Southern England Nature Photography Association

Photographers will follow SENPA's Code of Conduct.

The photographer will retain all copyright rights in all photographic images produced.

Images will be provided to receiving organisations under the terms of a licence agreement (see SENPA Licence Agreement). In brief this stipulates:

  1. The receiving organisation will be granted a licence free of charge for non-commercial uses of the images donated. This includes, but is not limited to, newsletters and promotional material, web sites and other non-income generating uses.
  2. The licence does not provide for sole or exclusive use.
  3. Any images used will clearly credit the photographer's name and SENPA.
  4. Any commercial / income-generating uses or sole uses are not covered by the basic licence and would require separate negotiation with the photographer who may choose to charge or waive a fee.

In return for the donation of (a licence to use) images the partner organisation will grant the SENPA member access to locations and any expert knowledge that may aid the photographer in the production of the photographic work.

The images provided are not for sole use by any recipient organisation and photographers are free to use and distribute their images for other purposes unless agreed otherwise.

Where specific project briefs are issued, the Association will produce a project briefing sheet for agreement with the recipient organisation.


It shall be understood by all parties that SENPA is a photographic group run by volunteers and although we insist on adherence to its aims, objectives and code of conduct the Association accepts no liability for any of its actions or those of its members and no responsibility for its members or any consequential loss or failure to deliver any agreed objectives.

SENPA does not enter into financial transactions; all financial transactions (for example re-imbursement of expenses or licencing fees for commercial image use) are strictly between the photographers and the organisations they are working with.
