Hello all, I need some advice on how to handle a request to use one of my photos. The person asking never says anything about buying the picture yet he wants to use it for a cover shot for a magazine. Here is his e-mail:
Dear Anthony Russo
My name is Weerapan Meewannasukkul. I am a commercial pilot and a co-editor of The Aerospace Magazine in Thailand.
The Aerospace Magazine is an aviation magazine in Thai language. It is the first commercial aviation magazine in Thailand since last year. Our objectives aim to supporting the aviation knowledge for Thai people.
This May issue, we will introduce about LOW COST AIRLINES,history,business models, the first low cost airlines, the first successful airliens,currents low airlines in Europe, Asia especially in Thailand...
Now we are looking for the cover about LOW COST, we decided to select the picture about Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA) because it is the first low cost airlines in the world so we found that yours PSA picture number 1073662 in www.airliner.net is well suited for the cover.
So, I would like to ask for permission to use it for the cover for MAY...The LOW COST AIRLINES. And I will print them about 5000 copies. The size is 7.25„e10.25 inches, ISBN: 9 771905 187004.
Due to the size of cover, may I request for higher resolution (at least 2175„e3075 pixels) and any charge you want please tell me about it.
I will put your name in the Contributor page that you give us the right and you still have the copyright... and I will send you some copies.
Our website: www.aerospacemag.com... It is not completed yet until next month.
I have uploaded the photo to this forum for all to see, I think it is worth a lot more than what he is offering. Can any of you give me advice on what to do here? How much should I charge for this shot? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated........Thanks, Anthony Russo
