Welcome to Semmick Photo! First things first, I am a stock and freelance photographer creating images semi-professionally since 2011. I have a big passion for photography and travel. Two hobbies that go very well together. I offer a variety of images including landscapes, urban scenes, candid people and concepts. On this site you will find my blog, my stock portfolio and my fine art portfolio. Please note that for searching and browsing the images you don’t need an account. Registration is only needed when you want to purchase an image.
How to search:
You will see the search box on all pages of my website located at the top. Just type your search term in the field and hit search. If you don’t immediately find what you need just add or remove keywords to broaden or narrow the search. Alternatively you can click Image Categories in the main menu bar and choose the category you are interested in and then browse through the images. I also offer discounted collections. If I do not have the image you are looking for on Semmick Photo, images of my fellow photographers in my Symbiostock network will be displayed for your convenience. Why does it work like this?

Purchasing images, how does it work?
Did you find an image on Semmick Photo that you would like to purchase? Great! Its quick and easy, two words that just put a smile on your face. Just click register in the top right menu and create your username and a password will be emailed to you. Then just log in using those details. If you already have an account, just log in. It works this way, because when you come back to the site, the images will be available in your account for downloading.
When you click the image thumbnail, the full preview image will open, select the size you want to purchase. The image is now added to your cart. If you clicked the wrong size, no worries, you can edit your cart before checking out with PayPal. If you want more images added to the cart, just keep searching and repeat the same process. When you are ready to purchase the images you have chosen, you can click the green download button, or just click on your username in the top right corner next to the shopping cart. Now you can check if you have all the images and in their correct sizes. TIP: before you purchase, I encourage you to first click the link under the price and size options, or in the main menu bar, called EULA to be certain the image you want to license falls in the Permitted Uses category.
Please note: Read the licenses carefully, there are limitations of use. You can always contact me to negotiate a custom license if you need one.
Editorial images: Use of editorial images in advertising or for promotional purposes is prohibited. Editorial images are not cleared for commercial use. Semmick Photo does not hold the proper releases for commercial use.
OK, now you are all set, just confirm you agree to the EULA of your choice and hit the Pay Now button. This will take you to the PayPal site, where you can use your PayPal account OR pay by credit card. All credit card payments are handled directly by PayPal in a secure environment. PayPal is PCI compliant. In the right section of the PayPal window, choose your method of payment. If you do not have a PayPal account and do not wish to use your credit card, you can sign up for a PayPal account here.
Once you complete the transaction in PayPal, you can go back to the Customer Area, and your images are available for downloading. If your images do not show in the checkout area, just refresh your browser tab.
