Licensing

Rick and Just Enough Focus have the philosophy that art is meant to be seen and not hoarded. Our licensing policies are thus designed to balance the costs that go into creating and sharing our images with the desire to provide inspiration through our images on the Internet and around the world.

Just Enough Focus allows use of Rick’s images in two ways:
