All of my photographs are copyrighted (protected by law) and require written permission from me before you copy, download, use, alter in any way.
To use any of my work without my written permission will be considered theft and action will be taken. This also includes desktops and screen savers as well as taking my photographs by copying and pasting. Featuring my work on any OTHER site than deviantArt requires PRIOR written permission from me.
All of my photographs on my dA site, are protected by copyright and intellectual property rights, which are registered and controlled by Morgan-Lou Photography.
I don´t mind if you use my photos as a reference for a drawing or a painting as long as you follow these rules:
RULES for the photos you use as a reference for a drawing or painting:
...you give proper credits by giving a link back to my original picture which you used.
...you don't use the drawing or painting for commercial purposes, without asking me.
...you don't change the concept
...you don't use the picture for which you used my photo as a reference for (site, book, cd) lay-outs etcetera. Ask me for permission first if you wanted to do this as you will need to buy a license to do this.
♥ And I'd love to see the result, so please let me know (through a note)when your artwork is finished.
My photos are NOT stock so photomanipulation of my photos are NOT allowed. Just to be sure as some people don't seem to understand: when you manipulate the original picture, by simply smudging it for example, that is NOT using a photo as a reference. That is photomanipulation. I do not give permission for that.
