PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY

We appreciate the effort it takes to produce good photographs. Like all artists, photographers take real pride in their work and frequently view it as an extension of themselves. Therefore, we'll do our best to comply exactly with all requests and restrictions that may accompany a photo provided to our magazine.

We would appreciate the courtesy of being notified at the time of submission if any photo is under consideration for publication elsewhere. Although we do not expect exclusive rights to any photo, this courtesy will help prevent the embarrassment of simultaneous publication.

Although a photo, once published, is protected by Suburban Life's copyright, it is understood that the photographer may use the photo for personal or professional purposes. It is also understood that by sending Suburban Life a photo, the photographer is granting the magazine permission to publish the photo.

Certain editorial or advertising elements require that the magazine commission a photographer for specific work. Suburban Life will compensate hired photographers with a predetermined rate that both the magazine and photographer agree upon in advance of the work.

It is understood that while Suburban Life receives first rights to publish a commissioned photo, the photographer may then use the photo for personal or professional purposes, though not to be used for or against the photo subject’s business competitors.

Suburban Life reserves the right to republish a commissioned photo in Suburban Life or in material and media related to the magazine, such as the website. Credit will usually accompany any reprinted photo. Suburban Life’s publisher retains the right to use images of the pages from previous issues of the magazine, which may include a photographer’s image, for any purpose.

A photograph commissioned by and published in Suburban Life magazine becomes the shared property of the magazine and the photographer. Anyone requesting use of the image for professional use must aquire permission from both the photographer and Suburban Life's publisher. Oftentime, photographers will charge a fee for additional usage rights to their photographs, such as use on a business' website or marketing materials outside of Suburban Life magazine.
