Image Use Policy - Beechnut Photography

Rights for digital and print use of un-watermarked images may be purchased by clicking the “buy” button next to each photo or photo gallery.

Non-profit/Classroom Use

I encourage use of my photographs for science education and other non-profit uses by students, teachers or researchers. Images may be downloaded with watermark or you may contact me for access to un-watermarked original images for the lectures, scientific presentations, and school projects. The exception is if these images will be part of lectures or presentations that will be uploaded to the internet for potential commercial use by another party (eg. your lectures will be sold as part of an on-line course to benefit your college or university). In each case the citations of image source –BeechnutPhotography.com/Joel Duff – in keeping with good scholarship is requested.

Non-profit organizations are also welcome to request use of photography usually free of charge with proper attribution.

Images may be licensed for personal (blogging, personal web design, fine art printing for individual resale) or commercial (company webpages, books, merchandise, magazines, etc.) use by clicking on the "add-to-cart" button associated with each image or for a whole gallery. Images are usually available it different sizes and resolutions depending on your need.
