This is conditional on the individual having respected the
"conditions of use" in the past.
The cost for prints is as shown below. Normally this is...

All printed pictures are from a high resolution electronic
file (not the low resolution you will have seen on the screen). They are
fitted as neatly as possible to an A4 sheet,
The gloss laminate is a film which is welded to the face of
the print and is invisible to the eye. It should not be confused with
encapsulating which many print shops etc. describe wrongly as laminating and
which is a pocket surrounding the paper and sealed outside the edges of the
print. Laminating extends exactly to the edge of the print and is
undetectable without careful inspection. It protects to a considerable (but
not total!) degree against the fading of the colours and allows the print to
be placed in a frame designed for A4 size paper.
the copyright note! This picture is supplied on the understanding it is
for personal use only and not for commercial publication. The only exception
I make to the "always" rule is that if I discover the use of a picture that
has been supplied on this understanding in a commercial publication, then
future pictures may not be supplied.
Please get in touch. I can supply
individual photographs in electronic form either direct from the camera or
processed as you prefer. If you wish to feature a particular individual or
match I can supply a CD-ROM from which you can choose a picture to suit your
purpose. If emailing then please use the subject line "Cricket Picture
I receive requests from commercial organisations such as magazines and
newspapers stating they cannot pay anything for the use of my pictures. I
find this insinuation they are "worthless" somewhat irritating, especially
when I know that the writer of the accompanying article will be paid for
his/her trouble. If they are worthless then why ask for them? I expect a
considerably lower fee than the picture libraries but I am not prepared to
donate pictures to commercial organisations.
When files are uploaded to the site they have been cropped from the original
shot (i.e. a piece has been snipped from the middle of a larger picture).
Depending on the degree of this process, it is possible to print good quality
pictures at approx A4 size (297mm x 210mm inc the border to any picture - the
picture area will be slightly smaller) - a common size sheet of paper in European
countries - or A5 which is half this size. (The nearest equivalent in the USA
to A4 is 'Letter'). But uploaded files are of
greatly reduced resolution - please ask
for the full resolution version if you wish to print!
I am happy to supply any registered charity, cricket club
or cricket association with electronic files files free of charge if they
are to be used in the promotion of women's cricket. It is a condition of
this supply that copyright remains with me and they are not sold. Also that
a copy of any printed matter which uses the picture is sent to me, or the
URL of any web page is emailed to me.

glossy or matt paper. They do not confer any rights in the picture, copyright being
retained by myself. They may not be reproduced in any form, scanned or stored in
any medium including electronic. If you wish to use any pictures on this site
for any such purpose, whether commercial or not, please get in touch, and see
the notes above. I
will normally be happy to supply pictures FREE to non-commercial organisations
promoting the sport of women's cricket, or for any charitable purpose.
**Lamination : This is a process which heat welds a fine film to a paper surface.
It extends only to the edge of the print. It should not be confused with
encapsulation which many offices and copy shops wrongly refer to as
lamination. Encapsulation places the paper in a pocket and seals it with
the air extruded. The film is not always welded to the paper surface. With
encapsulation the presence of the film is often very obvious. With
lamination the paper simply has the appearance of a high gloss finish (or a
matt finish in many cases - check the menu at the next restaurant you eat in
- if it feels very smooth and does not finger mark it has been laminated!)
In some case I am able to supply CD-ROMs e.g. all the
pictures in the library of a particular player, or perhaps all those from a
match or series. There may be a restriction however on matches where one or
more players are under 18 years of age, due to the ECB's Child Protection
policies. Here the images of such players will be removed, unless you are a
relative of that player, although they may have been shown, unnamed on this
web site. If you would like such a CD, then
email me. The ECB's photographic policy is available on their web site.
right click your mouse on the picture. (Try it on the
select "properties" from the drop down menu
(Explorer) or "View Image Info" in Firefox. If that choice
does not appear to be available in Firefox try "Save image as". There is
no need to save the image, just to read the filename it is suggesting.
look at the last section of the filename, that is the
section after the last "/" character.
make a note of the complete filename from the
"/" character e.g. the picture below would be
050821-0204-team-Eng.jpg. [As an aside the filename usually takes the form :
date (in scientific notation yymmdd - surname - forename - team
represented at the time or competition, in this case England.] The
final part of the name may be truncated to
comply with Internet conventions but the numeric part alone will identify the file uniquely.
On newer files the forename may appear before the surname.

To conserve the space allowed me on the server, and to ensure fast downloading when you visit, photos
on this site are all of low resolution (72dpi or 96dpi). This is adequate
for screen representation but will reproduce very poorly, usually showing
the pixel nature of the image, if you print them on your ink-jet or laser
During the course of the 2002 season I upgraded my kit to a professional
digital camera, allowing me to shoot many more pictures and to store them at
a higher quality with a view to selling a few to magazines, newspapers etc..
Low resolution versions are uploaded here. At the
beginning of the 2003 season I also improved the quality of the pictures by
adding an image stabilising lens to my armoury. Further kit improvements
have been made more recently.
While I photograph principally for my own enjoyment I hope
that those shown on this site and hopefully purchased by you, or freely
given to you, will give you
memories of friends and family. ALL proceeds from the sale of these
pictures goes back into supporting women's cricket.
I do, of course, have a multitude of pictures which I simply
could not cram into a web site. Currently the archive exceeds 1Tb (2017). If you requires a shot of a particular
player, or a particular match,
please email me.
