Here you will find information on the types of license rights available for Monica Hahn Photography & FenceOgraphy image products and the license agreements pertaining to those products and rights.


Rights-managed (RM)
Rights-managed products are licensed with restrictions on usage, such as limitations on size, placement, duration of use and geographic distribution. You will be asked to submit information concerning your intended use of the product, which will determine the scope of usage rights granted. We can help you determine the price.

Royalty-free (RF)
Royalty-free products may be used by you multiple times for multiple projects without incurring additional fees. Royalty-free pricing is based solely on the file size of the product you need and the number of people entitled to use it (maximum 1), not the specific use. You don't have to pay any additional royalties for successive uses of a royalty-free product. However, as with all Monica Hahn Photography & FenceOgraphy Images licenses, the rights granted are non-transferable and are personal to you. This means that if you license a royalty-free product to be used in a derivative work by your client or any other person, they may not use the licensed product separately from the derivative work. Royalty-free licenses are always non-exclusive. All licenses of royalty-free products are subject to Monica Hahn Photography rules, rights and limitations. Inquire for further detail.

Editorial (RM)
Products in our editorial collections are licensed with restrictions on usage, such as limitations on size, placement, duration of use and geographic distribution. Editorial products must be used in an "editorial" manner, which means use relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest. If you wish to use an image or video from our editorial collections for a non-editorial use, you must contact a one of our studio representative to assist you. All licenses of editorial products are subject to Monica Hahn Photography & FenceOgraphy rules, rights and limitations. Inquire for further detail.

Comping files may be used to take a closer look at a particular image or to create materials for proofing presentations to clients. Comping files are not licensed for use in final projects, whether for internal or external use.
