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