Usage information

To use my images you will need a license. Many of my images have a free Creative Commons license (see below). If a Creative Commons license does not fit your need, we can make another arrangement. Contact me and I'll get back to you very shortly.

Free images (Creative Commons)

I publish many images for free over at Flickr and Wikimedia/Wikipedia with a free Creative Commons license. The low resoluction is perfect to use on social media or in a blog and I encourage you to look up and use these free images. Just make sure you follow the attribution instructions below.

Have a look at the gallery of my free images at Wikimedia Commons and Flickr. To make it easy to find and use these images they are tagged with proper metadata (description, date, keywords, location information et cetera).

Images for print in a newspaper, posters et cetera will look better with a high resolution image. Please contact me here to inquire about a license for print. I'll get back to you very shortly.

How to use free images (Creative Commons)

When you see an image with the CC BY-SA 4.0 tag,  like the one just above here, it's a free Creative Commons image! That means you can do anything you like to the image. Copy it, modify it, save it, print it, share it - what ever you like to do with it! The only condition is that you credit the photographer.

Attribution instructions for Creative Commons images:

1) In the immediate vicinity of the image, credit:
