Commercial Licence: Jon Hodgson Sci-Fi Backdrops


A commercial license to make use of our Sci-Fi Backdrops in your commercial photography and video work.


This licence allows you to make commercial use of the images in the book of Jon Hodgson Sci-Fi Backdrops for a small fee. (Each backdrop book needs a separate licence)
There are no royalties payable, and provided you abide by the terms of the licence, it is perpetual. There’s no limit on how many projects you can use the book for in photographic and video media, but the licence is limited specifically to those media: it is specifically aimed at figure painters, figure manufacturers, figure retailers, magazines, games involving miniatures, commercial blogs and news outlets, and anywhere that makes money from photographing their miniatures or models.

And being 100% transparent? The point here is that if you make money using our images, we think it’s fair we get some of that money. We don’t want loads of it, we don’t want to make you constantly pay, and it’s about as close to a courtesy payment as we can get it.
