Thank you for looking at my site. How can I be of service?
Buy a personal photo or license or see more and larger photos, please go to my online photo store: photostore.punkpioneers.com
Licensing for Merch, Editorial or Commercial Usage:
Before you contact me, please read information below this form.
Helps me respond better and faster to YOU! Thank you.
IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE THE NEEDED INFO, I CANNOT RESPOND.
I DO NOT WORK FOR FREE. A Person Can Die From Exposure.
(When was the last time you got a FREE photo from Getty Images or Wolfgang’s Vault or ? Never? Yeah, I thought so.)
Collectors: pls be very specific about your questions. I love to read your personal stories. Thank you!
Licensing for editorial, commercial or merch usage, I need DETAILS: IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE THE INFO, I WILL THROW AWAY YOUR EMAIL.
NOT all my photos are scanned high res. ‘High res’ is a vague term, so I need specifics. No point sending you jpgs and final images are too small, right? OH YOU DO NOT KNOW? Contact me ONLY when the layout person provides specs. THEN I can move forward.
Deadline, specs (all: dpi, height AND width in pixels, inches, cm), file format (jpg, png, psd, tif), color space (RGB, CMYK). IF you are a film-maker, I will make the images 1920 x 1080 at 72 dpi unless specified otherwise. I cannot move forward without knowing budget, payment process (invoicing, PayPal, wire transfer, etc).
I use wetransfer.com. I upload, you get an email with download link. Which expires quickly. PLS download when notified. IF I have to upload again, YOU WILL BE CHARGED.
DO NOT send me a contract AFTER I’ve provided photos and think we are done. BE PROFESSIONAL and provide ALL the info upfront.
Specify images if you know. Provide ALL the info you have so I can dig up the BEST photo for your needs. I am NOT a mind-reader. Work with me or NOT AT ALL.
Please do not say: send a high res file or send about 3 megs. Don’t give pixel dimensions only and neglect dpi for print, web, movies. I need resolution AND dimensions. I will size per YOUR specs. MY photos deserve that kind of personalization.
You agree to never distort, stretch nor crop my photo(s) without prior written permission. Violation is breach of contract. Treat my photos with the respect they deserve.
Please be very specific which group or images you seek. Takes TIME to look thru my files and find appropriately sized images for YOU. Thank you!
IF you cannot work within these parameters, you cannot license my photos. I wish you well in all your endeavors. After FORTY years of doing this, this is the ONLY way to maintain a PROFESSIONAL working relationship.
Interviews or press coverage: Be very specific per your needs. If you request photos, refer to Licensing section for specs re the photo resolution, sizes, and cropping. IF you misquote me, expect hellfire and brimstone. Do not read into or rewrite what I say or write. You’ve been warned.
I ONLY photographed 1976-1980. That means no, I did not shoot whomever in 1972 or 1985. ONLY August 1976 - July 1980.
Thank you for your interest. I look forward to serving you.
