As you got on this page, you probably want to use one of my photos.

Of course you are free to use them on your website, in your book, in your newspaper or whatever. Just tell me that you use it there - and go ahead! (Yep,it's as simple as that.)

Oh and it would be cool if you mention me (Arne Hückelheim) as the author either below the photo or in the references at the end of your book.

So far I got requests from political parties, priests who need a photo for their next church service, from several people writing school books and also from a guy writing a book about himself selling porn books in need for a red-light-district-street photo. Everybody is welcome and I appreciate the really colorful mix of "customers" from all over the world I had so far.

If you send me a copy (hardcopy or pdf) of your book I that is great! But it's not a must.

Thanks a lot and have a lot of fun going through the photo gallery of wikimedia commons!

Oooh! And if you have a wikipedia account and a question you can also send me an E-Mail.

Cheers from Germany! Arne Hückelheim

Please may I use your Sundarban photos for a student assignment?

Yosemite National Park[edit]

Huang Shan

Greetings from Yosemite!

I am using this photo in a draft of an International Affairs fact sheet for Yosemite National Park (Huangshan is a sister park with Yosemite). Thanks so much! Please let me know if this is ok...just comment here.

(talk) 18:58 , 6 February 2014 (CET)


I visited Yosemite park a couple of years ago and enjoyed the awesome view on a big, big waterfall. I didn't know Huang Shan and Yosemite were sister parks - but I do get the point as they have a lot of steep & high granite peaks in common ;-)

Don't ask, just go ahead and put my name in the references! That's it! Would be really cool if you could send me a copy (digital or hard) of your fact sheet, but that is not a must!

Just write me an E-Mail (including your E-Mailadress) using ->this Link<- so I can tell you were to send a copy:

Diwali Blog Post[edit]

Diwali Oil Lamp

Hello Arne,

I've never edited a wiki page or wiki user page before, so forgive me if I make an error. I have been looking for an image of a diwali lamp for use in a Diwali blog post on my food blog, Kavey Eats. However, as an amateur photographer myself, I dislike using images without permission from the photographer so I was very happy to find your image, and your note that we could use the image within and outside wikipedia.

The blog post will appear on my blog on 26 October 2011.

I hope this is OK.

Many thanks, Kavey

Der Vortagsabend fand am 23. Oktober 2013 in Walheim/Württemberg statt; der Vortrag wurde von Dr. Clemens Dirscherl, dem Geschäftsführer des evang. Bauernwerkes in Württemberg, unter dem Titel „Unser täglich Brot — Teller oder Tank? Wie gehen wir mit Lebensmitteln um?“ gehalten. Also eine seriöse Angelegenheit.

Es tut mir leid, dass ich Dich erst jetzt darüber informiere, aber just Ende Oktober bin ich umgezogen, und hatte daher alle Hände voll zu tun … Wenn Du möchtest, schicke ich Dir gerne eine PDF-Datei des Plakates (teile mir einfach über das “Email this user”-Feature Deine Mail-Adresse mit!). Ein gedrucktes Plakat kann ich Dir leider nicht schicken, weil alle Exemplare weg sind — ich hätte selbst gerne einen Beleg für die Gestaltung gehabt, aber auch keines mehr bekommen :-(

Wiki Loves Earth 2017 - Danke, und wie geht es weiter?[edit]

Hallo Knipptang,

vielen Dank für Deine Teilnahme am Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth Deutschland. Damit hast Du ein Stück Natur in Deiner Region dokumentiert und Wikipedia geholfen, andere darüber zu informieren.

Dieses Jahr wurden 24.000 Fotos eingereicht, im vorigen Jahr waren es noch 18.000. Bei der Teilnehmerzahl (1063) wurde der Rekord vom Vorjahr nur knapp verpasst.

Um die große Zahl von Bildern angemessen zu bewältigen, suchen wir weitere Helfer für die Vorjury, zum Kategorisieren oder zum Einfügen der Bilder in die Artikel und Listen der Wikipedia.

Eine Jury wird Anfang Juli auf einer Sitzung in Fulda die besten Bilder auswählen. Nach dem Zeitplan sollen die Top100 am 15. Juli 2017 veröffentlicht werden. Kurz danach werden die Gewinner benachrichtigt.

Wir möchten auf Wiki Loves Earth Biosphere Reserves hinweisen. Bei diesem Wettbewerb können bis Ende Juni Bilder von Biosphärenreservaten aus aller Welt eingereicht werden. Selbstverständlich darf man das ganze Jahr über Bilder zu beliebigen Themen bei Wikimedia Commons hochladen, nicht nur wenn ein Wettbewerb läuft...

Freundliche Grüße.

“Harvested wheat field with round straw bales”

Hallo Knipptang / Arne,

ich habe eines Deiner schönen Fotos, nämlich das am Rand hier verlinkte, für eine Info-Postkarte des Bezirksarbeitskreises Heilbronn/Weinsberg des Evangelischen Bauernwerks in Württemberg e.V. verwendet. Auf der Rückseite habe ich als Attributierung

(Fotos Vorderseite: l.o. © Arne Hückelheim, [...] Lizenz siehe

angegeben; ich hoffe, das ist OK so (falls nicht, war es kein böser Wille ;–) Es wurde leider einfach zu eng, um auch noch einen Link zu den Bilddateien auf Commons abzudrucken). Nur der Vollständigkeit wegen: Weder ich noch sonst jemand verdient mit dieser Postkarte Geld (außer der Druckerei natürlich), es geht um ehrenamtliche Arbeit.

Wenn Du mir (z.B. über das Commons-Mailsystem) eine E-Mail-Adresse und/oder eine Postanschrift nennst, schicke ich Dir gerne ein PDF-Datei der Karte als Beleg und, sobald sie gedruckt sind, auch ein gedrucktes Exemplar.

Vielen Dank für Deine schönen Fotos und herzliche Grüße, --Aristeas (talk) 18:17, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
