scruffy dog's approach to Rights-Managed and exclusive images is certainly unique in the stock imagery industry. Besides our highly personal approach and flexible fees (not a one-contract/one-fee fits all model!), we offer the ONLY multi-image / multi-usage "open" contract in the industry.  Entirely unique to SDSP, this carefully-developed, tiered model gives our clients the ability to refresh their images every single year as needed!

If you are after multiple images in an ongoing basis, please inquire today about this NEW exciting and affordable model, available ONLY through SDSP!



Your project and business are unique. Whether you are working on a marketing campaign, new packaging, your website, or a cross-company branding, set your project and business apart from the masses with high-quality, premium Rights-Managed images ... impactful, unique photos that make your project truly stand out.

Licensing Rights-Managed images – versus Royalty-Free or Microstock photos – allows you to license for specific uses and time frames with the confidence that you have purchased a unique image, unused by anyone else! Due to the limited distribution and control of RM images versus the mass distribution/download of Royalty-free images, RM images are the answer for the client who is eager to distinguish themselves from other businesses within their industry.

Rights-Managed means that you know whether your image(s) is being used elsewhere, but also – with scruffy dog – you will know whether the image was used in a previous contract, and how it was used. And, of course, there is always the option to purchase exclusivity with any image you contract!



With ‘exclusivity’ you essentially own the image(s) for the duration of your contract. When exclusivity is purchased, your images are for YOUR use and no one else’s ... no fears of a competitor or someone else within your industry using the same (or similar) images, and you can be confident that your contracted images are truly unique and one-of-a-kind.

Exclusivity is available on any photo and is often included in the fee depending on your contract and your history with scruffy dog stock images.



Fee structures for stock image usage and/or commercial shooting is geared toward your distinct needs, taking into consideration your individual project and budget.

Fees are calculated based on multiple factors, including but limited to:
- the intended use of the image(s) (editorial, one-time print ad, web page banner, billboard, packaging, full-collateral, etc.)
- the term / time-frame of usage
- media type (print, web, etc.)
- size of the image required
- size of distribution or print-run
- geographic distribution
- requirement to re-license for any possible new usage, or an extension of duration, territory or distribution

Other factors affecting your licensing fees:
- total number of images within the licensing contract
- exclusivity requirement
- client loyalty (at SDSP we work closely - and often repeatedly – with our clients for years, and fees are adjusted to reflect loyalty)
