The Nature Conservancy might use one of my pictures in print. I support them with both time and money, but I'm not sure how to answer the question below:

Quote from my contact
"I just heard from our Program Manager that we are interested in using some of the photos in our marketing materials for the project. Firstly, do you mind if your photos are used for this purpose? Secondly, if we can use the photos can you provide them to us in jpg format? Thirdly, what would you like for us to use for the copyright?"

First:  They're asking permission from you to allow them to use the image.  it's up to you to decide if you want to give them the right to use it.

 

Second: They're asking for the most common image format known in the history of digital imaging.  If you can't get them a .jpg file, something is seriously wrong.

 

Third:  They're merely asking how you want to be credited.  I.E.; Photo © Sam Jones, or Image © Bad Images Photography.

 

 

What is missing is compensation.  What you ask for is up to you and what you agree to is entirely between you two.

I think if you are personally already supporting them with time & money, then I would regard it as a nice compliment that they wish to use your photo(s) and an equally nice supportive gesture from your side.

 

Consider it as "free" advertising on your behalf... make sure they insert your details with each photo. Like harvest time and you could reap the benefits later...

 

Just my thoughts, Kervin!

I agree with Herman when it comes to non profits I support and truly believe in I just take the free advertising as payment with proper copyright and recognition that is.

All you need for them to say on the Credit Line is:

 

Copyright © 2014, Kervin (add Last name)

 

Then, sit back and smile when they publish.  Ask for a few copies of the publication for your collection.

 

Congrats!! :)

Thanks for the replies.   I'm going to donate the usage of the images and my details/credit will be noted on each image they use.  One of the hardest transitions for me is shooting images that convey another persons ideas.

In your response I would put a value on it and make it as a donation that could be tax deductible.  I do that with the Diabetes group that I shoot.

Kervin, it would be nice if they, in addition to your copyright info, added your website.
