Hi Guys,

 

If a company takes your image and uses a portion of it as a composite in another image... should they pay (or at least credit)?  Especially if said company is a major US TV brand and uses it for their next blockbuster TV series?

Hi Stephen,

A lot of images are cropped when published and used in composites. It doesn't matter, the user still needs to pay.

Yes, pay for use, absolutely!  Long before the digital era, I submitted film photos, to a magazine, for a stock request they had.  All the film was returned and they said that none was used. Well someone had written a note on one of the transparency mounts saying "Scan the sky".  When I saw the magazine, I sure did recognize the sky in this two page spread was mine!  I called the photo editor and she seemed upset that I wanted to be paid but they did.  Sadly tho, I didn't hear from that magazine for a while.  Well, she has long since gone and now that magazine is my biggest client! I shoot for them for nearly every monthly issue!
