Just wondered if any (German) members on here had the current issue of Flug Revue - I believe it was available for sale from 16th January. If so I'd be grateful if you could check something for me.
Flug Revue contacted me in December regarding a photo of mine they wanted to buy and use in this issue. I sent them the high res file as promised the same day and they replied to say it looked good and that they'd let me know what the graphic designer said. This is the last I heard from them and despite sending an email to ask them to confirm they didn't use it, he read my email and didn't even have the decency to reply to me either way. I am therefore very keen to check that they have not used my photograph because it's without my permission if so.
To avoid plugging, I won't link the photo here, but if anyone who has it, or can easily have a look at it, can contact me, I'd be really grateful
If you get a chance to look at the magazine, I'd be really grateful!
I suspect they haven't used it as they seem a large reputable magazine, but I know that sometimes things slip and the graphic designer could have assumed that he was allowed to use it because he had been sent the full size image to use.
They have just contacted me today to say that it has been used and in order
to arrange payment. They seem completely professional but maybe they don't always communicate with people if the shot is not used.
