Licensing

Commercial and personal licensing is available for most of the photos that you see on this website. Below I have provided a guideline of licensing costs. Tier 1 and Tier 2 photo prices vary depending on the photo itself.

 

TIER 1 – $1,000-MARKET PRICE – These photos are considered the ‘best of the best’ in my collection. Tier one photos have unique qualities that make it a ‘tier 1’ photo, such as rarity, difficulty getting the shot, editing quality, and other factors. Drama within the photo is a major qualification. Examples may include: a large well-shaped supercell thunderstorm, a dramatic city skyline, once-in-a-lifetime events, photos of places or buildings that no longer exist (former Las Vegas casinos, other businesses, bridges, etc).

TIER 2 – $250-MARKET PRICE – These photos include beautifully edited landscapes, cityscapes, waterscapes and more. These photos may have been difficult to capture, expensive to capture, have a unique quality, or be a photo taken under an uncommon circumstance (think lava flows, glacial ice melt, etc). These photos may also contain a person in which you can mostly or completely recognize and see the face.

TIER 3 – $100/each – These photos include photos that may be difficult or expensive to capture, such as aerial photos. Tier 3 photos may also include seasonal photos that may be less common to capture. Post-produced photos of annual festivals and events may also fall into this category. Examples may include: aerial photos, county fair photos, storm photos, sunset/sunrise photos.

TIER 4 – $50/each – A common photo of high quality that is capable of being taken by almost anyone at almost anytime. General stock photos or other common unedited or lightly edited photograph. Examples may include: photo of a local water tower, sign, building, car, common object that has no more than slight editing such as color correction and lighting corrections made to the photo.

 

Bulk pricing is available. Request a quote if you wish to purchase multiple photos.
