I have a simplified aerial photo pricing structure with only two prices for most typical uses;
Standard price £195 each: plus VAT= £234.00
Any quantity reproduction and any printed use, any video use any printed size any web use, non transferable* licence with no time limit. (see below for conditions & info ) The license covers commercial, non commercial and educational use all at the same price. Must include a credit ( author attribution) to webbaviation with each use.
Uncredited* use price £390 each: plus VAT= £468.00 )
As above but the right for a credit to webbaviation is waived. This is the same as some big agents charge over £2000.00 for and my images are usually better!
No Complex Conditions or limitations : No need to haggle : One fixed price covers both print and website use by the licensee.
Images supplied as a JPG / JPEG which is almost universally compliant ( Works with any version of Windows, Linux, IOS & Android)
After I receive payment confirmation I will prepare the file, upload it and email you a download link. This only takes a few hours maximum, usually less than 1 hour but if I'm out of the office it may take longer so phone me if its urgent. Up to an hours work is included on each image which covers all the usual alterations such as cropping, re-sizing minor touching up. Significant digital alterations are possible including digitally creating complete images.
For credited use the Credit (Author Attribution ) is not the huge text written across some of my gallery pictures but typically one of the following somewhere in the bottom corner or adjacent the image ( NB the credit must be easily legible so minimum 11 points text size and on the same page ) ;

Both of the above licences are non exclusive which means the same image may be sold to more than one customer. Exclusive licences are available if an image has not already been sold. This is for high value marketing uses where customers require that the image is not licensed elsewhere. If you would like an Exclusive licences please email for an individual quote.
* although no credit on or adjacent the image is required, the meta data embedded within the image must remain intact to prevent the image becoming a so called "Orphan Work".
* Non transferable means you cannot grant rights to another person, organisation or business to reproduce the image.You can display the image on your own website and send people prints such as in a brochure but if any viewers or recipients of the image also want to use it for their own purposes they also need to buy a licence. You can distribute prints but you cannot transfer, grant or share usage rights to third parties. If your not sure if this covers all of your intended usage please email for clarification.
20% UK VAT ( VAT no 910 0259 74 ) is charged on all sales and unlike some big photo agents we pay UK tax on all profits
Although I normally work to a fixed price, for very large quantity purchases such as for a book of my work please email for a special quote.
Please note, although my images are cheaper than many,, they are of the highest quality. Many of my recent images have no close rival in terms of quality.
Unauthorized use: please note that in the UK usually I usually charge between double and 6x my normal price, for unauthorized use of my images, ie from £936.00 to each £2808.00 each plus vat where applicable. In extreme cases I can and will charge even more. Contrary to some opinions, this is both lawful and easily enforceable in the UK. In the USA and some other jurisdictions, unauthorized use is covered by statutory damages which can be up to $150,000 per infringement. More info on my copyright page.
All file sizes are the same price from 3mb to 123mb, see info on megabytes below.
Buy direct from the photographer
Did you know when you buy an image from a big agency they typically keep 80% of the price for themselves with the photographer getting just 20% and in some cases 10% !?!?
Why buy a low quality photograph from an agent, when you can buy a top quality photograph directly from the photographer for the same price or less?
My recent images are the best money can buy.
I use camera equipment 10x more expensive than a typical aerial photographer and have more experience than the vast majority.
When you buy a Webb Aviation image, you are buying directly from the photographer who took the image. You will be dealing personally with an expert motivated by perfection.
I also do business in € euros and have a Euro zone Euro bank account to minimize bank costs.You can also order with a simple email to [email protected] Payment can also be by cheque or BACCS.
NB My continental photographs are priced differently. The above price is for UK customers and UK images.
Here are some large samples of the 2008 onwards 21megapixel quality
All images are sold without model or property releases. If needed the client must acquire these themselves. It is a condition of use that any third party rights are respected.
Mega Pixels and Mega Bytes
Mega Pixels is the width of an image x the height of an image in pixels.
eg my Canon 1DS mkIII produces images that are 5616 pixels wide and 3744 pixels high so 5616 x 3744 = 21,026,304 Pixels, ie when rounded 21 million pixels. Mega just means million but sounds better ;o)
Mega Bytes is the size of the file on your computer. Unless compressed the two are proportional, and image with more MegaPixels will make a file with more Mega Bytes, however the two figures are not the same thing so a 50 megabyte picture is not better than a 21 megapixel image and may in fact be less than half as good!
