    Most of OT will say to give your stuff away to gain exposure, but this ^ is the truth.








    Or...if she's hawt and will have mad sexin with you, that works too.

    I could never give the rights to my pics. I have taken quite a few free mostly for some real good friends I know and some select myspace girls(the ones with a billion people in them) under strict conditions of only publishing the ones I allow, it really has helped build an image.

    Now im thinking if I was to do that, how much should I charge for the rights.

    What kind of agreement did you make before you shot pics with her? If you didn't make any kind of agreement I would give her the pics and learn from your mistake. If not you could easily and quickly get a bad rep.

    If I were you I'd give her a CD with all the images tagged with your watermark, if your pics are really good. If the pics are meh... just give her the cd with no watermarks and sleep easy.

    If when you give her a CD and all the images are watermarked and she says "wtf is this I don't want this here"

    Tell her for $XXX.XX those watermarks can be removed.

    Then most likely she will say,
    HER: "oh I didn't know that, you didn't tell me this before we took the pics."
    YOU: :o "I'm a dumbass, my mistake, here have the pics for free since we never came up with an agreement before the shoot & I'm a nice guy"
    HER: Aw you're soo sweet, how about a bj?
    YOU: :coold: :bigthumb:


    Most of the times when girls say they want full rights to the pics they really just want all the pics you took, they usually don't care if your watermark is showing up on their pics for their myspace profile. :hs:

    it really depends how much time you spend on the photo shoot and post processing. If I were to give up my rights, I'd charge 10% premium over my standard rate of $50 USD/hour. After you start taking thousands of photos, not being able to use 100-200 shots won't really matter.

    Don't sell the rights, just license her the use.

    Werd, you should ALWAYS maintain the copyrights of the images you produce, and only license them for people's use. At most, give them file sizes large enough for 4x6s... any bigger than that, and they could potentially make money off them that belongs to you.

    Myspace + photographer = me in awkward situations way too often.

    dont do it.. NEVER give someone else the rights to YOUR photo.

    it means that whatever money you might make of the photos is theirs .. or you cannot use the photo in the future without their permission.

    Unless you really want to get your name out there, if not.. lose-lose situation.

    it's really a trend now, in some concerts or LPGA events, the event organizers want full rights to your photos.. fuck that.. i've know many photog's who have walked away due to the binding contract.
