BUCS HOCKEY PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICE + MENS MMU v KEELE ALBUMS NOV 2012

Images recording key moments - great as motivators and great for press/media  use.

With over 40 years experience , Media and PR photography specialist based in the North West , I offer a complete,  comprehensive , cost effective professional photography service to  University and College teams , clubs , sports departments, Athletics Unions and marketing departments. I can  provide  large numbers of great  images  at high resolution to suit the broadest range of uses from personal use to marketing and PR use  which  amateur quality and phone cam photos simply cannot offer especially where images need to be enlarged greatly for advertising use or viewed on large screens where lesser quality images would simply pixelate and lose their impact.   I have covered a number of  major international events as  an accredited media photographer for a range of sports but also Varsity derby’s and BUCS tournaments in the north of England  as well as BUCS league games here in Greater Manchester and beyond.

Here is a sample album , from a recent BUCS Men’s Hockey game , typical of  the kind of work I offer  featuring action from the game but also individual player portraits and informal shots of spectators and officials.  On this occasion I was not asked to take team shots  but will always oblige when asked. Where I have not been booked by a team or establishment  I am prepared to offer teams shared rights to all the images at a token cost for personal , social media and some other promotional uses subject to agreement to my terms and conditions.   E mail me for more details or via this link to  MY FACEBOOK PAGE

Please note : I do not normally sell individual image files of particular players  ( reflecting the very modest fee I am asking for shared rights to all images ) so the onus is on a player  on behalf of the team or the team as a whole to decide whether or not to take that offer up.

DISCLAIMER– Enjoy the sample proof album but please read the below remarks to avoid any misunderstanding and being invoiced for unauthorised use of any of  my images!

Images are presented for viewing only , simply to show what it available- all images remain my copyright and no unauthorised  use , including website or any social media use whatsoever can be made of any image, (including watermarked versions) unless the rights have been purchased . It is also a breach of my copyright to crop , amend or alter in any way any of those images and thereafter make any use of that image or part of it without my consent. (I do not allow the posting of links to my albums on club or any other website and never accept a mention of my name or a link to my website in lieu of payment)

FAQs

Why are images watermarked/copyright marked  here ?

I am a professional photographer and my sole income is derived from it- I have of course to show my “wares” on the net here  in order for people to see what is on offer which of course would make my work vulnerable to being copied and used without any payment.  It is a common  myth that any image on social media or that crops up in a Google search is in the “public domain” and therefore free to take and use just as a parked car on the street is not yours to take and drive away. Ignorance of the law  is never a part of  any successful defence !  Normally photographers use the services of small claims courts for redress where there has been breach of image copyright and in all cases damages greatly exceed what the image or images would have cost had the person paid for their use!

All images in the albums  are clearly  watermarked to discourage illegal downloading and unauthorised use  and are very low resolution versions of the large original digital files, greatly compressed on upload , “optimised” for web page use for ease and speed of browsing but also to discourage piracy. The gallery settings do not facilitate viewing sizes that will fill a normal laptop  screen and so for full impact the originals are best viewed full screen , or on wide screen TV or big screen slideshows and  they will not pixellate.

In attending hockey games where I have not been booked, I am  of course supporting the sport and players at my own risk and cost and thereafter promoting the game via social media at my own expense  and yet ,of course , must accept that, even when asking such a modest sum to cover my costs, however much players may enjoy looking at the images  here or via my Facebook page, teams have no obligation to purchase shared rights.

You will appreciate , however, that where, as has happened on several occasions, players download  an image or two ( or in the worst case all the images from an album)  and then upload them, as their own, to social media or a website , or make use of an image as a profile picture without my consent ,  I take a pretty dim view of that.  I will always invoice the club or the academic establishment at a different higher more realistic rate where any unauthorised use of any of my images in any form has been made.  I have to, i will pursue the matter via Small Claims Court if payment is not forthcoming. ( Removal of an image when challenged  does not diminish the fact that unlicensed use has already been made of the image and thus payment would  still be due. )
