You are free to use up to five or six images from the site for any personal non-profit, educational purpose. This would primarily be your personal home page, but could also be, for example, one-time use for an offline presentation. You must replicate any copyright notice that may appear under the image if it is used on another web site or in an offline presentation. Provide credit to "masters-of-photography.com" as the source for each scan. If the images are used on a web site, display the credit in the form of a link to the site, i.e. "Scan courtesy of Masters of Photography".
It is imperative that you do NOT link directly to the images in their current location. You must download each image used and host it on your own web space. NOTE: The only exception to this would be if you link to the entire page, including the Masters of Photography logo, along with the image, e.g. <A HREF="http://www.masters-of-photography.com/A/adams/adams_monolith.html">
Yes, this is just a start. I want to add to the number of images and articles for the photographers currently online, as well as increase the number of photographers included in the site. A partial listing of additional artists under development includes:
You are welcome to link to Masters of Photography, and thanks! You can paste this link if you wish:
<A HREF="http://www.masters-of-photography.com">Masters of Photography</A>
If YOUR site specifically concerns one of the photographers featured at Masters of Photography, and I deem it worthy of inclusion in the Resource listing, I will add it. There is no place, however, for "reciprocal links" to your personal or general interest site.
I don't mean to be cynical, but based on my experience with Artchive emails, dozens of them, schools and universities seem to think that research consists of emailing me to ask if I can give them any info on artist XYZ. If I have information on these photographers, trust me, it is online. If you don't find it at this site, it sounds like you need to be spending more time in the library.
I will be adding photographers and images to the site as time goes on. Please come back often to see if your particular favorite has been included. See also "Are you going to add more photographers and images to the site?"
Certainly, although I accept no commission-based advertising. If you are interested in buying ad banner space at CPM rates, please .
Remember that the images are to be used only for non-proft, personal, educational purposes. The print quality will not be high resolution, in any case.
With the desired image displayed in your browser, RIGHT-click on it with your mouse and select "View Image". The URL of the page should now end in ".jpg". Simply select "File", then "Print". These are Netscape instructions, MS Internet Explorer should be similar.
Separate graphics software can provide better printing capability. Download the image to your hard drive and consult the software's help file for instructions.
Sorry, I am no expert in photographic technique. Gerald Panter, however, has offered to field such questions for us. Visit his web site at http://www.gmpanter.com and drop him a line.
Hey, I take pictures, too, you know...do you see any of MINE on this site? Seriously, this site is intended to present the Masters of Photography as they are known to the ages through their artistic efforts. If you are a contemporary photographer, please contact a gallery, or have someone design a site for you.
I am not an expert in art evaluation. I suggest you contact Charles Sherman at his web site, or by phone at (800) 410-6977.
It is connected in the sense that Mark Harden designed and developed both sites, but Masters of Photography is its own entity, with its own domain name and graphical appearance. Naturally, many people will be interested in both the paintings and sculpture at The Artchive and the photographs at Masters of Photography, and I invite you to enjoy the art at both sites.
I do not license these images for commercial use under any circumstances.
Masters of Photography includes both public domain and copyrighted works of art. The copyrighted works are presented under the Fair Use Provision of the Copyright Act. Holders of image copyrights are highly encouraged to provide me contact information, so that I may properly refer the many requests for licensing, evaluations, original artwork availability, etc. that I receive. My goal is to assure that the site helps copyright owners to realize financial benefit from the availability of their images in Masters of Photography.
First, a disclaimer that I am not an intellectual property attorney, and the information below is just what I have informally learned regarding copyright of art images...
Art copyright falls into two categories under the Berne Convention, copyrighted works and public domain works:
If the artist is alive or has been dead less than seventy years, all rights to reproductions of his or her work reside with the artist or his estate. A couple of good starting points for obtaining rights are:

The best web site for copyright information is Benedict O'Mahoney's The Copyright Website.
Sandra White has a career information site (http://www.greatsampleresume.com/Photographer-Career/) that provides useful information to photography students, photographers seeking employment and for aspiring photographers. The site provides information about career as a Photographer including job outlook, education and training requirements, job description, salary, benefits, job responsibilities and job duties.
