John Hultgren Photography is available for contract photo assignments. Our specialty is emergency medical services and public safety photography because, with 52 years of experience in public safety, we really know that industry. Photos are perfect for display in an office and for use in promotional material, conference booth displays, organization calendars, brochures, flyers, web sites, social media, and press releases.
We are happy to discuss your event to evaluate whether we are a good fit for your needs, so please contact us.
John Hultgren Photography offers full-day or half-day packages on a "Per-Image Pricing" model, including travel expenses. For a full-day assignment you agree to purchase a limited commercial photo license for four photographs. For smaller projects that take about half-a-day to complete, you agree to purchase licenses for two photographs. Of course, if you are happy with our work you can purchase additional commercial photo licenses and prints to display. This model reduces your risk and rewards us if you are happy with our work.
You may order prints from us in a variety of styles and sizes to display however you wish without purchasing a commercial photo license. Prints purchased from us do not require a license and may not be copied, reproduced, or redistributed. To make your own prints, or to redistribute the photo on a web site or in promotional material, you must purchase the graphic file. Graphic files are sold with a commercial photo license and are available in four resolutions (sizes) and can be downloaded immediately after your purchase.
What you can do with a Commercial Photo License: John Hultgren Photography grants you a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to use the accompanying image(s) or video(s) (collectively known as "Media,") for permitted commercial purposes.

|Commercial Photo License||
You can purchase individual photographs from your event as a digital download with a commercial photo license, which allows you to use the photo for business purposes subject to licensing restrictions. For packages that include digital photos with a commercial photo license, you will receive a coupon code after post-production is complete that will allow you to download the number of photos included in your package at the full "Original Image" size at no additional charge. After your coupon has been used you can purchase additional photos with licenses if desired.
Info! You need a digital download with a commercial photo license to redistribute a photo (such as on the Internet or in a brochure), or to make your own prints. You can redistribute the photo an unlimited number of times and make an unlimited number of prints. You do not need a digital download with a commercial photo license to order prints from us for display.
A digital download is simply a copy of the original image file, sized in one of four ways. Digital downloads are available immediately after purchase. You should purchase the largest size that you expect to use (you can always print smaller photos than the file resolution, but printing larger than the recommended resolution will produce unsatisfactory results). You are purchasing a commercial photo license with each digital file purchased (please see the explanation above).
When post-production is complete we will provide you with an Internet address (URL) to an on-line hidden photo album. This album is accessible to anyone with the URL. When you view a photo that you wish to purchase, simply select the "Buy" button and navigate to "Downloads". Select "Commercial Photo License" and selct the file size desired. We will provide you with a coupon code to use at checkout for the number of "Original Image" files included with your package. Please note that this coupon code can only be used to purchase "Original Image" sized files to download.
We offer four file sizes (with different resolutions) for digital downloads:
You may order high-archival-quality photographic prints directly from your photo album (accessed with the URL that we will provide to you after post-production is complete). You do not need a commercial photo license to order and display a print but you may not copy and reproduce the print because it is protected by Federal Copyright Law.
We offer photographic prints on three different types of photographic paper in 65 different sizes. We also offer prints on traditional canvas, rolled canvas, and metal. Prints can also be orderd mounted and framed. We also offer flat metal and curved metal desk art, 22 keepsakes, and 4x8 flat cards and 5x7 folded cards.
You may view pricing in the photo album that we will send you the URL for. Pricing examples include (subject to change but current on July 1, 2022, and not including shipping):
