Got the following request:


I would like to print a copy of your photo to frame and hang up in our offices. It will be close to 12x14 or so. Can I get a release for that, and a higher res copy?"

To which I replied that I would give a copy to her, not a high res version, for proper compensation--that it would not be free. This was her reply:


I'm not sure what you are looking for. I had asked someone else about their photo for the same purpose and they said - no problem and that was the end of it.

Best Regards,

Please be aware of this person asking for high res copies to "hang in the office." Highly doubt a marking director for an aviation company would be looking for copies to hang around the office.

Just a heads up!

I'm sure you could get quite a few 12 x 14 prints on an office wall if you wanted to.I'd have offered her a hi-res version to make her print - and charged her accordingly.If she can source freebies elsewhere then so be it.
It's a beautiful photo by the way - i'm not surprised they'd like it hanging on their wall.

Is that a problem? Part of the reason I joined was so that I could decorate my room with a poster or two of some of the pictures from this site. What kind of compensation would you recommend for a picture?

Quoting srn121 (Reply 2):
Is that a problem?

The way I see it, yes. It's a commercial organisation wanting to use a photo. If they want a picture to decorate their office, if they went to a shop to get one for example, would they expect to pay for it? You also have to read between the lines. They are a commercial organisation who provide training material and use photos to illustrate things. I wouldn't send them a high resolution photo without payment either. The problem with digital media is once they have the file, they can make as many prints as they want and you wouldn't know anything about it. Payment isn't ther to make money, it's just to cover expenses. How much was the camera used to take the photo, maybe $2,000 or more. The cost of being in that location etc.
