What is a Commercial Context?

Usage in a commercial context is including (but not limited to) for example editorial usage and advertisements in magazines, newspapers, company brochures, billboards etc. It includes both online usage, usage within an app, on the web, and in print. Usage is considered commercial  if it is directly or indirectly associated with generating income for you or any third party.

Any commercial usage of my images will incur a licensing fee.

Personal and Educational Use

Personal and educational use is any use that is not in a commercial context. For example, if you want to use one of my images for teaching a photography class, for your own study work, or in a scientific publication, this is considered educational. Please select ‘Personal’ in the context of usage section of the License Request Form, and I will inform you what the licensing conditions will be. In some cases, the license may even be free of charge. If you make any of my work publicly available, you must attribute it correctly to Klaus Herrmann and farbspiel photography in any case (including free licenses).

What do you get in return for the license fee?

Purchasing a license gives you the right to use the image(s) under the exact conditions defined in the licensing agreement. Unless explicitly agreed otherwise in written form:

  • You will not have the copyright to the images! The copyright will remain with me at all times.
  • You will also not have the right to license or sell the image(s) to any third party.

If you require any of these rights, please state this explicitly in the License Request Form.

You are in Doubt if Your Use is Commercial?

Don’t be shy! Contact me at and we can figure that out together.
