Photographic Images, Reproduction Fees and Filming
Photography is not permitted in the Pepys Library including for private use. Images can be purchased for private use from the Library collection. If images are intended to be used for publication, for exhibition or for any form of reproduction including electronic, there is an additional reproduction fee. Permission must be applied for from the Pepys Librarian for all image reproductions.
Please contact the Library for further information on photography costs and permissions fees. The exact cost will be notified to you for your approval before your order is processed.
Where we do not have an existing image, new images can be ordered subject to the approval of the Library, who will check the condition of the items requiring photography. Please note that there may be a waiting time of up to 8 weeks for new images depending on our schedule, although in most cases we can supply images more quickly.
On occasion, and subject to availability, we grant access to the Library for the filming of historical documentaries.
Before ordering, please read the Photographic Services: Regulations and Conditions document. This will give you further information about the ordering process and which order forms you will need to complete.
