Since I get many questions about commercial use and not always manage to answer in time I decided make things easier and post and addition to my stock rules.

This new structure comes into effect from  Saturday, 20th of October 2012.
All that has been discussed up to this date is not applicable to these conditions.

Commercial products you can use my stock  images for:
-Magazine covers,
-Album covers,
-Book covers
-CD covers
-Merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, puzzles and such.

General stock rules:
:bulletorange: Credit me as model\photographer, provide a link to my page I know it is not always possible to post a link in this case I want that you mention my name Janna Prosvirina as model\stock provider
:bulletorange: Let me know about the project and send information about it via DA Note or to my  e-mail
:bulletorange: Do not use my stock to produce anything fetish, hate, morbid, profane or pornographic I will ask you to remove your "artwork" if you do anything like this.

:star:You can use my stock images commercially under following conditions.:star:
:bulletorange: Follow my general rules
:bulletorange: Credit me as stock provider\model
:bulletorange: Donate towards my Stock Fund by sending money via PayPal to my address

Why do you need to donate and how much?

I set  the minimum donation at $10USD.

If you want to use more images from my gallery for commercial projects the rates are following:
2-4images  $25 USD
5-9 images $ 50 USD
10 + or more images $75 USD

How to donate?
PayPal ->send money option->type my e-mail
All the donators will get a constant feature in my journal.
Just mention your DA name in PayPal comment box.

Alternative /options:
:bulletgreen: There is an option of sending me the commercial product you used my stock for instead of making a donation.  You can send me a copy of a magazine, book, calendar, art print anything you did using my stock image which I can hold in hands and show to my people. In this case you don't need to donate to my stock fund, and you can use my images free of charge.
:bulletgreen: Option two: you can pay with DA points which I will use to buy DA subscription. The amount of points should be equal to USD which you would pay in USD dollars for my images. 1 USD = 80 points
1 image = 800 DA points

Rules for prints.
:bulletgreen:Selling prints at DA is  OK and it is free.

I hope I managed to answer all main questions here. However, if you need to ask me anything concerting commercial stock use, please contact me via DA Note or by sending me an e-mail to you can also contact me via FB.

Hi is it ok if I use your models for things like this?…

If I use your pictures as a model for drawings is that alright? It's not commercial or anything.

hy there would it be ok to donate as soon as I actually start earning?
Up to now I only sold postcard sized prints, (earnings 10 cents :p)
but I don't want to be restricted in case someone actually wants to buy.
I am honest, should I start earning big time where your stock is involved, I would pay a fair amount :)

I am sorry for the late reply. If you sell small amonts and at selling sites like Deviantart, Zazzle, Redbubble and such where you get only royalties from sales you DO NOT need to donate anything to me.  Once rish and famous you can come to me and say thanks but please don't worry now I understand, I won't bite you for this'commercial' use where you hardy get enough to cover costs involved in creating your artwork:)  Good luck and high sales <3

You're photography is amazing and has caught my eye. I am an author, and I design my own book covers. I live in the states, but would be willing to send a copy of the published book I may use your artwork on. Is this acceptable? I can give you credit toward the design of the cover in the book, as well as your site link (my books sell for Kindle Fire as well as paperback). If the cover helps to sell more books, I will be willing to return again and again, and add donations to your account. I will of course post a link to you on the finished design for approval. I write in the horror genre, but nothing grotesque...mostly supernatural and strange unexplainable occurences. Let me know if this is acceptable please :)

I have question - me and my friend have plans to do artbook with our works, and if I would use some of Your stock photos as pose reference what You would want me to do in return ? Ofc You will be credited there :)

Sorry for the late reply I have a mess in my comments( this is why I prefer notes lol)^^;

If you want to use the work based on my stock commercially, I would like to get a copy of the product or a signed print of your work based on my stock. A usual small photo print would be ok=)
If you make the book just for your pleasure ( not commercial project) you should have fun = nothing in return:XD:

Well we plan to sell this sketchbook on conventions (we hope someone will buy it xDD) so I will send You one copy when we will end it...thus we didn't do any progress by last year ^^;

OK, agreed:XD:

It's great that you're stating your rules that clearly. Just one thing: there is a typing mistake with the date, namely "Saturday, 20th of October 1012" instead of 2012.

oh... ^^; Thank you for letting me know:D
everfae Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
Nice! :) Does commercial products cover commissions too? Just checking ^^
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
well, it depends on what you are to do with the final work. If you send your commissioned work you did based on my stock to the customer and got payed for it once it is all fine, you don't need to pay for the use of my stock (you can still do a symbolic small donation if you want but you don't need to). if you about to sell prints using this image later, I want to get one small print signed by you please, it would be a great addition to my collection(small by now):XD:
everfae Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Thanks for clearing that up! I don't plan to do commissions or even prints any time soon, i just wanted to hear your terms on it, just incase I ever do use your stock in a commission. Thank you! :love:
I hope your collection continues to grow!
