I received this e-mail today. It appears to be a non-profit organization. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. All of the money I make from the sales of my photos goes to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund. Should I ask for money if they are not going to sell it? It's always a thrill to see my photos in print somewhere, but, if I ask for money, will they go elsewhere?

This is the e-mail:

I got a similar e-mail, for the use of the above photo. Looks like a well done enthusiast website, so I let them have it.

OK, I'll let them have it... Did you ever get a copy of it?

Thanks for your advice.

As far as I understood this, it's an electronic newsletter that is sent out by e-mail or downloadable on their website? I never expected a paper copy...

Anyway, I only got the e-mail three days ago, so I assume they want both pics in the same newsletter... and I'm guessing any other UK control tower pics they can find on a.net.

Hello,

I got a quite similar request today, and I am not really sure what I should do:

Quote:
Dear Bjoern,

I am running a pilot community website called flitework.com. The site is a platform for pilots from all over the world to exchange job related information. To make the appearance more attractive I would like to display randomly images on the left, just below the menu. You have made some excellent shots and I would like to ask you if you would allow me to display some of your pictures on the site.

flitework.com is non-commercial, but I do hope I can cover the costs by charging for job advertisements and banners in the future.

Please let me know if I would be allowed to display a some of your pictures.
If you prefer, I can also give you the photo-id number of the pictures I have in mind from airliners.net.

Many thanks for your reply.

Best regards,
Stefan

The images appear in thumbnail size in the left.. but without any credit or anything else.. And he already mentioned he would like to cover costs with ads in the future... so there will be some money aspects..

I am thinking of maybe suggesting him to insert them as a thumbnail link to the large version of airliners.net
Or at least I want some credit under the photo.
I somehow have the feeling that there is some money in the game, so I have a problem with letting him use them for free...

What do you think I should do?

Cheers
Björn
