Licensing information:

Please use the Quote Form below to receive a price quote. Generally, the price varies between $150 - $2000, depending on size, placement, circulation, use, and so on.

Rates quoted will generally be for a one-time use in a single publication. Discounts may be given for reprints, re-use, or use of more than one image.

Images will be provided in digital format. You will get a clean, accurately color balanced, high-resolution image via the internet or by CD-ROM, in TIFF or JPEG format. Images will be delivered upon receipt of payment. In rare cases, an original or duplicate slide may be made available.

Payment must be in US dollars, by credit card or by check (drawn from a US bank).

Scott uses FotoQuote software, which provides a database of established prices for the most commonly used forms of commercial image licensing.

Model releases are available for certain images. It is your responsibility to know if you need a model release or not. Please go here for Scott’s non-legal model release information.
