I just got asked if one of my photos can be used
I received this just now:
Dear Don Smith
I am a freelance writer in Brighton and I'd like to submit this photo of yours with an article I'm writing for Stamp Magazine about Royal Mail Ships. If you are happy for me to use it, could you please email me a high res version of it (300dpi) to XXX@XXX
There is no payment available I'm afraid but if they use it they would give you a credit. And I'd email you the PDF if you give me your email address.
?I know many have opinions on this. First, I am sure he is being paid to write the article so why should by photo not be paid for? On the other side I am happy to get the photo used. Should I hold for some money?
This is the photo:
