Images on this website are licensed for editorial and personal use. The vast majority of images are suitable for business or commercial use, but it is your responsibility to decide whether a model or property release should be sought prior to download and use. (Notes A3)
Images are royalty-free which means they may be used as many times as you wish from a single payment.

A3. BUSINESS AND COMMERCIAL USE OF IMAGES:
If you download an image from Photo North for business or commercial use, you do so entirely at your own risk and are advised to seek legal advice, especially if the image contains identifiable people, identifiable property, buildings (especially those less than 70 years old or belonging to the National Trust), fairgrounds, theatre interiors, tourist attractions, industrial developments, art works, brands, trademarks or logos.
Joan Martin takes every aspect of her work seriously and has done everything possible to ensure she has acted correctly when taking the photographs, naming them, and adding them to this website. Joan is not a lawyer though and as the laws regarding commercial use of images are constantly changing and vary from country to country, you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that your intended use of an image will not result in any form of conflict or legal dispute. Every image is sold “as is” and you must, accordingly judge the suitability of the image for the purpose intended and decide whether a model or property release is needed. (A release is signed permission from an individual, or owner of a property, giving permission for the use of a photo in which they or their property appears). You must satisfy yourself that all releases as may be required for reproduction of the image(s) have been secured. If you are unsure as to whether releases are needed for your image usage, then it is your responsibility to consult with the relevant parties. You are solely responsible for obtaining any releases that have not already been secured and the licence is conditional in each case on their existence.
Details as to whether a model or property release has already been obtained are provided with each image, and unless otherwise stated, all landscapes, buildings, historical structures and works of art have been photographed from public roads, public footpaths, places that offered free public access (with no photography restrictions) or from a hot-air balloon.

If you have any reason to be disappointed with an image purchased from Photo North, Joan will offer a full refund if notified within 10 days of purchase.

B: PHOTO NORTH DISCOVERY WALKS
Much time and effort has gone into the making of the Photo North Discovery Walks because Joan would like them to be regarded as some of the best and most detailed guides on the market. Please note however that new fences may have been erected, signposts changed or at times you may have found the directions difficult to follow! Please contact Joan if you have any comments or contributions to make about the walks. Feedback is invaluable and helps to ensure that the guides are continually up to date and are as accurate as possible. This feedback helps to ensure the safety and enjoyment of other walkers.
The tick boxes on the photos of the PDFs are an ideal way to keep children interested in a walk, but some shots have been taken with a zoom lens, and Joan may have taken carefully considered risks to get some of the other photos. Children should not be allowed to take risks in order to get a tick!
The length of time suggested to complete each walk does not allow for lunch or coffee breaks, and is based on a person of average fitness.
Joan Martin has done everything possible to keep you safe while following the Photo North Discovery Walks, but no outdoor walking is without risk. You are solely responsible for your own safety and that of your family. Take the precautions listed on each walk, keep safe, and Joan hopes you enjoy these Photo North Discovery Walks as much as she enjoyed preparing them for you!
B1. PERMITTED USE OF WALKS:
1. You may print as many copies of the walks as you wish for your own personal use.
2. All rights granted are non-transferable and personal to you.
3. You may not copy, re-sell or re-distribute any walking guide.
4. The files must never be made available for others to download from a website or blog.
Every care has been made to keep walkers safe while following the Photo North Discovery Walks, but no outdoor walking is without risk and walkers must be aware that they are solely responsible for their own safety and that of their family.
If you have any reason to be disappointed with a walking guide purchased from Photo North, Joan will offer a full refund if notified within 10 days of purchase.
