Limitations to the use of artwork
Fine art prints, posters, and postcards sold by Wise Up Photography are for private use only and are protected by French copyright laws. The purchase of artworks from Wise Up Photography does not confer the rights to reproduce them or make them available to the public in any medium or form, nor does the supply of artwork imply the availability of these rights.
To publicly display or exhibit artwork by Wise Up Photography, permission should be granted in advance, and depending on the project, an additional fee should be agreed upon.
Exhibition rights can be obtained for all artwork by Wise Up Photography. If you wish to order artwork to display in a public place such as an office, a shop, or a cafe, get in touch with me.
Original Artwork Vs. Posters & Postcards
Original artworks are produced on demand in a limited quantity and taxable as such. They are signed and numbered on the back, and delivered with a certificate of authenticity that doesn’t mention the price. They are printed with pigment ink on fine art paper, to last up to 100 years.
The total number of prints listed under each Limited Edition Artwork represents the total number of collectors’ prints being produced commercially for that artwork. No more will be produced for sale once all prints have sold out. I reserve the right to produce up to two ‘Artist’s Proofs’ (AP) for each artwork, in addition to the editions quoted, but if these are produced they are not normally intended for commercial sale.
Prices for limited editons increase as editions sell.
Original artworks are available in different sizes but within the strict specified limit. In other words, for the same photograph, edition 1 is available in one of all sizes, edition 2 is available in one of all sizes, and so on.
Posters & Postcards
Posters ans Postcards are copies of an original artwork.
Art is subjective and should not rely on the print medium to be categorized as art. If your budget does not allow you to purchase the original artwork, you can have it in poster or postcard. They may not offer the same benefits of longevity, quality and presentation but they can still provide an emotional connection with an image.
All photographs can be printed according to your wishes. For large orders, a special size, framing, or one of my photographs not listed on the site, please contact me.
Make sure your delivery address is correct and completed in full before submitting your order. If your order is returned to me, I will be happy to re-send it. If your order is NOT returned to me, I will do my best to locate it, but I take no responsibility and I will not be able to re-send it under any circumstances. All returns are the responsibility of the customer until they reach me.
Shipping rates are calculated during check out according to the shipping address.
All items are shipped with a tracking number.

For all zones except 5 and 6, shipping costs are independent of the number of items in your cart and will be calculated based on the most expensive shipping class in your cart. If you purchase a print and a book, you will only be charged for the book’s shipping. Buy 3 prints at once, and you’ll pay the same shipping fee as if you buy 1. If you buy 2 prints and a book, you’ll pay the same shipping fee as if you only bought the book.
For zone 5 and 6, books will be shipped individually in order to offer the most reasonable fee. Consequently, shipping fees increase with the number of books in your cart. Shipping costs remain independent of the number of prints ordered at once.
The VAT rate of the shipping fees, if any, will be based on the lowest VAT rate in your cart.
