No rights are granted until payment is made. The BBA retains the right to charge interest on late payments at 2% per month from the date of invoice. All sums due to BBA must be paid in full without any withholding or deduction unless required by law.


The client shall inform the BBA of the intended use of the pictures and the BBA in its discretion shall agree to such use on a mutually agreed fee basis. After issue of an invoice that confirms a license to use to picture, the client shall be liable to pay the reproduction fee in 30 days regardless of whether it exercises any reproduction rights. Prior to the reproduction, the client may request cancellation of the license in writing and the BBA will at its discretion subject the client to a cancellation fee unless the client has taken adavantage of the direct purchase option via Photoshelter in which case all sales are final.

Credit Line

The line "© Bill Brandt / Bill Brandt Archive Ltd" must be used. We take this very seriously and the client will pay a further fee of 200% of the initial fee negotiated on failure to include this line.

A license to reproduce is not transferable or assignable in whole or in part, and is valid only for the works, dates and occurrences specified. Rights not expressly licensed, remain the property of the BBA. The licensee may not digitally alter, crop or manipulate any image licensed unless agreed in writing.
