Image Copyright

My images are posted on my social media and website. You may not post nor use any image without prior permission or purchase of a licence (see below).

Be nice and please respect and do not infringe the copyright in the images created, we won’t have to go through the take-down and copyright infringement process.

For example a wedding couple would have the right to use their wedding images for sharing and social media, including prints or canvasses, but they do not own the copyright of the images.

Copyright and ownership of an image at all times is retained by the photographer (Andrew Cooper) at all times, throughout the world. Moral Rights Asserted. All rights are reserved.


Image licences are available:

Personal and Editorial Licence

Commercial Licence

Advertising and Merchandising Licence

Factors that will affect the licence cost will be whether single or multiple use, distribution channels (single or multiple channels), length of licence and country/countries or worldwide use.

Copyright Infringement

Please respect the copyright of any image published by Andrew Cooper Photography.

Images may not be published without prior permission, either to social media or other accounts/or in print. Nor must images be used by third-parties for their work (derivative work/art work/wall art).

An image published online is not assigning copyright of any image to a third-party, nor use of any image by an individual/company/business/organisation, or social media channel, or the subject of the image.

Where copyright infringement of image/s is found we will request that the image/s is/are removed, with a take-down notice (charges are applicable as the image has been used without permission).

Where an image is not removed on request, the social media channel will be contacted to report copyright infringement and/or a take-down notice will be issued (and costs may be incurred, for which you are liable – see below).

Please be aware that all images are monitored online and where copyright infringement is discovered you are liable for any costs associated with a take-down notice/s, legal costs and/or damages sought through the English courts.

By viewing, downloading or sharing any images you are deemed to have accepted these conditions of use of images and the copyright within them.

Copyright Infringement Charges

Where you, a business or organisation infringes the copyright of images there will be a minimum charge of £100 per image.

Publication of an image (whether in print or online in any format) without an image licence will be deemed as copyright infringement and you will be liable for the charges, even if an image is subsequently taken down following contact highlighting the copyright infringement (as the image/s are/have been used and copyright infringed).

You will be liable for any and all associated charges relating the to take-down notice and/or copyright infringement.

So the bottom line is be nice and please respect and do not infringe the copyright in the images created, so we won’t have to go through the above process.
