Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between commercial and non-commercial licensing/photography?

Commercial photography is used to sell a product or service. Non-commercial is for personal use.

Commercial licensing/photography is used to sell or promote a product or service, or otherwise support a business or organization in making more money. I.E (shoots for/with models, products, magazine/newspaper publications, T.V, book covers, event & promo flyers, social media, brochures, websites, billboards). Our commercial licensing is for 1 year with the option to renew/add years for an additional fee if needed. 

Non-commercial licensing/ photography is for use or activity where the purpose is not the sale of a good or service, and the use or activity is not intended to produce a profit. I.E (birthdays, family portraits, graduation, engagements, weddings)
