better understand it all:
images and photos remain
the property of the photographer.
use is for one-time use only.
If you reuse, you pay.
• Business, event and commercial work is for a pre-determined length of use. The more use you need, i.e. web, pr, advertising and newsletter, the more the total fee.
use of any of my photographs is
only by permission.
photography is not cheap, but
it does have to cover preparation,
assignment time, and the end use
of the photos. Also included in
the bill: assistants, digital
file organization, computer time and processing, transportation, shipping,
an independent contractor, please
remember my fee and markup on
expenses not only pays my wage,
insurance and retirement but also
includes maintaining my expensive
equipment, paying phone bills
and keeping me in paper clips.
you digitize or rip my work off
in any way without permission
and payment, I will visit you
with my new assistant (recently released
from state prison) and settle
fee will be charged for an assignment
that is canceled or postponed.
More if you call the day of the
shoot; Less if you let me know
within 48 hours.
all big jobs, I ask that the client
kindly advance me a check to pay
for production expenses.
one more thing, please pay my
invoice like your company pays
you within 30 days. Overdue
