Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I buy a framed print ?

A. No, we are sorry but we do not offer a framing service, although we can recommend a framing service to you.

Q. How soon after I order a print will it be delivered ?

A. Under normal circumstances, provided there are no issues or complications, we would expect to have the item shipped out to you within 1-2 working days of receipt of the order. This assumes that Christmas, New Year or other bank holidays do not intervene. If there is a problem, we will notify you immediately upon receipt of your order. Prints are normally shipped by Royal Mail First Class Post Medium Parcel Service, so you should expect to receive your print a day or two after we have notified you of its shipment. If you have an urgent order and require a print on a shorter timescale than that described above then please contact us and discuss your requirements with me before placing an order. We would also remind you that we are based in a Highland location so postal services can take longer than one might normally expect in the rest of the UK.

Q. Are prints available from any image other than shown on the site ?

A. No, we only produce prints from images which have been obtained from larger format or digital cameras. Whilst many of our images have a historical relevance and are suitable for information and reproduction in other forms such as publication in a book, on-line article or magazine, sadly they are neither of the size nor the resolution to produce high quality prints.

Q. Can I purchase an image in digital format to print myself ?

A. No, quite simply for reasons of security and protection of copyright.

Q. Can I use an image for commercial purposes and what will it cost ?

A. You may use an image for commercial purposes, but you will need to speak to us before you do. Our charges are reasonable but they depend upon the use and the length of time for which the image is required.

Q. Can I use an image on my website ?

A. You may use an image on a website, but please ask permission before you do. We do not normally charge for such use, but ask that the image be properly copyrighted and accredited. We also ask for a link back to this website.

Q. Can I copy a library image for personal use at home or for a project at work ?

A. You may save or print images for private use and enjoyment at home. However, they must NOT under any circumstances be reproduced, published, altered or used for commercial purposes without our written permission. No matter how well intentioned, breach of copyright is theft, and we will initiate proceedings against any offender.

Q. Will you sponsor my fundraising activities in the mountains ?

A.In a word, NO.

We receive numerous requests each year from individuals and groups who wish to support a deserving cause by raising funds through the commercial sponsorship of some mountain related challenge or event. We admire these people for giving of their time and energy to good causes, but we are fundamentally opposed to any event, however small or well organised, which uses the mountain environment as some kind of resource or objective.

We regard the mountain environment as one which is under severe threat from a number of directions, and it is our policy - through our images - to encourage people to understand, care for and protect that environment. Having worked in the mountains for more than 40 years, we are very aware of the damage that 'sponsored' events can cause to the mountain environment, the risks that they place on the participants and the disruption that they do cause to local people and businesses.

We are not alone in these views, which are now widely held by the climbing and walking public and generally supported by their official representative bodies.
