The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving us the exclusive right to reproduce the photographs we’ve made of you.
We ask you to respect our copyright and not reproduce images you do not have a license for. It’s stealing and not very nice! Copyright violations include, but are not limited to:
- Making copies
- Printing from home
- Downloading from our website
- Attempting to print from files not authorized for reproduction
It is illegal to copy or reproduce photographs we’ve created in any manner without our written permission. Violators of this Federal Law are subject to civil and criminal penalties in excess of $200,000. Please understand, Whitesell Photography wishes to maintain control over the print quality, finishes and presentation of their images and therefore any reproduction outside of the studio lowers the quality of the images and damages the studio’s reputation.
Unauthorized reproduction of images we create also prevents our staff from making a living. This is how we support our families and we ask you to honour that. Thank you!
