Photography and words by Gail Ward are all subject to a license for their use. Terms and Conditions for commissions and assignments are agreed prior to engagement on a client specific basis. Terms  and conditions for photography can include, but are not limited to, the research, production and provision of images plus location and travel costs, expenses,  usage by client for the agreed license/timescale.  I do not license images for 'royalty free or free re-use for perpetuity'.

A 'Rights to use' license is agreed on a client specific basis for a specific purpose and time frame for a fee depending on, for example,  the assignment or location and usage requirement.

Copyright remains with Gail Ward and is NEVER assigned elsewhere. Please note that images distributed for PR are usually subject to terms and conditions agreed  with both Gail Ward and the PR Company/Agent.
