- IMAGE LICENCE
For all image usage, please look at my agents page first – Nature Picture Library. They have many of my images and stories available for syndication. They also represent many wonderful photographers so may have some work that fits your needs. If they don’t have an image of mine that you have seen, please feel free to contact me directly via email at ‘info [at] gimesy.com’. As I am in the field often, it is sometimes difficult to answer emails quickly so I apologise for that, but please be patient, I will get back to you. If urgent and my image agent can not help you, please note that in the header, why and the timeline.
Being a professional photographer, I generally will not provide my images for free, however I may help out not-for-profits with discounts, the amount depending upon factors like use, size of the organisation, whether people in the organisation are paid etc.
- PRINT SALES:
Some of my work is available for purchase, with prices ranging from around Aus $250 to $1,000 (exc. tax and postage and handling), depending upon print size and postage. Maximum print size does vary due to factors such as the camera used at the time, the lighting conditions and whether the final image was cropped. As such, to discuss any potential print purchase, please drop me a note with the image name and the longest edge length you are considering.
- ASSIGNMENTS AND SPEAKING OPPORTUNITIES:
I am available for select assignment work (primarily conservation, wildlife and animal welfare) and also for public speaking. To discuss opportunities, please drop me an email on
‘info [at] gimesy.com’
With my photography credentials and formal teaching qualifications (Diploma of Education), I can help photographers at all levels. In addition to the occasional workshop facilitated by other organisations, from time to time upon request, I may run a variety of small workshops/classes for small groups or individuals. For example:
> Wildlife and Nature Photography Masterclass
> Getting Great Pictures In Extreme Outdoor Environments
> Photo-documenatry – creating a photo essay
> Judging wildlife photography
Melbourne Zoo workshops
> Melbourne Zoo Walking Workshop
Just for interest
> Why Images Are More Powerful Than Words
I am also happy to provide one-on-one coaching with a focus on conservation and wildlife related photography as well as photo-documentary. Rates are Aus$150/hour (ex GST) excluding travel time @$60/hour, with a minimum of 2 hours.
