Copywritten Work

I dont like to rattle on about such matters, but I do spend alot of time, money and effort taking pictures.

Although I enjoy doing it, the practice of getting up two hours before dawn, climbing a mountain to photograph some of natures most beautiful sights is inspiring, rewarding and highly recommended!!

So too is the wedding photography, an emotional, heart warming day and to be invited as an integral part of someones most precious moments actually still gives me that lump in the throat everytime..

However there are individuals out there who feel that they would rather just copy someones hard work whether it be an image, words, website design or ideas and use it in a way which benefits or suits them.

This is not acceptable I'm afraid and also it is illegal, this page details the necessary steps taken by myself to inform you of what you can and cant do with my work and how the copyright law protects me and my customers images when used with or without permission.

I hope you'll understand the reasons why this page is here...

Thank you
