If you are interested in historical Whistler photographs for advertisements, websites, interior design, publications or personal use, we can help.
As of September 2015 we have begun using the online photo-hosting service Smugmug, which will streamline our online galleries and personal photo orders. You can visit our profile at whistlermuseum.smugmug.com. Please be aware that it will take sometime to upload our massive photo archives, so available galleries will be limited at first.
Looking for something in particular?
The Museum has over 100,000 photographs of Whistler in its collection, so if you are looking for something specific we can probably find it for you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do.
The Museum has the ability to print photographs up to 17" x 22" in house.
How much does it cost for commercial use?
Usage fees are charged when images are obtained for the purpose of commercial promotion or revenue generation. This includes, but is not limited to, using photographs for books, magazines, newspapers, calendars, brochures, websites, advertising, and interior or exterior commercial display or decoration.
For personal or research-only use, we charge a smaller fee for a copy of the photo, be it digital or print.
Different uses have different prices, so please check out our Price List. Payment can be made by cash, debit card, credit card or cheque.
Why are there fees?
We have fees because it is very costly for us to digitize photos and to keep our photo collections properly stored and preserved. We are a non-governmental, non-profit organization and so our sources of revenue are limited. These fees help our archives to maintain collections for future use.
To order photos it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Select your photos from the website photo gallery, or email us to find something specific.
2. Download our Photo Order Form and send a SIGNED copy to the Museum.
3. Make a final payment and you may pick up or have your photos delivered.
What about copyright?The Museum holds the copyright for many of our photographs, but for those we don’t there are legal restrictions. To learn more click Copyright Restrictions.
