Essentials - nelsinki photo

This page contains all the essential information about usage of this site, purchasing pictures, privacy, copyright and other important stuff. This is for your benefit and mine, and for protecting the rights of all.

If you are unsure about anything then please contact me via the form on this site and I will clarify matters as best as possible.


There are two types of gallery on this site,

1) Public

2) Private

A public gallery is one that can be freely navigated by any visitor to this site. A private gallery can  only be viewed to those who have a password enabling access. Password protected galleries are used for clients who wish to control the audience that can view the pictures such as weddings, portraits or commissioned work.

I only give a password to a private gallery to the persons or persons to whom I am contracted. It is never disclosed to anyone else. I have no control with whom they share that password.

All public galleries are accessible to all visitors and, where indicated, individual pictures can be purchased through this site.


All images, including pictures in galleries, logos or any symbols with the exception of  SmugMug, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram logos are the exclusive copyright of Nelson Howe and must not be copied, downloaded or shared by any digital or analogue method without the expressed written permission of nelsinki photo.

Purchased download images are subject to the licence associated with that purchase and must not be used in any way outside the terms and conditions of that license.

Any breach of these terms and conditions may result in legal action.

No personal data is collected while you browse this site including the public galleries. Public galleries contain only my personal work which is for promotional purposes. Where images contain people such images will not be used in a defamatory way to the individuals in the images. Any images containing persons that may be used for commercial purposes will have the appropriate consent for such use from the persons in the images or, in the case of minors, will have the consent of the parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

The private galleries are accessible only to those who have the correct password for that gallery. Nelsinki Photo provide a password only to the client, authorizing person or persons for whom the photos were commissioned who will have confirmed receipt and control of that password in writing. We cannot be held responsible for the use and distribution of that password once it has been allocated to our client, person or persons for whom the pictures were commissioned.
