I saw the recent help thread dealing with a request another user received. I didn't want to hijack his thread so here is my own...
I was contacted about using a photo for a website. The request comes from a company who supplies engines for the specific aircraft in my shot. The initial request was brief. They just asked for permission to use the photo with credit to me and a.net. I asked for a little more info about the site and they responded with a link to the site template so I could see how it's going to look.
I'm just not sure when it's appropriate to ask for compensation for websites. From the looks of it, the intent of the image on their page is to provide an example of a plane using engines supplied by them. It's not elaborately incorporated into the layout design or anything.
I don't mind supplying an image for free IF it's appropriate to do so. Or maybe it's better to say, when expectations of monetary compensation isn't appropriate. We really should have a general thread about this stuff. Or a guide much like the rejection guide created by folks with lots of experience with photo requests and sales. Especially if most think photographers should charge for their work.
Just wondering how one should generally approach requests for websites.
