The images displayed in and on this website, any images that we have created, all text, all graphics and the entire layout and structure are and remain the ownership of Linnea Lenkus, and her heirs and assigns and all infringements will be punished according to the law. We take these matters seriously.

Photographers, Art Directors, Graphic Designers and all Creative Professionals: Our website is NOT A TEMPLATE for you to take, it is here to inspire possible clients. If you are pointing to our website and say "Wow, this is a great photographer," then that is okay, because everyone likes praise and because we all look for inspiration. But if you actually take images, layout, navigation and text, that is totally forbidden and you should be totally ashamed to call yourself a creative individual. Creation is that thing INSIDE OF YOU that should bring you to that point in your development to call yourself "creative". If you don't have it, then leave the creative profession because that's what you are attempting to sell. Don't steal someone else's creativity. It's plain wrong and illegal. If you would like to use our images for your project, then contact us FIRST, this includes comps which seems to be something that art directors feel freedom in taking from photographers. If you are too stressed and on a deadline and can't come up with the words or the images at this moment for the project at hand- -we have met you many times before, and truly you need to go look for another profession.
