Upload & Sell: On
Thanks for all the input. I will gladly accept that I did not define the terms very clearly, a rookie mistake. It's a very small second business to me and I have not developed a standard contract. Instead the invoice for the digital images said reasonable use for CoC for print or digital publication.
RustyBug asks what that means to me. My expectation was that the CoC could reproduce those images on any CoC publication, print or digital. Where I draw the line is when the images are used by a non-CoC entity, i.e. Sierra Heritage Magazine. It would have been ok if the CoC ran an ad in the magazine using my images, but they were used to illustrate a puff piece on our area in the Gold Country. So . . . they are being used to promote our area, but are still a separate entity. I would probably settle for proper credit and learn my lesson at this point.
It will take a very specific contract to define these terms. I'm new to selling images, or perhaps more accurately, licensing use of images. I've traded photos for large color ads with another publisher and get $45 each from the Coc, so it's been pretty amateur up til now. I did the cover photo for both the local magazine (15k print run) and for two county recreation districts. I do pro bono every year for a women's breast cancer fundraiser triathlon too, but sell prints from SmugMug site and donate 50% proceeds. I share all of that to say I'm only grossing less than a grand a year at this point, but want to move to more professional level pricing, which will support the larger industry too.
