If you have a personal home page or non-commercial Web Site, please feel free to use my photographs with a hyperlinked credit on every page where one of my photos appears. Acceptable HTML is:

That way people know who took the picture and also can find my on-line copyright statement. You do not need to pay for usage. Just build the best Web site you can and give it back to the community.


Commercial Web use of Photos

If you would like to use my pictures on a commercial page, then please do the following:


  1. register the URL with me (sending email is fine)

  2. add the hyperlinked credit as above (on every page where a photo appears)

Possible payment for usage may be determined when permission is granted, although I reserve the right to deny usage on any site.

Non Profit Use of Photos


If you're a non-profit organization and want to use one of my photographs in a printed brochure or magazine, you can do so at no charge with a "Photo courtesy" credit.


If you're a artifact society or university and want to use one of my photos for a Calendar, PowerPoint  presentation, CD cover, you can do so at no charge by designating the photo with a "photo courtesy" credit in the credits. Please mail a copy of the finished product to Joel Castanza; contact for mailing address.


If you are doing a story, book, or CD-ROM about North American Indians and/or Artifacts, please feel free to include a picture or two of mine under the following conditions:

  1. The URL is legible in the text or separately printed in a caption

  2. A small credit is printed reading "Photos courtesy"

  3. Send me email informing me of the usage and mail a courtesy copy to Joel Castanza; contact for mailing address.



If you see one of my pictures in a magazine or on a Web page and there is no credit, then it is almost surely unauthorized.

I appreciate your efforts to inform me of such infractions.

Thank You!
