I am the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in my site, and in the original material published on it. Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved

You may print off one copy, and may download extracts, of any page(s) from my site for your personal reference and you may draw the attention of others within your organisation to material posted on my site

You must not modify the paper or digital copies of any materials you have printed off or downloaded in any way, and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequences or any graphics separately from any accompanying text

My status (and that of any identified contributors) as the author of original material on my site must always be acknowledged

You must not use any part of the materials on my site for commercial purposes without obtaining a licence to do so from me or my licensors

If you print off, copy or download any part of my site in breach of these terms of use, your right to use my site will cease immediately and you must, at my option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made

Fair Use

Some of my images (particularly those using the so-called “Hi’n’lo Key Photography” technique) are based upon images that have been artistically manipulated significantly from the original. These processes are complex and time consuming; requiring both technical skill and artistic judgement. As a result they add originality and make the resulting images new intellectual creations in their own right

Furthermore, the process alters the original image substantially and thus will have no effect on the dealing on the images to which it is applied.

Nonetheless, I go to great lengths to ensure all such modified images I show on this site are one or more of the following:

  • Images for which I hold the copyright
  • Images that are out of copyright
  • Images for which I have been given permission to use

Reference Images

To illustrate fully the main influences on my photography and my artistic thinking, I show important images of photographs and other forms of art. I go to great lengths to ensure all such non-original images I have used on this site are one or more of the following:

  • Out of copyright
  • I have been given permission to use them

My Intention

It is my express intention not to be in breach of copyright. However, if, for whatever reason, I am mistaken please contact me immediately and with an explanation of what copyright is being breached at Edward@PlatinumPrince.com and, if appropriate, I will correct any mistakes
