Licensing FAQ
What is a photo license?

A license is basically an agreement to purchase rights to use a photo for specific (commercial) purposes. The photo license states the use (how you will use photo) and the price charged for the use. Andrew Prokos Photography is the ‘Licensor’ and the party purchasing the rights is the ‘Licensee’.

What is the difference between licensed (rights-managed) and royalty-free photos?

Royalty free photos allow you to pay one flat price for an photo and use it any way you like. Licensed (also known as ‘rights managed”) photos are priced by use. When you license a rights managed photo, you aren’t buying the photo, but rather the rights to use that photo in a specific way and for a specific period of time. In general, most high quality photos are rights managed, while lower quality photos tend to be royalty free.

How much does licensing a high-resolution photo cost?

The cost of licensing a photo is not fixed and depends on several factors, including the intended use of the photo, the photo size, the duration of use, and the distribution of the photo. Since these factors are unique to each license we need to know the usage details to calculate pricing. 

How do I request a price quote?

To calculate the licensing fee for you we will first need to know how you will use the photo. In the tabbed menus below you will find most types of commercial uses, including advertising, editorial, publishing, and display use. Click on the tab for your type of use the information we will need to know will appear on the right. To request pricing please contact us using the Inquire button found on each photo’s page, or from our main Contact Us page. If your use is not shown on the list below please contact us and we will assist you.

How do you calculate pricing for your photo licenses?

Our pricing is determined by using photo pricing software and by consulting photo industry pricing charts. FotoQuote is the industry standard software for stock photo pricing and uses a database of recent sales across the country to generate a price range for an photo license. Pricing for any particular rights-managed (“RM”) photo is rarely the same as for a similar photo found elsewhere, but does usually fall within a range of around 20% above or below pricing found elsewhere.

When comparing photo pricing from various sources it is important to compare RM photos to other RM photos, and not to royalty-free (“RF”) photos. RF photos are based on a different pricing model and are invariably of lower quality than RM photos. Andrew Prokos Photography only offers the highest quality RM photos, we do not aim to compete with RF stock houses nor to match their pricing.

Do you have a minimum licensing fee?

Yes, our minimum licensing fee is $300. Exceptions may include certain editorial uses or non-profit uses.

What file format and resolution are your licensed photos distributed in?

High resolution photos are distributed to our customers as as high-resolution jpegs, which is the industry standard. We license 300 ppi photos for print use and 72 ppi photos for web and broadcast use. All photos are distributed in 8bit RGB color mode and have an embedded Adobe RGB 1998 color profile.

All licensed photos are also captioned with the photo’s photo ID#, title, description, copyright info, our contact info and the license details. This info is also embedded in the file. Please note: all licensed photos are cropped according to the usage before they are distributed to customers.

How will I receive the high-resolution photo once I have purchased a license?

An account is automatically created on our server for each new customer that purchases an photo license. Once payment has cleared an email containing the photo download instructions and password is automatically sent to your email address.

I am a designer, how do I obtain a high-res image for comping purposes?

We will be happy to provide watermarked high-res images for comping purposes, please contact us with your request.

I can’t find a particular photo I am looking for, does that mean you don’t have it?

Most of our archive is available on our website, but we do occasionally remove or replace images. If you are not able to find a particular image please contact us and we will be happy to check our archive for you.

Can I purchase digital files to make photo prints myself?

We do not license our photos for the purpose of making fine art prints for home or office decor. Our high-resolution stock photos are available exclusively for editorial and advertising purposes. Fine art prints of the photos found in our collection may be ordered by contacting us.
