Unless otherwise stated, my photos are published under a Creative Commons Attribution licence. That means I’m happy for you to post them around and edit them however you like, as long as you give me credit. You don’t even have to ask me or tell me, but I’d love to hear about it if you do – you can tag me as @furinkan on most social media.  🙂

For attribution please indicate that the photo was taken by shortgirls.net or Barney Desmond (or both if you like). That’s all you need to do.


  • Why such a permissive licence?
    Because this is a hobby, it doesn’t make me money. Too many people get their knickers in a knot about having their photos “stolen”. Well, so what? Really. Go create more photos instead. I’m happy if my work brings enjoyment and happiness to others, and unrestricted usage is the way to do that.
  • Editing is okay?
    Yes. You’re welcome to chop and edit the pictures however you like. If you want to make a little 4koma or gif, that’s totally cool.
  • Is it okay if the watermark gets cropped out?
    Yes that’s fine.
  • Does the watermark count as attribution?
    Technically yeah, but I’d prefer a written attribution. I don’t mind either way.
