I am regularly contacted by members and followers of LPM, sharing their thoughts, images, ideas and asking questions about the publication. One commonly asked question is about LPM’s policy on photographer’s rights and whether the photographer keeps all copyright to a picture they have submitted to us.
The answer is simple; yes. The photographer retains all rights to their images and they can publish them wherever and whenever they wish. Being a photographer myself, I have always been passionate of the photographer’s rights and I can proudly say that I have implemented them with this publication.
With article features, however, there is a difference. Although the photographer still retains full copyright of their pictures and text, which they can publish anywhere, at any time, LPM retains full copyright on the feature's design and publication, and we request that any feature published by the magazine is not re-published or shared elsewhere for six months after its original publication in LPM. This enables us to keep bringing our readers and subscribers exclusive content of high quality.
For full terms and conditions and further information about photographer's rights see on this page in our website.
