Image Agency and Copyright Notice

 You can contact me at 


Are you a journalist, a magazine editor, a book publisher or affiliated to the press?  Do you want to show the latest astronomical phenomena in high-resolution and in full-colour to your readership?  Would you like to use stunning deep-sky images, high-resolution pictures of the New Forest, tightly focused photomicroscopy images, or custom high-speed flash images in your advertising literature?

If so, then the Scientific Artist is pleased to be able to offer datafiles of our deep-sky and DSLR  images for use in your articles or advertising literature.

Contact me today at  to discuss how you can incorporate my images into your publications.

I also accept commissions for images of the New Forest and for technical specialist photography including high-speed photographic flash images (flash duration 9 microseconds!), photomicrography (images taken through a research microscope), macrophotography and macromosaics (mosaics of objects taken in macro mode), and panoramic mosaics taken using a panoramic head (including “Little Planet” panoramas).

Pricing and Ordering:

Pricing is variable depending on both the use of the image and the type of image you wish to purchase.  For example a high resolution full page image will be more expensive than a postcard size image which in turn will be more expensive than a thumbnail.  In addition, all deep-sky images will be more expensive than high-speed flash, macro or micro images as they take very much longer to both acquire and process.  For ball-park guidance to costs, a postcard size 300DPI macro or micro image may range between £25 and £100 depending on the complexity involved in creating the image (for example, is it a stitched mosaic?).  The price of an A4 size deep-sky image at 300 DPI could vary anywhere from £50 to £500 depending on the image (some of the deep-sky images have well over 60-hours of total exposure time and at least the same amount of image processing time) and what the image is to be used for – for example, use as the primary (attention-grabbing) image on a book cover attracts a higher pricing than an image contained within a book.  The deep-sky images that take the least time to both acquire and process are the “single star” images. so these are also the least expensive deep-sky images to purchase.  Please note that all images are provided on a non-exclusive basis, and that the Copyright remains solely with Prof. Greg Parker.

If you would like to order a deep-sky or DSLR image please contact me at with the following information:

1)  What image do you wish to acquire?

2)  What size and what resolution do you need the image to be supplied as?

3)  For what purpose do you wish to use the image?

Purchasing prints for private collections:

Individuals (or organisations) may also purchase prints of all the images seen on both the Scientific Artist and New Forest Observatory web sites.  All prints are created using a 6-colour Hewlett-Packard Designjet 130 which can print up to A1 size on high-quality photo-paper.  Each print of A3 size or larger is signed and numbered, A4 prints are not signed or numbered.  Check the pricing of any deep-sky image on the New Forest Observatory web site.  For DSLR images please contact me at with the following information:

1)  What print do you wish to purchase?

2)  What size of print do you require?

I will then get back to you within 12-hours with a purchase price.

Scientific Artist prints are displayed on household and company walls all the way from Seattle to Sri Lanka 🙂
