Quick question! Help please!

I got a call from the company that we got Ryken's glasses wanting to use a picture I took of Ryken in his glasses. I had tagged them on Facebook in the picture, so that's how they saw it. It's going to be for a catalogue for doctor's offices. She left a message, and I haven't called back. What am I supposed to say? I'm totally fine with them using the photo, so is it fine to just tell them 'ya, use the picture!'?

Wow, that's very cool! I don't know what I'd say... probably just "yes"... but regardless, it's a huge compliment to you as a photographer and to your little cutie too!

If anybody is friends with Amber on FB she might have some insight! Or other pre-pro gals ... El? Labergund? Can't remember who else that is still active here...

I agree, HUGE compliment and your pictures of him are ADORABLE! Congrats! :woohoo:

Yeah, I think I would reply back to them telling them that they can use it, and that you can provide the high quality/resolution image for them (so they're not just taking the FB image). What a great compliment on your photography!

She ended up e-mailing me before I could even call them back. They are wanting the picture for a June edition of a eye wear magazine, so she wanted to hear back from me asap. They wanted to use it without my copywright on it, and I decided that was fine because I'm not a pro. They're going to send me a magazine when it comes out AND Ryken gets a new pair of glasses with transition lenses!! Yahoo They are $200 glasses without the transition! I'm pretty stoked they picked Ryken's picture and I'm excited to see it in the magazine.

Stephanie- Yup, I sent her the original sized file for the picture. I was concerned they were going to take it off of fb too. I had my watermark on the one of fb just for that reason, that I didn't want anyone taking it without my permission.

I'll have to take a picture of the magazine when I get it to show you guys!

I would have mentioned to them that I would like in fine print below the picture that the image was provided by and copyright by you. Congrats! Can you post a copy of the picture here?

Amanda- here's the picture they used. Honestly, it's not one I'm even that happy with! I just couldn't get the pp to where I liked it.
