Ordering new photography of collections
Due to ongoing Covid-19 pandemic disruption, there may be delays to our photographic service orders for new photography. Please allow as much advance notice as possible. Please note also that the Museum is a research and teaching department of the University of Oxford and cannot supply images at very short notice.
Using existing images
Existing images of the collections can be viewed via the Museum's online collections databases.
For personal and teaching use
Screen quality images can be taken directly from the Museum databases, for personal use, private study, academic theses and student essays that are not being published, and free educational lectures or classes, in accordance with Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, meaning that you are free to share the material but must give appropriate credit to the Pitt Rivers Museum.
For publication and exhibition
If you would like to reproduce an image of our collections online or in print, please complete a publication license application (linked below) with as much information as possible and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All images are supplied in digital format, either as TIFF or JPEG files. We aim to process all orders within 30 days.
Selected images from the historic photograph collection are available for order online as framed or unframed prints delivered to your door. A selection of around 700 images is also available to order online from the Bridgeman Art Library. These images have all been pre-cleared for editorial use.
Where there is no suitable existing image, we may be able to produce new high-quality photography of the majority of objects in our collections for publication. If you would like to order new photography, please complete the appropriate licence application form below and send it to email@example.com. Please note this will incur a minimum additional cost of £15 per image, and there may be a delay beyond 30 days for processing these requests.
You can pay via credit card on our online shop, or by invoice.
