  • Use of work without attribution

Generally my services require any reproduction of my work to be accompanied with attribution (i.e. “Photo: Matt Hrkac”). This is important as it gets my name out there and opens up the possibility of gaining more work.

If however you’re a client wishing to use my work without attribution, an additional fee for service will be negotiated and will apply to the base service cost.

Use of event and live performance photos without attribution will also incur a negotiated fee per use (depending on the context of where it’s to be used.)

My agreeing to this is entirely subject to my discretion.

*Reasonable expenses includes any applicable travel costs, meals, accommodation and additional equipment hire.

NB: “Funded organisations” include those who derive income from any source other than individual donations. These include for-profit entities, and not-for-profit entities such as trade unions, charities and political parties which gain at least part of their incomes from, for example, membership fees or sale of merchandise, and generally have paid staff. “Unfunded organisations” are those which rely only on small individual donations and don’t have paid staff (are entirely volunteer driven), generally including campaign and advocacy groups. Individual persons fall under the category of “funded organisations”.
