About

Loupe Images, launched in spring of 2006, is a matchless source of inspirational interiors and lifestyle photography and illustration that is continually updated to create a wide range of beautiful images with a cutting-edge feel. Our subjects are the pleasures of life: our homes and gardens, the food we eat, the wine we drink, health and wellbeing, crafting and those very special occasions.

The pricing grid determines fees by considering factors such as: Specific use; Reproduction size and position; Period of use; Size of print run; Distribution territory, etc.
A credit line will be supplied with the image and must be included with the reproduction, such as "© Loupe Images/Name Credit".
