  1. Hi Earl, yes you can with most stock agencies.

  2. Hi Sheila, that is usually the purpose of Rights-Managed images. You request a usage for a certain medium i.e. Website and Company Flyer and then pay for it. The image should be then only licensed for this medium to you for the certain time. After the time is up (usually some years) the agency license it to someone else. Therefore it is not 100% exclusivity – more a “reservation” of an image. I hope that helps.
