Terms of Use

DO NOT STEAL MY PHOTOS!!!

Stealing is ILLEGAL! Taking screenshots of photos from this website, and then posting them, IS STEALING!!! These photos are not online for you to take without purchasing. Not to mention, the photos would look SO much better without my big watermark in the centre. When people see that watermark on a posted photo, they know you stole it.

ALL IMAGES ON THIS WEBSITE ARE COPYRIGHT “LIFE WITH HORSES PHOTOGRAPHY”

If I am informed or find that you are posting photos with my big watermark in the center, I will contact you to remove my photo from online. If you do not comply within 24 hours, I will send you an invoice for $200 per image per online post that you have it in. I will continue to send you this accrual invoice daily.

If you spot one of my images being used without credit, please let me know. It’s not fair that they think they can have free photos. Also, if you get a chance, post a comment when you see one of my photos with a big watermark in the center and say, “That photo would look so awesome without the watermark. If you purchase that photo from the HARD-WORKING photographer, you wouldn’t have that watermark!” 🙂

Oh yes, and for all those that do share stolen photos and don’t remove it when asked, I will also blacklist you from future shows… I won’t take ANY pictures of you at all.

This is my job; my work; my livlihood; and my passion! Would you work for free? Then why should I? Stealing photos from my website is like I am working for nothing and you don’t think my photos are good enough to pay for them. And, my pricing is not unreasonable!

Not to mention, would you print a screenshot of a photo with the watermark, frame it and display it in your home? No.. didn’t think so. Then why would you ‘display’ it for the whole world to see on your social media or website?

There are so many reasons! JUST DON’T STEAL!!!

Most edits, such as putting an ear forward, move a leg slightly, etc., cost $40 plus the cost of the photo you want to purchase. More intricate edits will cost more.

If you purchased digital photos, you will receive an email shortly after you purchase with a link to download your photos. If you don’t see it in your Inbox, check your junk/spam folder, it may be in there. If not, just contact me so I can look into it.

Will you come out and be our official photographer for our show?

Heck, ya! LOL Sorry… Yes, I can come be your official photographer, as long as I am not already booked. Just contact me with the details of your show and I will let you know if I, or one of my associate shooters, can make it.

Why do photos cost so much?

As a professional equine photographer, I have many years of training and expertise in capturing those perfect moments. I spend long hours at shows and then more time processing at home to create the best quality images. Not to mention the cost of the equipment that I use and keep updated. Most horse shows do not pay photographers to be at their event and in some cases will actually charge a fee to shoot. Selling my photos, which are very reasonably priced laughing, is how I make a living… it’s how I pay the bills. So the cost of my photos takes all of this into account and allows me to continue providing my services to the equestrian community and beyond. I appreciate all of you who support me and purchase photos!
