First, Thank you and respect for taking the time to learn more about the use of my digital media. Unfortunately I deal with copyright infringement all the time, so here’s the business. Don’t forget to be cool, respectful, and ask when in doubt.
Photographs, Videos and Audio are available to be licensed for commercial use. Pricing may vary depending on the use and distribution.
Non-Profit & Educational Use
I enjoy supporting non-profit and educational institutions. I offer license discount rates for registered non-profit organizations and educational institutions. Licensing may be free in some cases depending on the context of use.
Creative Commons License
You will never find my digital media (Photographs, Videos and Audio) under creative commons license, if you’ve obtained any of my digital media through such license, please help contact me as soon as possible. I contract a service that performs reverse image searches to protect my copyright.
Social Media – Commercial
Using my Photographs, Videos and Audio on social media platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, etc. by commercial entities, is the same as “Commercial Use” and must be licensed for that purpose.
Social Media – Personal
Sharing my photography, videos and audio social media accounts must be accompanied by a link back to www.scottslone.com. However, sharing content from my website and podcast via built-in social media applications that link back to www.scottslone.com or social media pages. Failure to attribute my digital media content properly may result in a takedown notice to the web host. Basically, credit where credit is due. Thank you!
Journal Articles / Technical Papers

Permission is required to copy or manipulate all or portions of my Photographs, Videos and Audio in derivative productions or artworks. Always good to just ask if you’re not sure.
Copyright Infringement Policy
Use of my Photographs, Videos and Audio content without a valid license, is considered copyright infringement and violation of US copyright laws. I make my living from film and photography, I cannot afford to be lenient with infringements on the part of for-profit companies. Such infringements are illegal, they waste my time, and devalue my work.
