I am happy to sell rights for stock.
If I am using an image from our photo shoot for advertising purposes, you should be flattered! However, if you're not happy with the image, let me know and we can pick one together.
When you purchase a high resolution package from me, you are not purchasing the copyright. Photo Booth Studios retains all copyrights.
Let it be noted that I will not remove another photographers watermark for personal use. So please don't ask, and I expect the same professional courtesy from other photographers/digital image specialists.
