Image Requests

Images of many of our objects are available for private research or commercial use.

Requests for images of objects not already photographed will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and will depend on staff workload and availability, as we do not presently have a photographer on staff.

The Sedgwick Museum retains the copyright of all images of its collections.
Photographers must supply us with copies of all photographs taken and must sign the rights of these images over to the Sedgwick Museum.

For Research:

  • Visiting scientific researchers may make use of our basic photography set-up: copy stand; lighting; black or white backgrounds.
  • Any specimens photographed for private research must be listed on a Copyright Licence Agreement. If photographs are to be used for any other purpose, a further agreement must be entered into and the necessary fees paid.

For Commercial use:

  • The use of images for books, television and multimedia requires a Licence Agreement and will incur image reproduction fees.
  • Commercial filming in the galleries will incur a facilities fee, calculated as a flat rate plus hourly charges.

To request an image or for further information please contact us.
