Creative Commons

Homewood Photography works to promote the university and its many constituent parts. To that end, it makes available free of charge a limited collection of its images for use. Please credit Homewood Photography [provide link] when using these images in your publications. The current collection of these photos are available in our Creative Commons Gallery.

News Photography

Photos needed for news purposes (for News and Information/JHU Gazette) are taken routinely by Homewood Photography and may be reused by other university units at no cost. News photos currently available may be viewed in our News Gallery.

Original Photo Shoots

Photos created in original photo shoots are for unlimited use by the client in official university communications. The rights are nontransferable (except in the case of news photos). Clients retain first-time rights, i.e., clients have the right to debut the images created for them. After the image has been published, such first-time rights have been exercised.

Rights

Once non-transferable rights are purchased via custom photo shoot or stock photo order, you may reuse for University promotional purposes.

  1. Distribute, sell, or share any images produced by Homewood Photography without prior consent from/arrangement with Homewood Photography.
