Artist Statement

UNIQUE RIGHTS-MANAGED PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO: This site is the only dedicated archive of modern American military photography that includes extensive model-releases and images that comply with US Department of Defense regulations for advertising and promotional use. These images were made primarily by Hans Halberstadt through special arrangement with the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. US Navy SEALs coverage is a specialty here.

VIDEO: we now offer original (not DoD) produced SD and HD video of military and law enforcement subjects.  Contact us for details.

FEES: license fees vary depending on intended use. 

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING: contact me directly (email address and phone below) for a quote for newspaper ad use.  

Call or write for quote or use the SHOPPING CART calculator.  Either way, we need to know your planned uses for the images.  There are no "royalty-free" images on this site. 

NOTE: NOT ALL IMAGES ON THE SITE HAVE MODEL RELEASES OR MEET DoD ADVERTISING GUIDELINES. Contact us for information regarding US DoD regulations and review process for advertising.
