Dear Rémi,
Thank you for your mail and all the information you gave me. 
You're a docker at the Roro side?! Sometimes I'm doing Roro 
as well at the Tor-line and it's great to do some trailers 
once in a while.
You asked me for the use of some photos; 
I understand your story and for me it's ok that you use some 
of my photos. However I think that you want to download them 
from the site?
Like to give you some important information; The website has a standard fee for commercial use because 
I do have contracts with international maritime magazines and 
some of the photos are sold exclusive, trying to say that you 
can use the photos you like Rémi but only the downloaded ones; 
I cannot give the original pictures.
You like to use the photos as a contributer for the website 
wikipedia and that's ok, but I need to have controll over my 
(originals)photos, I do hope you understand my point Rémi!! 
Hope to hear from you again Rémi.
Best regards,
