All of the images, sound recordings, and videos used on this site are protected by copyright, but most of them can be shared for free for non-commercial uses.

Using Images Credited to Photographers other than Gary Nafis

(The name is printed on the picture and in the text below.)

Many photographers have generously contributed their images to this web site for free. Please be aware that they maintain all rights to the use of their images and that they all have their own guidelines for how they can be used. You need tocontact them to get their permission for commercial or non-commercial use. Please don't contact me to ask permission to use their work. I can't give it.

Below is a list of these photographers with links to their email address.

If you do not find the email address below, if you find a name without an email link, or if you write to an address listed here and you do not get a response from the photographer, please do not use the image.  If you try the address listed here and find that it is invalid or if you get no response then I doubt I be able to help you because I probably don't have any other address for them. Many of the images are old and photographers rarely notify me of their email address changes.

(The name is printed only on the picture itself with no name credited in writing directly below the picture.)


Free Use

In the interest of advancing public awareness and appreciation of reptiles and amphibians and to encourage their preservation, I allow the free use of up to 10 of my images for non-commercial and educational use, following the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0) license. (I have added a link to this license in February, 2011, but it does not change any previous useage rights previously given here.)

If your for-profit company is getting paid by an organization to help them with any kind of environmental education (this does not include Public School teachers, etc.) then you are selling a service to your client so I consider your intended use to be commercial use. If your company is doing true pro bono work for a non-profit, then email me for permission for free usage.


This free use is limited to images that you can download directly from the web site without asking me to spend my time doing anything other than responding to your request to use the images.

Please do not ask me to send you high-resolution images or to fax or mail you release forms or other paperwork or to do anything I can't do quickly online. I will be glad to do all that and more if you purchase the use of an image.




If you want to use more than 10 of my images, then email me for my permission.

(I added this 10 image limit in March 2010 after seeing some non-commercial sites using hundreds of my images without permission. This site was not created to be mined and modified into another site or project.)

Please do not Hotlink any images on this site (ie. do not post a direct link to one of our photos or videos on another site.) Download an image file and host it on your own server, then link to that image file. But feel free to link to any web page on the site.

Please credit any usage appropriately, citing Gary Nafis and CaliforniaHerps.com. I like to know how the images are used, so please email me with the details and send me the URL if you are using them online so I can check out your site and maybe link back to it if that is relevant.


Buying the use of Images © Gary Nafis for Commercial Purposes

Commercial image use purchases are the main source of income this web site generates to help keep it in operation.

Please contact me to discuss using any images © Gary Nafis for commercial purposes. For a low price I can provide you with a digital image of much higher quality than you can download from the web site.

My photographs from this web site have been donated to or purchased for use online, in children's books, college textbooks, field guides, calendars, scientific journals, home-schooling materials, magazines, newspapers, libraries, state and federal government agency reports, U.S. military training guides, company brochures, corporate training manuals, computer training programs, outdoor signs, billboards, zoos, museums, aquariums, nature centers, preserves, state and national parks, airport displays, environmental organization newsletters, DVDs and more.
          
Using Sounds and Video

Unless otherwise noted, all sounds and video on this web site are © Gary Nafis and may not be copied or used without permission.

Please contact me if you want to purchase the use of a sound or video or use it for a non-profit or educational use.


Contacting Contributing Photographers

Below is a list of the names of contributing photographers (in alphabetical order by last name.) Clicking on a name link opens your default mail program and inserts an email address. If you want to use another mail program, right-click or control-click on the name and copy the address then paste it. If there is no link, the photographer either does not want to be contacted or did not provide an email address.

As an attempt to prevent the collection of email addresses from this list by email harvesting spammers, since June 2008 I have
added a # symbol before each email address.
  You need to remove this # symbol when you send email to a particular email address. I apologize for the inconvenience. I don't know if it works, but it's the only solution I have come up with so far.
If anyone on this list thinks they are getting spammed because their email address is listed here - let me know if you want me to remove or change it, and I will.