I've been very reluctant to quote image sizes in MegaBytes (MB) as it can be very misleading as the same image can be different sizes of megabytes depending on compression. Its normal practice amongst picture agents to quote the uncompressed size and then supply a compressed JPEG thus the offer is 60MB but what you get is a 10mb download. There is a logic to this in that the difference in quality between a jpeg and tiff is negligible (although if you make lots of changes to an image change it to a tiff and only convert it back to jpg when you've finished altering it) To give you a guide I have just taken a 21 megapixel image I shot yesterday and converted it to different file sizes the results of which are:
To confuse you even more, when working with JPEGs the size will vary considerably depending on what is on the image. Large areas of a single colour such as sky make for a smaller number of Megabytes.
The images I supply are usually high quality JPEGs as they are easier to download and store. ( Many computers will not open a 16bit TIFF ) Where needed, for a huge mural print I will supply a TIFF at no extra cost if available ( NB Some images are shot as a JPG and some as a RAW )
All the images supplied are a much bigger and more detailed file than the web images used in the online gallery. You will receive the biggest JPEG image size available so more recent images. If supplied as a TIFF the older images from 2004 and 2005 are usually between 18 and 25MB for older images , around 30MB for 2006/2007 images. Older images as JPEGs are usually between 5 and 10MB but can be reduced if you have a slow connection or increased if you have a fast connection and require the best resolution.
Some special images or uses may incur a higher price than the standard price above.
This price is only applicable for customers paying in full at the time of order with no complications. Overseas customers who deduct tax from the amount will pay higher rates to compensate (eg Italy) .
High resolution digital images are particularly useful for urgent orders as we can occasionally make a digital image available within an hour (but only if were in the office and not flying that day!).
Download a free to view sample From 2015 I have been using the 50 megapixel Canon 5DSR ( click here for sample ) and form 2008 season I have been using a Canon 1DS mkIII Mega Pixel professional Digital Camera - click here for a sample. Older images are at a lower resolution: click here (2006-2007 12MP quality) for a full resolution sample and Click here (2004 & 2005 6MP quality ) (wide sample)or here (2005 8MP quality) (close up sample)to see an example of one of our digital pictures (these are a lot more compressed than the ones we normally supply but it will speed up the download ). Some older images are shot on film, mainly 645 medium format but also a few 67 medium format and 35mm negatives. These vary in how they look so please email an image reference if you need to see some quality samples before buying. Most of the older negative imagesand under 12MP digital images have now been removed from the gallery so 99.9% of the images you see are at least 12 mega pixels.

Notes on using the gallery
To find your image- Most of the gallery is is organized geographically rather than by image type. If you are searching for a landmark building your best going through the gallery- click on the county it is in then the town and then you should find it. From 2018 there is a search box, however for this to work it requires me to preprogram the keywords and it is not possible for me as a one man artist to type in every street name or post code. The search box works fine for town names of famouse buildings. You could also try a Yahoo or Google image search but unfortunately this won't help if you are searching by images type as it goes of the image name which is usually the building name or general location name (most are unnamed ).... the only way is by browsing through lots of images in the gallery. To give you some pointers the Liverpool gallery is good for terraced houses, the Wales for scenic views, Manchester for urban city images If you need some pointers please email and I can put together a list of links to the most suitable images. (This research offer is only for business customers, please include verifiable contact details as it can take quite some time finding the ideal image)
Trademarks/ third party copyright. As a photographer I am not qualified to give legal advice on the very complex matter of Trademarks and third party rights. Non of the images include a property waiver or model release and you need to be aware that some of the images depict items where trademarks are involved. For example most of the football clubs have their names registered as a trademark. Similarly I have a number of shots of TV locations and the name of the TV program is trademarked. As I understand it my art is allowed as fair use of a Trade mark also educational and editorial use such as my website or a magazine / newspaper article but if you intend to do something more commercial then you may require the permission of the trademark holder. For example if you wish to re sell one of my images and you want to write the trademarked name on the product being sold you would definitely need permission from the Trademark holder. In some countries it may even be the case that a building is registered as a trade mark or something depicted on a picture is subject to copyright additional to my copyright of the image. The law on copyright, trade marks , privacy and other third party rights is constantly being changed and reinterpreted and I can give no assurance that any use is free of any third party rights or complications. Note carefully that I do not accept any liability for any claims resulting from the use of the images (see my terms) so if somebody sues you for what you do with my pictures I don't accept any liability. Always get legal advice before using them.
