May I copy my images?

In accordance with Federal copyright law, all images are the property of Barksdale School Portraits. It is illegal to copy or reproduce your portraits anywhere else. However, if you purchase a Senior Portrait High-Res CD, it comes with a photo release form. This will give you the rights to print copies of your portraits anywhere, any time.

When is my yearbook pose selection due?

Generally, yearbook selections must be returned within 7 days of receipt of your proofs. If Hockmeyer with Barksdale is collecting poses for your school, there will be a selection box in the upper right-hand corner of the last page of this booklet. Failure to return your yearbook selection on time will result in a pose being selected for you.
