The BCT Photo Library contains stunning images of all UK bat species, allowing us a priviliged glimpse into their secretive world. A number of these images are available for purchase, with samples available for viewing at BCT's online photo gallery (via Flickr).
It is a criminal offence to intentionally or recklessly disturb a bat in its roost. Photographing bats can disturb them, especially if bats are in their roosts (or entering and existing their roosts) and if you are using a flash/lighting. This sort of activity may therefore require a licence (More information available HERE). For more information please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Proceeds from Photo Library sales help fund the crucial conservation work of the Bat Conservation Trust. Pricing is based on specific usage requirements and is determined by a number of factors, such as:
- usage (how the image will be used, e.g. leaflet, poster)
- intended size of image
- intended position & prominence of image (e.g. frontcover, main image, thumbnail)
- size of circulation / print run
To enable your request to be accurately costed, please provide us with this information when enquiring about specific images.
