Photography Sessions

Commissions are taken with the explicit understanding that copyright is retained by CindyLee Portrait on all photographs created at your session. Copyright encompasses the right to reproduce, scan, digitise, or copy in any fashion.

All clients are asked to sign a model release before their session.  Your consent will be required if your image is to be used by CindyLee Portrait for promotion, awards or display. Your wishes are respected if you don’t want your photographs to be used by the studio for our marketing.

Cameras or recording devices are not permitted to be used at your session. Photographs not purchased within sixty days of your session will be deleted to make way for new work.

General Copyright

All my images / photographs / artistic works / graphics / designs & wording are copyright to me, Cindy Lee (Cindy Lee van Gaalen) and are therefore not available for free use.

If you are interested in ANY of my works, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss it.

Please be aware however that I will pursue any & all unauthorised use of my works. Impossible you say? Well I’ve thought long and hard about this and you will find that all of my works have a non visible watermark that is traceable. I did warn you!!!

Thank you for taking the time to be considerate enough to acknowledge my copyrightterms of use. It’s a problem that hasn’t as yet been fully abolished and certainly cannot be ignored. The internet is a wonderful medium but has opened a mammoth hole to image theft & copyright abuse.

If you’d like to contact me regarding use of my images, please drop me an email or use the comment form below.

Thank you for your cooperation and saving us both a headache! :D
