Photo Usage On Canvas

Hi,

I'm looking for some pictures on Airliners.net which I can use for printing on canvas. I would like to hang a couple canvas frames on my wall in the office. It is important to note that this is the only purpose for the use of the pictures, it is not my intention to use the pictures for other goals or on the internet.

Off course I'm willing to pay a fee for the picture, but what would be a reasonable fee to pay?

Grt,

Erik

I sell canvas prints fairly often, but I always get the printing done myself, and then sell the customer the finished product. I do not send a high-res file for the customer to print, and I imagine most other photographers would do things the same way.

To give you an idea, for a 12 x 18 print on canvas I charge $160. For something larger, such as 20 x 30 I charge $280.

Thanks for the reply!

I can totally understand you want to do the printing yourself. However, the advantage for me of printing it myself is that when I use 2 or 3 images from different photographers I know for sure the size and thickness of the different canvas prints are exactly the same. This gives the nicest result.

Grt,

Erik

Absolutely, but by supplying you with a high-res image, we would be effectively licensing you the image (since we can't exactly monitor what you're doing with it), in which case it would behoove us to charge for said license.

Well, I would probably trust you and send you the hi-res file for a reasonable fee, unless I though my photo was really very special.

I'd still hold the rights to the photo, of course.

Charging me for the license/picture is very reasonable!

Of course you hold the rights! The image file is for one time use only. I only use it to order the canvas print. I probably won't even keep the file on my computer after I ordered it  

Thanks!

Yes, I just said that to make clear why I'm not too worried about sending hi-res files if I can see why the customer wants it.

I strongly believe many photographers here are overly suspicious. I've never been screwed by somebody who agreed to pay for my photos.

I know that my work is not that special, but I've clinched some nice deals by being cooperative.

I very much agree with your approach here. If somebody is willing to pay for my photograph in the first place and has a good reason why they need the file, I am more than happy to take their word for it.

Last year a WN pilot wanted to get a large canvas print of one of my images. At first I tried to organize the printing myself, but when it became too complicated, I just sent him the file. I explained to him that the file could only be used for this one print and that I retained all rights. He gave me his word and we both were very happy with the exchange.
