 Special Notes for Musicians, Managers, Agents and Publications About Use of Photos

Publications or publishers interested in licensing any of my photos for editorial use, please contact me regarding terms. You may phone or send email to mail (at) nwilsonphoto.com 

If you are a musician or other performer whose photo is posted in the Music and Events section of this website, below is some information for you about use of the photos.

A. All photos on this site are copyright Nicholas Wilson, and can lawfully be copied and used only with written permission, however ... 

B. I will be happy to give performers written permission to use my photo of them on their own website free of charge, subject to the following terms and conditions:

  1. Please send an email to mail (at) nwilsonphoto.com or mail a letter requesting use of a specific photo or photos. Please identify yourself and provide a mailing address and phone number for verification. State that you want to use the photo on your own artist website and provide the address (URL) of your website. Please identify the file number or name of each image you want to use and the year and name of the event where it was taken.  I'll put a link to your website on my Links Page. I'll reply to your email and also mail you a written license to use the photo(s) on your site, provided that you comply with the remaining conditions below. 

  2. You agree to use the digital photo file as received from me and not to crop or modify it or remove or obscure the copyright notice and credit that appears in the photo. If the size of the photo on this website is too big for your use, ask and I will provide you the size you need.

  3. You agree to put a photo credit "Photo by Nicholas Wilson - nwilsonphoto.com" in legible type adjacent to the photo.

  4. You agree to put a link to www.nwilsonphoto.com on the same web page as the photo, preferably next to or as part of the photo credit. 

  5. You agree that I may sell prints of my photos of you as works of art to other people for their personal, non-commercial enjoyment. You acknowledge that I may sell editorial publication rights to musical or other magazines or book publishers to use my photos of you for editorial use, for example to illustrate a story about you or the event at which you appeared. I acknowledge that I may not sell commercial use of my recognizable photos of you without your permission. An example of commercial use that requires a release from you is using the photo in an advertisement.

C. If you would like a free 4x6 print of any of my images of you: 

  1. Mail a self-addressed postage-paid photo mailer to the address below. 

  2. Enclose a signed letter (on letterhead if you have one) identifying yourself and listing the image file number of each photo you appear in that you would like a print of. (The file numbers appear on the web gallery pages below the captions.) Also include your phone number and email address, and, if you have a website, include the address so I can add it to my links page.

  3. The prints available through this offer are for your personal use only, and are not for reproduction or commercial use. If you would like an 8x10 or larger print for personal use, please email me for current pricing and availability. 

  4. This free print offer is for performers only, and does not include audience or vendor photos.

  5. You agree that I may sell prints of my photos of you as works of art to other people for their personal, non-commercial enjoyment. You acknowledge that I may sell publication rights to music or other periodicals or book publishers to reproduce my photos of you for editorial use, for example to illustrate a story about you or the event at which you appeared. I acknowledge that I may not sell commercial use of my recognizable photos of you without your permission; for example using the photo in an advertisement.

  6. If you follow the above steps I'll mail you one free 4x6 print of each photo of you that you list that appears in the music and events sections of this website.

D. If you would like to use of any of my images for publicity photos,  posters, flyers, CD inserts, t-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads or other merchandise for sale or for promotions, please contact me to negotiate fair and reasonable licensing terms. The copying or use of any of the images on this website without written permission is a violation of copyright law.

  3. If you object to me selling prints of my performance photos of you to people for personal enjoyment as works of art, please email me. Please understand that I can legally sell photos of you as works of art for non-commercial use, or for editorial use in a publication, without your permission, but if you object, I may agree not to, and I may also take your photos off this site, at my discretion. If you feel a photo of you on this site is unflattering or shows you in a bad way, please let me know. I aim to please.
