Letter from the Captain,
I get asked daily for permission to use my photographs. Most people expect these images to be free… they are to an extent. As much as I would love to give my images out for free, the reality is, I still need to make a living. Producing compelling images is my passion but it’s also my profession, and I can only do this with your support.
Personal Image Usage Rights – Free
Personal use of my image for a non-commercial blog or website is free as long as you credit me for the photo. Also if you are a musician/artist and would like to use my photographs, I’m totally cool with that. I’m all about promoting creativity! However for those of you who need a high resolution file you must purchase the image for personal use. See below on how to buy images.
Commercial Image Usage Rights – $14.95 to $29.95
Commercial license is required for using my photos with any business, company, group or organization, including non-profit and editorial. Image file will be emailed once payment has been received. All images are 300dpi high resolution jpeg format free from watermark. There is no need to credit me when you buy rights to use my images. When payment is made I will also send you a PDF file giving you permission to use my image(s) commercially with your business.

Examples of My Photos being Used Commercially
Below are examples of how my images are being used in the business world. It always surprises me where some of them end up!
Above is a photo of me and the Chief of Police in Jupiter Florida, Frank Kitzerow. Frank bought the photo for his office from the Jupiter Lighthouse Museum Gift Shop. If you drop by the gift shop keep an eye out for it. It shouldn’t be too hard to miss, it’s one of the biggest pieces there! Click here to see the original photo.
The alligator photo above was published in a article for Reader Digest about the Everglades. The Everglades is a cool place but I think most people visit the park for the alligators. In that case I recommend Shark Valley for anyone visiting. You’ll get a taste of the Everglades and plenty of alligator photos. Click here to see the original photo.
The photo of the pirate ship above was used for an official stamp for the Pitcairn Islands. Have you ever heard of it? Me too. I had to Google it to find out where it was. Which was out in the middle of nowhere! Click here to see the original photo.
The Jupiter Lighthouse photo above is probably one of my most well known photo for Jupiter, Florida. I’ve had many requests for it to be used on different things. One of the coolest request was for binoculars or Fanoculars to be exact.
Here is an image that I received from Florida Community Bank with my image on a sample credit card. The above photo was taken on Singer Island Beach during a full moon rise at night. You can see the original photo here.
