Thanks very much for this, Webby. I was a bit puzzled, as I had also noticed the RAMC patch on the uniform. My uncle told me he was at Ash Vale, but I always thought he was in the REME, as he was a plumbing and heating engineer, and he said he was given his stripes (sergeant or corporal, I'm not sure which), because of his trade.. I think you must be right though. I will add the keywords you suggested, and ask him again next time I see him.

 

Just for curiosity, how did you get the copyright of that image to be able to license it?

By the way, a very nice and good feeling image. Smiles everywhere even spitting and cleaning boots :)

Thank you an regards

I'm sure Vb has this in hand, but in the UK in 1956, copyright in a photograph belonged to the owner of the film. So if it was taken with his uncle's camera, he owns the copyright and has presumably given permission.

Alternatively, if it is an official Service photograph, it is out of copyright as the term of Crown copyright is only 50 years from creation or publication.

Thanks, Spacecadet. You're right that's it's old enough to be out of copyright.

Of course, I was thinking that Vb has all the rights and permissions. No doubt about it.

Just asking to learn how to "borrow" some images from an old aunt that has pass away recently. 
Everyday you learn something new. Thank you, Mark!

Just ask the permission of whoever the images were left to in her will. However if she did not take them, the copyright will belong to the photographer. If they are old enough you may be prepared to take a chance, but for myself, I only have archive images I have taken myself, with one exception which was taken by my late father. I am assuming Spanish law is not too different from ours.

Yes, spanish law should be similar. I will try to find out about it. Thanks, Mark.

Low $$ - $ to me for a book - but nice to license something shot in my garden this summer. They say butterflies and flowers don't sell as stock but I only have a handful and they seem to do okay even if this one was for far less than I'd anticipate for the use.

I have 243 butterfly images and have sold 12. Not that good. I’ve sold way more of flowers, a few hummingbird moths, and lots of bees. I like photographing these subjects...my candy treat, so to say, so I’ll continue even if my CTR takes a hit. Those sales add up overall.
I can’t take the subjects I most love to photograph away or I might as well hang up my spurs. The secret is to not confine yourself to seldom-sold subjects, and offer more of your bread & butter images, even if taking them doesn’t particularly excite you.

I wouldn't like think what might be bread and butter subjects any more. They never taught anything about that at art school and after 50 years in the business I would hesitate to offer any advice. There was a time when I thought I knew a bit about it but I think I've lost it.

Well, bread & butter images for me are my own personal images (subjects) in my port that sell the most often. Since most of our ports are different, I assume the “bread & butter” images will change somewhat for each of us. And one can’t recognize these until one has added enough variation over time to start seeing a pattern in their licenses.
I remember the first time I introduced a different set of similar subjects and got a quick sale for good money. I began to concentrate on those more to see if it was a fluke or had legs, and it has paid off. You know the old saying, “even a blind squirrel can find....”
I believe in variation.

These are the first 100 of AoA for the running year.

It's 24 pages before the UCO dips under 20.

Only at page 91, UCO is less than 10.

Flower is about midway on that top-100 list. And free is very high. 😒

 

It's funny how books is in there - I've sold a few photos of books (the first taken for a local magazine some years ago and then I re-did an updated version which also sold). Not something I'd expected to sell but shows it's hard to guess.

 

Wish I had pix of the Beatles - they're in there twice. Maybe I'll shoot some old albums? An our daughter sent us a 1000-piece Beatles puzzle lately. A twofer- stay at home and a popular subject?

But would you own the copyright? And what about the competition?

If it's really easy it's all over the micros, and they are all over here. So maybe go for the slightly less easy things with lower views, but still respectable UCO.
