They Want To Use My Pics! (a First)

Thu Jul 03, 2003 6:55 am

...unfortunately, not my plane pictures.

I got an email forom a guy that owns this writing website that pertains to New York City, and he came across some subway pictures of mine and asked to use them on his site.

He make sno money on his site, so all I require is that he give me credit by showing my name and email address.

Maybe one day someone will want my plane pictures.

Ok, probably not. lol

What was your first request to use your pictures?

It looks rather nice as the main feature photo for an article on ATL.

Should have some in Airways and maybe Airliners for the news section soon (I hope).

Wow, how do people get to the terminals there? I dont see any roads or walkways to it? The thig is surrounded by ramp!

Lots of Delta planes. What is that a hub or something? (KIDDING!!!)

A graphic designer from California last year asked me for permission to use this picture of mine in a brochure for Parker Aerospace, never even got a copy of the brochure but he did pay me $120  Smile

in Flight Deck International ... payment was pretty meager as I recall, however, the shot led to subsequent requests for photos, advertising copy (which pays better  Smile) and a media pass for Farnborough 2002 ... so all in all quite a profitable little pic  Smile

Cheers,

Colin

Chapman Freeborn, a European charter company asked to use one of my shots. Needless to say they wanted it for nothing and I never heard back from them, oh well. Shameless self plug of the shot they asked for.

My first request? A pilot wanted a few prints of the plane he was driving around in the sky...

He got them (free of course!  Big grin )

Then Munich airport wanted a shot for a presentation
(they got it, free of coure, as a presentation isn't a commercial thing)

and some air charter business wanted a shot for their web page, but as that was commercial in my book, I asked for money and they never got back. (As a matter of fact, I contacted a photographer whose photos were on their page to ask for a price guideline (I know, bad manners Big grin ) and it turned out they had used his pics without permission...

So, I haven't made a single penny off my photos (yet)

I've had several companies & organizations contact me about using my pictures, but the deal usually falls through.

The first one that was actually used was by Southwest. It was used on FreedomNet and the new SWACOM website.

This photo ws used on a "fansite" for aviation in the south of the country (UK) and channel islands. No finacial gain, but a credit all the same.

Its amazing to be requested the use of your photos, but remember we do this bobby for the photos not the money  Smile

Thanks,

"......remember we do this hobby for the photos not the money".

Well yes, but if someone is going to gain commercially from a photo then why shouldn't the photographer get paid. Do you know how much it would cost them to hire a professional photographer to take photos for let's say an advertising job? Airliners Net is an EASY and LOW COST source of pictures. Don't let them profit from your work!

I charge for my videos usually because I have no moeny and this stuff is expensive to produce. I don't really make profit, either, just enough to cover costs and invest into making better video, so the money paid goes right back to the customers in a sense.

My first was a while ago but it wasn't aviation related..

My first a.net pic was one I can't remember which.. but i sold it for £30. When I saw it was 10x8 i realized i probably should've charged alot more..

ah well what are you going to do?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Nice sales guys.

I have to say I used to sell alot around 3 years ago but since the digital age and this site growing into a huge database its became harder to get noticed and make sales.

This site is complex for your average first time punter. Just look at the process you have to go through as a visitor to find photographs, granted if you know what your doing its a breeze but if your a first time visitor looking for photos it could be a little intimidating.

Still we do this for a hobby and something to occupy our time.
