Terms and Conditions: Dave Lintott Photography

 The copyright of every image displayed on this site belongs to Dave Lintott (or the listed photographer) unless specifically stated under contractual agreement to the contrary. All images are licensed for either editorial or personal use and may not be used commercially.
Images sold for personal use are not to be redistributed to third parties or reproduced in editorial, commercial or any other form that promotes any business or activity, without the explicit consent of the photographer and person(s) and/or organisation(s) depicted in the image(s) sold.

The photographer, Dave Lintott, does not accept commissions to create copyright works other than to agree to license such parts of the work selected by the photographer for presentation to the client. This overrides section 21(3) of the Copyright Act 1994 in accordance with section 21(4) of that Act.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, any images supplied, downloaded or emailed are supplied under license for use by the client only, and not for distribution to third parties for use other than any purpose discussed when engaging the purchase and/or coverage of the subject(s) depicted. Images are not supplied exclusively unless agreed in writing. Original files remain the full property of Dave Lintott Photography.

We advise that you may not copy or display for redistribution to third parties or for commercial purposes any photograph, image or other portion of this site without Dave Lintott Photography’s prior written permission.

Dave Lintott Photography reserves all rights in relation to recovery of images and compensation for any breach of copyright.

Dave Lintott Photography does not act as freelance contributor to news media. All images and works on this site are created as artworks which are sold on the proviso that the artworks are supplied as copies for specified use. Engagement of services does not constitute ownership of time involved, nor of original unedited files or any aspects of interaction between photographer and subject, unless specifically agreed in written form before such work is undertaken.

Contractual image supply is available on a royalty-free basis. Contact me to discuss arrangements.

Any publication in editorial form must carry a text credit to "Dave Lintott Photography" where space and page format allows.

NOTE: Many sporting organisations enforce restrictions over image rights from their events, and the available usage of such images is thus limited, and such images may not be reproduced without the consent of the related sporting body. Any sales of event imagery are bound by the event organiser's terms and conditions.

Unless otherwise stated, photo license agreements are based on one year terms (from date of supply) and require a photo credit to the Photographer / Dave Lintott Photography when printed or posted. No sub-licensing is granted to client unless explicitly granted in writing.

Using any image as the base for another illustration or graphic content, including photography, is a violation of copyright and intellectual property laws. Violation of copyright will be actively prosecuted.

I endeavour to treat all subjects with respect and ask the same in return.

I have been a professional photographer for over 29 years. Many people ask for free imagery, with a marketing boost implied by promised "name credit" or byline. In my opinion companies and individuals who encourage these transactions are contributing to the rapid erosion of photography as an industry, and also to the downturn in quality of photography in the public domain. This is my business and sole source of income.  I do not give free photography away, so please do not ask. Thank you.
