower than a professional. This gives everybody to possibility to purchase a fantastic photo.

Your Art piece
Your art piece may be entered in competitions, exhibitions and/or sold if you have purchased the image for art reference use. You may also sell prints and merchandise your art piece. Basically you are free to do with your art work whatever you want. How cool is that?!

Royalty Free License
To request a Royalty Free License or for more information, contact me via mail or send me a message on Facebook or Instagram.

Sole use for art reference
If you wish to create an exclusive art piece, it is possible to claim ‘sole use’ for reference on a photograph. If the artist and photographer can agree on the price, the photograph will be removed from our pages for art reference and will no longer be available for other artists. The copyright will remain with the photographer at all times, thus the photographer has the right to publish, print, share and sell the original photograph for anything other than art reference.
The price for sole use depends on the popularity of the image.

The original photographs
Original photographs are only to be used by the person who purchased the purchased image(s). You may not use, reproduce, distribute, sell, modify, transmit, revise, reverse engineer, republish, post (on social media or your personal website) or create derivative works (where applicable) the purchased images without my prior written permission.

Copyright of all photographs, will always remain with the photographer.
