You may license any images. We can provide you with web quality or high-resolution print ready files that meet your needs. Our licensing policies are designed to balance the cost that goes into creating and sharing our images with the desire to provide inspiration to you, your clients, and customers.
Most licensing requests are unique. When we work directly with you we can provide you what you need to your exact specifications, saving you time and money. We understand we can not be successful unless you are successful.
Direct To You
Licensing an image is done in the form of licensing of the image file. The desired file or files are provided by Brad Mangas Photography (licensee) to the buyer (licencor) for an agreed upon fee. Files are provided via download directly from https://bradmangas.com or secure location for files larger than 128mb. The image is prepared and uploaded where it will then be available for download. This may be a password protected site, password will be provided by Brad Mangas. Once agreement of terms have been made by both parties access will be granted by Brad Mangas Photography to licencor where the image file can easily be downloaded for use.
No Third Party
Why do we take the time to license our work directly instead of using a third party stock agency to handle everything? For the exact reasons as mentioned. We want you to receive exactly what you need, and purchase only what you want, no more, no less. This typically cannot be done through a third party stock licensing agency, you will most always end up paying for what you don’t need or receiving what you didn’t want.
Licensing of images has changed and changed drastically over the past few years. There is no longer a requirement to have a third party set the criteria and price of what it will offer you, the potential buyer. Image files can easy be provided directly from the owner/artist. Not only does this reduce cost it provides you with direct contact allowing for specific requirements to be met quickly and easily.
Customized Licensing For Your Needs
We take great pride in being able to offer a specific image license for any use you may need. Licenses are contingent on a per use bases. One license is required for each separate use.
We realize you can spend a good deal of time looking for just the right images for your business, company, or clients. We strive to make the process as hassle-free as possible from start to finish. We offer free quotes for any need along with our generous licensing terms.
