All images that appear on this site, Flickr, 500px, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or any other website that includes my copyright information, my EXIF metadata, or my copyright logo seen in the photo itself (my initials usually seen in the bottom right or left corner of the image), are the sole copyright of Scott Fillmer and all personal and commercial rights are reserved.
If you are interested in using an image of mine for your own personal, commercial or non-commercial use, please contact me prior to using any image. If the image usage is truly for non-profit or personal private use, I still need to give my permission for use even if no payment has been or will be made. If you intend to use any image produced with my copyright information for commercial publication please contact me for rates and terms.
Please respect the copyright information as stated above. I have spent almost 30 years developing my skills as a photographer and any image, no matter how inconsequential it might seem at the time, is protected by U.S. copyright laws, and is not intended for public use unless otherwise stated.
I do have great respect for open source and Creative Commons and if an image is intended for those purposes it will be stated as such. I have done this many times, and most recently with the tornados that struck our area on March 3rd 2019.
Thanks for your understanding and respecting the work of all photographers and artists. Any questions please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your needs with you.
