About Tidalstock

"Without Water There Would Be No Life"

About | FAQ | Privacy | Web Site Terms and Conditions

> Water is the foundation of life and that is what we strive to capture. Our company was founded from the passion we grew up with living by the beach. We want to provide photography that not only captures the beauty of water in all of its elements, but also the action, the inspiration, and the lifestyle. Our photography, whether it is stock images or custom design work for your product, attempts to capture the uniqueness that is often lost in advertising images. We take our experience and apply it in elements that are difficult to shoot, to create images for you, that capture attention and keep your audience intrigued.

> Who are our photographers? Tidalstock believes that there has been a shortage of fresh and unique stock photography in our niche. We aim to change this by offering only hand selected photographers that deliver not only quality images, but something not seen before. Each of our photographers must bring something that compliments the current stock library, whether it is a new element of water and life or creative use of colors, we look for bold uniqueness. We want to create an offering that is both unique to advertisers and a showcase for photographers. We consider our stock library is a virtual art gallery for advertisers and not just a depository of random poster stock images like most large stock companies.

> Why use Tidalstock? Not only do we offer amazing stock images, we do not sell or submit to micro-stock or any other venue that commoditizes the industry. We believe that each image should be treated as a work of art, meaning that we track the image usage, can help you determine if the image is used in a similar campaign already, and in many cases we can contact the photographer to produce a similar image that may fit better with your needs. We are here to make your campaign a success.

What is Rights Managed?

Rights Managed images are products that require a licensing and fee based on the use of the image.  The fee will be calculated on various factors such as print run, size, and or media type.  Rights Managed images will be invoiced with the license based on the information you provide to us.

Do You Offer Royalty Free?

At current time we do not.  Royalty Free images are granted licenses based on the size of the image and not the use or print run size.

Why Don’t You Offer Royalty Free?

We value our customer’s advertising and media campaigns!  We monitor the use of our images and can therefore properly ensure the images you choose for your campaigns will be limited in distribution.  If an image is highly sought after, we can tell you the estimated current circulation of that image which you can choose to accept the image or choose a comparable one with less circulation.  We can even limit the future circulation if your image is going to be a key branding element.  In addition, we offer services to learn what your future needs are and will attempt shoot those images.  We will offer you first run on those images if you request.  Lastly, most of our images are unique to the elements and subjects being shot which makes our images hard to duplicate and gives you more security that your competitor will not easily duplicate your campaign.

I Found An Image But Can’t Determine The Correct License Terms?

We understand that not every use of our images can be selected in our pricing tool.  If you can not determine the correct license requirement call our offices and we will be than happy to assist in creating a custom license that will fit your needs.

How Do I Get My Images? 

Images are delivered via electronic distribution.  Either through a download link after purchase or a download link emailed to you after payment.

What Image Sizes Do You Offer?

All our images will meet most standard magazine or periodical printing requirements from 1/4 page to full page spreads.  If you require larger formats for billboards or large format printing we can accommodate such requests on most images by calling our offices.

I Can’t Find The Image I Am Looking For?

Try using more specific keywords or strings.  Still can’t find one, then call our offices and we can assist you in your search.

What Do You Do With My Information?

Tidal Advertising, Inc. respects your privacy.  We will not distribute, share, or sell your personal information to any company.  This includes your name, email, phone numbers, and purchase history.

I Like A Certain Photographer, Can I Commission Them?

Yes.  We have arrangements with most of our photographers to bid on projects.  Prices vary depending on the photographer and type of commission.  If you would like to commission a photographer, please call our offices. <Back
