Image Copyright without the Small Print.

Let’s be honest: Image copyright is a tedious topic! And that’s why we don’t hide it in the small print. We discuss the planned usage and the resulting costs with you in person. Our invoices reflect these arrangements clearly and comprehensibly. This procedure might take a bit longer, but in the end, you’ll have rights – rights tailored to suit your needs.
