How to license a digital image or to buy a print.

There are two ways to purchase images from BKWine Photography, and one way to use images for free in personal blogs. Each has its own specific use:


You can license a photo for professional use, for example for publishing in magazines or books, or for promotional use.

All images are can be licensed. All images are licensed as “Rights Managed” (RM) photos. (We do not work with so-called Royalty Free (RF) images.)

RM means that you specify the use for the image and pricing is set according to those specification. The image can be used only for what has been specified. Any (ANY!) other use is subject to separate licensing/agreement.

For information, on “Releases”: none of our images have “model release” or “property release”.

Buy print

You can buy prints of any of our images. The prints are produced by a professional photography printing service based in the UK. Shipping is not included in the prices quoted on

When you buy a print you can use it solely as a print. This means, for example, that it is not permitted to reprint the image or to use it in any publication. Essentially, you buy the print solely for decoration (or whatever you choose to do with the physical print of the image).

How to buy or license – step by step:

(This looks complicated when described in a text as below. In reality it is a very simple step-by-step process. It is worth underlining again that it is not necessary to have a PayPal account – payment with credit/debit card is just as easy.)

In short, this is how it works:
1) login to your account;
2) select the image(s);
3) specify licensing/print details;
4) put the images in the cart and verify the cart
5) pay with card or with PayPal
6) you will receive an email with download link(s) for the images.

In a bit more detail:

(If this is the first time you visit the site then you will need to create an account. Click on “sign up for a free account”. This will create a “buyer’s account” on Photoshelter. Photoshelter is the online photo library platform BKWine Photography uses.)


Using photo flash embeds on blogs

There is a third possibility to use our images: using them online through our flash embeds (widgets).

With this method you can embed on a web page a slide show with a selection of our images. This type of use is free, and is mainly intended for use on personal blogs and wine blogs.

The only requirement for this kind of use is that you keep the back-link to the BKWine Photography site that appears under the flash embed.

Here is an example:–&f_link=t&f_smooth=t&target=_self&f_mtrx=t&f_l=t&tbs=4000&f_fscr=t&f_tb=t&f_ap=t&f_bb=t&f_up=t&f_bbl=f&btype=new&f_fss=f&f_2up=f&bcolor=%23CCCCCC&f_crp=t&f_wm=f&f_s2f=t&f_emb=t&f_cap=t&f_sln=t&imgT=casc&cred=iptc&feedSRC=http%3A//

This is how you do it:

Remember: you MUST keep the back-link and credit text under the flash slide show.

If you have any questions on any of the above, don’t hesitate to contact me.
