Information for Tutors/Teachers

If you would like to download a photo and use it as part of a tutoring lesson/course, in which your students use the photo too, please get in touch with us. You will need to purchase a Tutoring Licence which will allow all of your students to use the photo for a fair price. You would download the photo as normal, then get in touch with us to let us know how many students will be using the photo, we will then send you an invoice for the additional Tutoring Licence fee for that photo. The cost of this licence for one photo is $1 per student. 

If you are using a photo simply for a tutorial video, and not sharing the image for others to use, there's no need to purchase an additional licence. If any of your fans/followers would like to use the same image, they would need to download the photo themselves.
