Often miss-understood, but really, it is quite simple.
Every image I capture, I own.
I can sell it to you as a digital file or sell it to you as a print …
BUT, and it's a very important BUT … I still own it It is not permissible to give it away, provide it for free use to your sponsor, use it on your business website without paying me a commensurate rate for the commercial gain that such an ‘advertising image' might provide your business or your sponsors business. And depending on the medium will depend on the value.
Check Getty images.com if you're not sure how it can vary for premium commercial images. BUT, each usage or single usage has a value, if you use it multiple times or over multiple media it has a value for all usage. So therefore it is a valuable image.
