Terms & Conditions for Art Reference Use

Eye to Eye Xperience offers photographs for art reference use and are only to be used as reference for (non-digital*) artworks. Purchased images may be used solely by the person who purchased the photograph. You may use a purchased reference photo more than once. It is however not allowed to forward, share or give it to others. You may of course refer them to us to purchase their own.

*Digital art is not allowed, with the exception of digital drawing. But using the original image to create digital art by using filters, apps, edits etc. is not allowed.


Most of our images found on our social media and/or Flickr galleries are available for art reference use. (Exceptions from my social media can be images that have been purchased for 'exclusive/sole use*'). We are still in the process of uploading our images, so if the one you like is not yet available, do not hesitate to contact us.

Art reference use of our images 
Using our images as a reference for your art is not free. We ask for a small fee to support us as amateur photographers. This fee includes royalty free use* of the image(s) and (if required) a high resolution download of the images(s).

*scroll down to read more about Royalty free Licenses.


Most images are available for prices between €10,- and €30,- per photo. 


Royalty Free License
For art that is created for personal use or to be offered for sale under € 1.000,-, (one thousand) a 'Royalty Free License' is not needed or could be considered included in the indicated price for art reference use.

If you expect the price of your art piece to be over € 1.000,-, a Royalty Free License is required.

Instead of asking for a percentage of your royalties, we offer you the possibility to purchase  a Royalty Free License included into the various Art Ref. prices you can find in the shop:

If you expect your asking price will be between

€ 1.000 and € 5.000,- 
€ 5.000 and € 10.000,- 
Over € 10.000,- 

You will need to buy a royalty free licence. These Royalty free licences are included in the art prices you can find in the shop.


Your Art piece
Your art piece may be entered in competitions, exhibitions and/or sold if you have purchased the image for art reference use. You may also sell prints, merchandise etc. of your art piece.


When you purchase 5 (or more) photographs to use as a reference, you pay for 4 photos. This translates into a 20% discount on your total purchase when buying 5 or more photos in one order. Do make sure to enter the discount code '5=4' before check out.


Exclusive use for art reference / Sole Use
If you wish to create an exclusive art piece, it is possible to claim 'exclusive use' or 'sole use' for reference on a photograph. If the artist and photographer can agree on the price, the photograph will be removed from our website for art reference and will no longer be available for other artists. The copyright will remain with the photographer at all times, thus the photographer has the right to publish, print, share and sell the original photograph for anything other than art reference. 
The price for exclusive/sole use depends on the popularity of the image, so there can not be a set price for it. For more information or to request 'sole use' on your favourite photograph(s), feel free to contact us via [email protected] or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram.


Reference For Art Classes License
Art teachers can use a reference photo for their classes or online tutorials by purchasing a Reference For Art Class/Tutorial License for a Maximum of 10 student. This is Included in the price for Art Classes. For more students contact us.  the amount for every extra student is 15,-  Euro.

You may not use, reproduce, distribute, sell, modify, transmit, revise, reverse engineer, republish, post (on social media or your personal website) or create derivative works (where applicable) of said images without my prior written permission.
