License To Copyright

All of Jason Tupeck Photography’s portrait, wedding and event photography sessions include a limited release for the client to print an unlimited copy of the image(s) taken by Jason Tupeck Photography for personal use. Also included with all sessions are a set of images formatted for web, email and social media sharing. This release does not included a license for commercial use of any of the images taken.

‘Commercial Use’ regarding the use of images online or offline is defined very broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the contextual use of the image. The determination is NOT based on the tax-filing status of the entity using the image nor on whether or not a financial transaction takes place.

Length of Use – 1 year, 2 years, etc.
Prominence of Display – 1/4 page, 1/2 page, full page, spread, front cover, back cover, home page (online), interior page (online), etc.
