By the way, thanks for all the responses on my question regarding being busy in a store front last week. I’ll let you know how it goes this week.
Friday I was approached by a business owner regarding my Grand Canyon Monsoon photo. The gentleman owns a manufacturing company in a specialized area, and the company produces a yearly catalog. They’d like to use the Grand Canyon Monsoon for next year’s catalog. I’m on board with that.
Now, my only experience with licensing is the micro-stock photography business, and you don’t get much money there through the company I deal with. They set the pay guidelines, and I go along with it because that’s what I agreed to. I personally don’t know what you get for a 1 year licensing agreement on a catalog cover.
In addition to the catalog cover, the company would also like to use the image on their website homepage. All very good stuff.
What the heck should I charge, and where should I look for a limited licensing contract? Kelby’s site did a great piece on model releases recently, I wish they had a tutorial on licensing. Plus, the tutorial at Kelby’s site had 7 model release formats which I downloaded. Know anywhere I could find a licensing contract for photography online???
Thanks all. If I get an answer, we’ll make sure it gets posted here so other people trying to figure this out will have a resource. I’ve been scouring the web this morning, and doing a bad job of it. 🙂
