Put yourself in their place: you are going to be asked to shell out a fairly large sum of money for a little signature you made for fun.
I think most photographers would have no problem doing it for free, with maybe photo credit.
I get emails all the time from people who only want to edit photos to put on that airplne edit site. I have no problem with it.
Again, all he had to do was ask.
All these discussions start debates about how/if the person if profiting from it, and if they are making profit, how do the photos contribute to it. Who cares? If you are robbed and they take nothing of value from your home, does that mean you should let it pass?
My camera equipment is expensive and I go through a lot to get a lot of my photos. Expensive trips, climbing near-vertical hills, standing on the edge of 60-foot cliffs, walking through ankle deep mudd and knee-high water, tresspassing, getting detained by police, paying money for transportation, sometimes cutting class or work and more.
these people could do is send me a damn email to ask permission.
As photographers, ALL WE
HAVE are these ethics to hold onto. Without that, we get fed to the wolves.
