Q. How do I cite a photograph with a trademark?


Thank you for your question about how to cite an image or photograph.

You would cite the photo with the trademark the same way you would cite any other image:

  • Give the name of the photographer (if there is one)
  • Cite the date the photo was taken (if you have it)
  • Give the title of the photograph with [Photograph] in brackets after it
  • Cite the place where you found the photograph (such as a website).


Image: with title, with Photographer name and date

Strang, J. [Photographer]. (2016). Aurora Borealis - Bear Lake, Alaska [Photograph]. Retrieved from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Polarlicht_2.jpg

For other examples, see the APA Help guide.
