Thank you for your inquiry about art reference rights to Denver Bryan's
photography. Denver is a full-time wildlife photographer whose images
have appeared in countless books, calendars and advertising
campaigns over the past two decades as well as graced the pages of such
magazines as NATIONAL WILDLIFE, SMITHSONIAN, TIME, NEWSWEEK, NATURAL HISTORY, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, FIELD & STREAM, OUTDOOR LIFE, DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE and many more.
Denver began his photographic career selling his work at art shows around
the country. While doing so he developed many friendships and working
relationships with artists wishing to use his images primarily for painting
reference. Consequently, we have sold art reference rights to some of
Denver's images to artists for many years now. Selling art reference rights
has become much easier through our website at www.denverbryan.com and with
the recent enlargement of our online image database; currently several
thousand images strong and growing weekly.
Our procedure for selling art reference rights is fairly simple. Just go to the IMAGE SEARCH section of our website and
click on the 'search by subject' drop-down menu. Find the wildlife
species/categories that interest you and see what is available. Once you
find an image or images that you'd like to license for your artwork let us
know the image number via e-mail and we'll let you know if the image is
available and at what price. We only license 'exclusive art reference
rights' to Denver's website images; meaning only one artist per image.
Exclusive art reference rights usually run around $200 - $250 per image but
may vary somewhat do to the nature and uniqueness of an image. Additionally, we
often offer a discount to artists wishing to purchase the art reference
rights to several images.
Another part of our exclusive art reference licensing agreement deals with
other-than-original-artwork produced from Denver's images.....i.e. signed
print editions, etc. We require a 'print and the retail price of a
single print' of any artwork that is published in a print or other
I hope that answers most of your questions about acquiring art reference
rights to Denver Bryan's images. Feel free to contact me if you have any
