Spend more time painting and less time looking for something to paint or worrying about copyright issues.

For the last 6 or so years, I have been taking reference photos everywhere I go. This Reference Photo Library now contains over 2,000 photos and is constantly growing. It acts as my inspiration hub and it can be yours too.

I’m frequently asked by readers: “I found this photo online. Can I paint it?” 

My usual answer is no, unless you have explicit permission from the owner. 

The Reference Photo Library allows you to paint without worrying about the minefield of copyright issues on the internet. You can use the photos as you please, as long as you don’t resell the photos. You can paint from the photos, print them, download them, or even sell paintings based on the photos.

My Personal Favorites

A special bonus of joining the Library is access to my personal favorites. These are photos that I have painted or wish to paint. You’ll get to see what I think makes for a great painting subject.

Lifetime Access for Just $37USD

Paint Some of the Most Scenic Locations Throughout Australia and Around the World

I’m fortunate to live close to some stunning locations. The Reference Photo Library includes shots taken at The Great Barrier Reef, Fraser Island, Noosa, Gold Coast, The Routeburn Track in New Zealand, Bali, and Tasmania just to name a few locations.

Option to Download the Entire Library to Your Computer

I designed the Library to be viewed online on your computer, tablet, or phone. When you see a photo you like, you can download it individually.

But I’ll also provide you with links to download all the photos to your local computer. This is perfect if you travel and do not always have access to the internet.


Here are some examples of the photos you’ll find in the Library:
