My landscape and botanical photography has been published in numerous electronic and printed periodicals and books; including MSLiving.comGrist.com, Birds & Blooms Magazine (‘Beautiful Fall Gardens’ Bookazine, 2011, published by Reader’s Digest), Dutch Gardening Magazine, Groei & Bloei (2012), McGraw Hill Science (online & in print), The Brooklyn Botanical Garden Catalog, The New England Wildflower Society, and others. If you would like to use my images —online or in print— please contact me via email: michaela (at) the gardeners eden (dot) com. In all commercial applications, a licensing fee will apply.

 Please do not re-post or otherwise use my photographs without asking. I love sharing my photos here online, and I often allow others to use them free of charge. But when my photos are taken and used without permission —except when writing about my site, my design work or my photography— it feels a lot like stealing. US Copyright law agrees with me on that, and use of intellectual property without express permission is considered copyright infringement. Uncertain of how copyright law or the fair use doctrine work? Visit the United States Copyright Office’s website for help. And please remember that even if you are referencing or discussing a photographer’s work (or any other artist), as permitted under the fair use doctrine, you must always properly credit the photographer (it’s also good to link their site). Not only is it the law, it’s also common courtesy.

    Awesome blog. Awesome photography tips. I love it here. Thank you!

  • Hi Michaela,
    I just met Ted Dillard by phone and he told me about your wonderful blog.
    I’m tempted to spend more time than I should today getting lost in your digital pages. Thanks so much for this resource. I’ll revisit often.

    Hi Michaela.

    I found you via your comment on Design*Sponge. I liked your photography copyright tips there. I am starting two very different blogs soon and while one will have minimal photography, the other will (eventually) have oodles – all my own. So, your tips were timely. I liked that you link to the US Copyright Office above too. Very thorough.

    In the meantime, I’ve discovered your great blog!

    Thanks!
    Lauren

    @ Lauren. Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to follow the link back and visit my site. Yes, copyright law and how it applies to artwork online is a subject of great interest to me. Whenever I see a site with uncredited/unlinked artwork, I feel that I am looking at stolen goods. I guess that’s because, I AM looking at stolen goods. I love that Grace covered the subject in her Biz Ladies column on Design*Sponge, and appreciate others, like Frolic, for doing so as well. I figure, the more often people write about the subject, the more likely people will appreciate that not only is copyright law, the law, but also crediting and asking permission for use are just a matter of simple respect! I look forward to visiting your new blog. Please send me an email when you are up and running. All the best, Michaela
