While all images on this website are copyrighted by the photographer, George H. Thomas, my licensing policies are designed to balance the desire to share my photos with the general public with the costs that go into creating and sharing these images. There are two license agreements for all photos on www.naturepicsbygeorge.com:

Creative Common License

With Creative Common licenses you are free to share, copy, distribute and transmit the image for non-commercial purposes.

Commercial Use License

"Commercial Use" regarding the use of NaturePicsByGeorge images online or offline is defined very broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the contextual use of the image. The determination is NOT based on the tax-filing status of the individual or organization using the image nor on whether or not a financial transaction takes place.

Commercial use of any of my images is allowed only if expressly granted by NaturePicsByGeorge. All commercial uses will incur a licensing fee. These fees are based on the following criteria:

All of the photos displayed on the NaturePicsByGeorge website are for sale. I make my own prints up to a size of 17x25 - after which I use a professional lab for anything larger. Prints are offered on five different paper sizes as follows:

Paper Size (inches) ---- Maximum Image Dimensions ---- Price ($USD)

5 x 7 ---- 4.75 x 6.75 ---- $5.00
8.5 x 11 ---- 8 x 10.5 ---- $15.00

13 x 19 ---- 12 x 18 ---- $45.00
17 x 25 ---- 16 x 24 ---- $70.00

Images are resized to fit within the maximum print dimensions listed above while maintaining the ratio of the sides the same as you see on the website. All prices include free shipping to addresses in the continental United States. Upon receiving your print order and any optional mounting and/or framing requests, I will confirm the total amount with you via email. At that time, all payments must be provided via personal check, cashiers check, or money order mailed to the address that I will specify in the confirmation email. Once payment is received, your order will be processed as quickly as possible.
