Ever Been Asked To Use Your Photo?

Tue Jul 02, 2002 2:46 am

Anyone ever e-mail you for use of your photograph that is posted on here? Did you agree to its usage?

Oh yes, quite a bit, I always allow it for free for something educational/documentary, but the commercial idiots never reply when I tell them a reasonable fee will be involved. No big deal to me though, except them wasting my time.

regards,
Serge

i guess alot of people get asked, me? well, people just take mine and then get mad when i confront em.

i guess that's what the world is coming too.... the communistic idea of "what's yours is mine" and the wonderful utopian philosophy granting the free exchange of property, not ideas.

yes, yes, i have a chip on my shoulder towards people with no regard for copyright laws..

seriously though, once you get a good amount of pics on here, you'll start getting alot of emails from honest people that want to use your pics, often for money which is alot of fun.

yep i get requests fairly frequently..

i have really noticed a trend in my "number of photos uploaded vs. number of requests" ratio...recently it's gone back up but a while ago when i was struggling with throwing anything onto this site, i was getting jack squat emails for photos...so i'm pleased to be getting some requests again  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yes, someone has asked me once to put my photo of a Swissair A321 onto this news website but unfortunately I replied too late and they had already found another photo.

Many times, but you always get those idiots who either want it for free, or ask for an unreasonable payment. I've only had like 4 deals this year.

The best is getting a request AND an invitation to visit the planes you photograph. I've been invited to see two Citation X's, and a Challenger 600. Maybe even a G-IVSP if I follow up with the gentleman.

I only have two photos in the database but I got like 20 emails about people wanting to use my Cubana IL-62 photo last year.

I've had 2 requests in 2 years. First was for a Southwest 733 for the Southwest Pilots Newsletter, sent it, charged no fee, although asked for credit and a copy of the newsletter...never heard a peep from them after I sent the pic.

2nd was last week from a student wanting to use a Mesa CRJ for a class presentation, no fee, just credit...... haven't heard back.

Really doesn't bother me becuase the Southwest 733 is a really bad pic. The Mesa is better, but oh well, no big deal to me.
