Pictures are presented based on the Creative Commons international licence 4.0 summarised as “Attribution [= photographic credits] – Non-Commercial - No Derivatives”. By no means, pictures can be considered as free of rights or royalty-free. Therefore, the license above may not give you all the permissions necessary for a different use than sharing including photo credit. Some rights such as publicity, privacy or moral rights may limit how you use the material especially when the subject of the picture is someone. Thanks to contact me if you want to get out the (legal) framework.
How am I supposed to credit pictures?
Ideally, you should use something like Courtesy of laurent ‘cosmic’ henneaux [smilecollector.photos]. But the simplest and most efficient way is to refer to smilecollector.photos, to one of Facebook pages or to Instagram. You can also put a link to my personal profile.
Any particular hashtag to use?
Yes – please use at least #smlcol But there are a lot of other ones such as:
If you like my photos enough to share them, I imagine that you have no problem to help your friends/acquaintances to discover the rest of this wonderful collection. This could also facilitate media (in the broadest sense of the term) to find me easily to request a permission for publication. (Who knows? I can dream no?) Finally, a lot of European and non-European laws and treaties on intellectual property force/compel to mention the author.
Are you alone?
I’m the only smile collector working for this website, no one else will contact you in my name and there is no one else taking pictures for me. FYI, I can’t usually contact you via the Facebook’s page, so I’m usually contacting people through my personal profile (http://www.facebook.com/laurent.cosmic).
Are you doing image editing?
Not a lot for different reasons. I like the natural – no need to provide you with more explanations. And I’m not an expert on Photoshop. So, if you have an acneiform rash, I can help, but if you want to look to someone else, I’m not the good person.
If you're underage, it's MANDATORY to talk about a possible shooting BEFORE to take any decision. More info here"
