Just got an email requesting use of this photo in a private collection.
I'm in the process of emailing him now and stipulating that the photo is not to be used in any way for advertising or profit gain and the photo must not be altered.
Am not thinking of charging him for it.
Am I thinking wrong?

What does he want.
A high res file? Then i would say no way. For private use 1024 width or max. 1200 should be fine. Otherwise you run into the risk of being ripped of.
But if he wants a print he can use the buy a print option where this photo can be bought and all parties involved are happy. He because he gets his print, you because you have no work to do and you get half of the profit and a.net because the site gets the other half of the profit.
Just out of curiosity is the guy from Canada?

Already sent off the email
1200 wide or less, he can have save it to his hard drive, print it, and have it for free. More than 1200 wide, click on "buy a print".
Just wasn't sure of personal collections. If it was a travel agent or airline, I'd definitely ask for a fee regardless of size.
Feels good though to have a photo in my collection to be wanted by a collector.

if this is Dann asking for the photo I gave him one of mine a few months back. Was quite a nice chap and was just looking to print and put on his bedroom wall at home. Here is a copy of the email I sent him (if it helps).
Glad you like it. And thank you for asking. I am more than happy to send a larger file, but before I do, can I ask that:
- you not use this photo for anything other than use on your personal PC as a screen backdrop, or to print out for display at your home
- that the copyright banner be left on for all prints and/or use on your personal PC
- that any requests for use of the photo beyond this be directed via myself
- that the photo only be used for yourself and not for any monetary gain or other ventures not agreed by myself.
If you are happy with this, let me know by mail and I will send the photo straight away. Sorry to sound a little heavy. Hope you don't mind.
