IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT COPYRIGHTS: 

ALL OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOUND ON THIS WEBSITE ARE COPYRIGHT PROTECTED AND REGISTERED WITH THE UNITED STATES COPYRIGHT OFFICE. PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS WITHOUT MY PRIOR WRITTEN PERMISSION. ALL UNAUTHORIZED USE (ESPECIALLY COMMERCIAL USE) MAY BE PURSUED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

IF YOU FIND ANY OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS ON THIS WEBSITE ON ANY WALLPAPER WEBSITE (OFTEN CLAIMING TO OFFER "FREE" WALLPAPERS/SCREEN-SAVERS) OR OTHER WEBSITES OFFERING "FREE" IMAGES, DO NOT BE MISLED. THOSE WEBSITES HAVE OBTAINED MY IMAGES  ILLEGALLY.  THEY DO NOT HAVE MY CONSENT TO USE MY PHOTOGRAPHS FOR ANY PURPOSE, MUCH LESS TO OFFER THEM FOR FREE!  MANY OF THESE WALLPAPER WEBSITES ARE LOCATED IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND DO NOT RESPECT U.S. OR INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT LAWS AND/OR DMCA TAKEDOWN NOTICES. PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS FROM ANY OF THESE WEBSITES. 

TO CLARIFY: I HAVE NEVER SUPPLIED ANY OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS TO ANY WALLPAPER SITE USING MY PHOTOGRAPHS ON THE INTERNET TODAY. NOR DO I APPROVE OF OR ALLOW ANY SUCH WALLPAPER-SCREENSAVER USAGE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS ANYWHERE.  ALL WALLPAPER WEBSITES CLAIMING TO PROVIDE MY PHOTOGRAPHS AS “FREE WALLPAPER” HAVE STOLEN THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND HAVE NO RIGHTS TO LICENSE THE USE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS OR GIVE THEM AWAY!

ADDITIONALLY, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NONE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS HAVE BEEN LICENSED TO BE USED ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITHOUT MY COPYRIGHT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION, OR TO BE “SHARED,” “PINNED”, “RE-PINNED”, “TWEETED”, “RE-TWEETED”, OR OTHERWISE POSTED TO ANY COMMERCIAL SOCIAL MEDIA PAGE WITHOUT MY WRITTEN PERMISSION.

I HAVE A WELL-DOCUMENTED RECORD OVER THE COURSE OF THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS OF SENDING DMCA TAKE-DOWN NOTICES AND ENFORCING MY COPYRIGHTS WHERE I HAVE FOUND UNAUTHORIZED USE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS. 

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MISINFORMATION AND OUTRIGHT UNTRUTHS BEING SPREAD BY A SMALL NUMBER OF WEBSITES THAT APPARENTLY DO NOT RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF PHOTOGRAPHERS AND OTHER ARTISTS TO PROTECT THEIR COPYRIGHTS.  UNFORTUNATELY, THOSE WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO BELIEVE THE MISINFORMATION ON THOSE WEBSITES HAVE DONE SO TO THEIR DETRIMENT.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SELECTIVE AND CAREFUL WHEN LICENSING MY PHOTOGRAPHS FOR WEBSITE AND OTHER COMMERCIAL USES IN AN EFFORT TO AVOID UNAUTHORIZED USE. I HAVE NOT ABANDONED MY COPYRIGHTS; I HAVE NEVER PERMITTED, ENCOURAGED, OR FACILITATED UNAUTHORIZED USE TO TAKE PLACE.

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS LIKE MYSELF HAVE BEEN HIT HARD  IN RECENT YEARS AS PEOPLE SEEM TO FEEL FREE TO JUST TAKE ANYTHING THEY CAN COPY FROM THE INTERNET AND USE FOR THEIR OWN COMMERCIAL PURPOSES, WITHOUT PAYING THE PHOTOGRAPHER.  I AM COMMITTED TO ENFORCING THE COPYRIGHTS FOR MY IMAGES.  CONSEQUENTLY, I WILL TAKE ALL APPROPRIATE STEPS TO PURSUE LEGITIMATE CLAIMS FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS INCLUDING FAIR COMPENSATION FOR THE PAST INFRINGING COMMERCIAL USE, AS WELL AS RECOVERING THE COSTS OF DISCOVERING THOSE INFRINGEMENTS, AND THE LEGAL FEES NECESSARY TO OBTAIN THAT COMPENSATION.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Like most professional photographers, I  have invested literally hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years in state-of-the-art cameras and professional-grade photographic and scanning equipment, travel expenses, film and developing costs, (and later) computers, software and digital storage, printing and proofing costs and so much more along with many years of continued hard work perfecting my art -- traveling to each island and the mainland, photographing, proofing, editing and printing the photos displayed on this website. Because my wife and I support ourselves exclusively through the use of my photographs, we respectfully ask that if you'd like to use any of my photographs, for personal or professional use, please contact me directly first to obtain a license to do so. Please don’t just take them from the Internet.

If you'd like to license any of the photographs on this website you visit THIS PAGE for more informaion. You can also email me directly at vince@hawaiianphotos.net or call our business office and speak to Michele at 808-823-1263.

Thank you very much!
