COPYRIGHT

Information you need to understand

This subject is often misunderstood but it's quite simple to example and understand!

Every image "I" capture, I own.

A photograph is protected by copyright automatically from the moment it is taken. 

I can sell a digital file to you or sell you it as a print... BUT, I still own it!

It is not permissible to give it away, provide it for free use to others, or use it on your business website without paying a commensurate rate for the commercial gain such as 'advertising an image' might provide your business. 

Licensing Agreement

Before each photo session, Jessica Tome Photography will email the client a special licensing agreement that will allow the client to use ONLY the photographs under an agreed contract. 

This does NOT mean the client will own the photos, it is merely for usage on media platforms!
