I've been busy the last few days weeks months years and have been lousy at responding to messages. Most messages are just asking about using photos. ...And so to that I say: read below ↓↓↓




What licenses do I use? - Some photos are fully copyrighted, but most of my photos are licensed cc-by-nc-sa. "cc" means it's the Creative Commons license, "by" means that you must provide attribution, "nc" means that commercial use is prohibited, and "sa" means that the photo & any derivatives retain the same license at all times. Fully copyrighted photos generally include photos in my gallery & photos of people... check toward the bottom-right of each photo's page to see what the license is. Note that photos with people as a primary subject are inherently forbidden from republishing without explicit authorisation & model release.


General Use - If the images are cc-by-nc-sa & do not contain anyone as a primary subject... read on: to comply for non-commercial use, include a caption, endnote, footnote, etc. reading "Photo by Andrew Bossi, Flickr". That's it... easy. Linking back to my photo would also be much appreciated, and since I love to see where my photos end up: feel free to leave a link or note on the photo's page of where you use it.


Commercial Use - I have the non-commercial restriction in place to prevent people from primarily selling my photos directly. I tend to be receptive toward commercial usage for substantively unrelated uses, but message me to be sure.


Wikipedia - For anyone that wants to use my photos on Wikipedia (which last I checked, requires that photos permit commercial use): just message me and I'll see about dropping specific photos down to cc-by-sa.


Paid Use - If you wish to use my photos without attribution, use any fully copyrighted photos, use any photos with people as a primary subject, or sell my photos as a primary product: send me a message to discuss compensation.


Change of License Notes - All cc-by-sa licenses were changed over to cc-by-nc-sa on 14 March 2010. Any commercial usage in use prior to this time continues to be permitted.


My Photos


When it comes to photos, I am by no means a pro. I'm an engineer, so my artistic talent is befitting of our stereotype. I primarily use Flickr as a place to store my photos. So if you find a good one among the thousands, I'll be more than happy. My style is generally of landscapes / city scenes or transportation photos I take for work... I do some stuff for local theatre groups, and through it all I try to be the least invasive I can be -- I rarely use flash. In the most narcissistic manner there is, I keep a gallery of the images I believe to be among my better ones:

Group Invitiations - If you would like for my photos to be added to a group, please provide that "Add It" button in your comment on the photo. I haven't the faintest idea how to easily go about adding them manually.


Personal Sociability - I don't comment often... I'm trying to do that more. We'll see how that goes, but my lexicon consists of engineering terms; not artistic adjectives. So forgive any comments that sound repetitive.
