C. Copyright & Penalty
Asher + Oak Photography by Cai Vail retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. You are invited to order archival gallery-quality prints of your photographs through Asher + Oak Photography, which will give the best quality and clarity in retaining the beauty of the original images. Keep in mind that printing through other methods, on non-professional quality printers and paper or through low-priced printing services, may result in a deteriorated image, incorrect coloring, and other issues. If you choose to order a digital-only package, a print release will be given with digital files to print portraits for personal use. The print release does not allow publication of your portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering of your images without the photographer’s written permission. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by Asher + Oak Photography by Cai Vail during client’s photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in an online proofing gallery, blog, Facebook, or hard copy images. If client steals images via any method listed above, or any other method, client will be invoiced for the cost of EACH digital image client has stolen, at photographer’s current price per digital file.
Note from photographer: I work very hard to create images that reflect you and your family, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them and include a sneak-peek for that very reason, and I welcome you to share them everywhere you like. However, I ask that you simply link back to my blog/website/facebook page instead of right-clicking, saving, and sharing the image via your own page. I hope that you will respect not only my hard work, but the time, money, and dedication that I have put into training and equipment to capture these images for you. Please do not steal them, crop or edit them in any way, including use of filters on social media. These images have already been professionally edited and are not only a representation of you and your family or business, but of my work, and should remain unaltered.
