PostingAdvice: Licensing an Image for use in an App
I got an email via FlickrMail the other day from someone from a small shop that is making an ad. They would like to use an photo I shot of Stevie Wonder during an event at the Apollo Theater here in NYC and have offered me a photo credit and a link back to my portfolio as compensation. I don't know if it matters, but I shot the image from the audience, not as a paid photographer during the event.
Anyway, I'd like to get you guys' input on how I should respond to their request. I'd love to get at least some financial compensation for my what I think is a fairly decent shot. On the other hand, being that the subject is a celebrity, are there rules as far as me being able to sell their image? What questions should I ask in my reply about how the image is being used? Any advice would be gladly appreciated.
