All images taken by Sinclair Photography and displayed on this website are protected under copyright law and must not be copied.
The images in our "gallery and shop" are for viewing purposes only and show a low resolution version of the image. Unfortunately our images need to be watermarked. The message that is displayed is aimed at those who continually steal from our galleries and not our genuine customers.
Watermarked images have a very clear message. If you take an image from this website without first paying for it you are breaking copyright laws and we class it as theft. For every image taken without permission we will send you an invoice at £10 per image taken; so if you take an image without paying for it, please don't be horrified when you receive a bill.
Pay the invoice and you will receive an un-watermarked digital file of the image taken in exchange.
Failure to pay within 7 days will result in further action being taken and we will report you to the social/photo media website concerned in line with the breech in their terms and conditions.
Your details will also be passed to other event photographers along with screen shots showing those images you have taken from their websites as well.
We do not want watermarked images used as free advertising.
Please respect our work - if you don't we will simply stop photographing you. When you purchase an image
You buy an image for private use only. It does not buy you the copyright which remains the property of Sinclair Photography at all times.
You are not allowed to copy a printed image or use it for anything else without permission. This includes entering competitions, for sale adverts or using it for promotional work, without the permission of Sinclair Photography.
If unsure please ask - it's a simple courtesy.
All print images are now supplied with their small digital jpeg files for personal use. These images are intended for on line use only and credit must be given where appropriate. These images are not to br printed from.
Images are occasionally printed on anti scan paper - we will not replace damage caused by scanning an image.
