There are two ways to become an exclusive owner of an original D'Day Photograph. If you want the pride of being an exclusive owner of a D'Day Photo, a one-of-a-kind as an investment, or want to put the image on sellable items like T-shirts, coffee mugs, etc without worry of copyright infringement, there are two ways to go about it. Once purchased, you have exclusive ownership rights to the image although I retain the right to use the image only for marketing and advertising for my company if I choose to do so in the future. Once transfer of the image to you is complete, I will never offer the image for sale again or give it to anyone else. It becomes your exclusive property.
Step 1 in the process is to go to the CONTACT page of this website, and send me a message that you are interested in becoming an exclusive owner of the image name and gallery in which it is included (e.g. Elephant Ear - Gallery 2). I will then check to make sure the image has not been previously sold and let you know if the exclusive ownership opportunity is still available for that image.
After Step 1 is completed, there are two ways to complete the transaction:
Transaction Method #1 is $300.
Transaction Method #2 is 0.2 ETH (approx $300).
Transaction Method #1
Certificate of Authenticity
This is the method I prefer. Upon receipt of payment via PayPal, I will prepare the Certificate of Authenticity. To assure certificate validity, I apply the D'Day embossing seal. This certificate along with a USB flash drive containing the original RAW file, and the final post-production image file will then be sent to you via U.S. Postal Service. The back of the certificate contains a transfer of ownership history should you ever decide to sell or gift the image to someone else. If you prefer, I can prepare the original and final images for direct download to you as well followed by issue of the certificate via regular mail.
Transaction Method #2
Mint and Transfer the image as an NFT
If you choose this method, I will mint the final image as an NFT on Rarible.com which is the only platform I will use for creation and transfer of images as a non-fungible tokens. Once the minting is complete, you can then go to Rarible.com/ddayicm and purchase the image using Ethereum. This is the only digital currency I will accept, and Rarible.com is the only platform I will use to transfer the image.
