As a favour, I went and did some shooting for a local councillor today at her latest dog in the park breakfast event, and whilst I was there, a couple of people (from businesses) asked for my details and whether I could send through some of the photos of them and their dogs.
Now I have no issues with this, my only concern is if they use the photos for their websites/newsletters/advertising, without my approval or giving me recognition. They will not be getting hi-res images either. That said, like every amateur photographer, any recognition/exposure I can get would be amazing.
Can anyone help me out with how to write an email to go with the photos reminding them that I have ownership over the photos and that any use apart from personal, means that acknowledgement will need to occur.
If this is an unreasonable request please let me know, as this is the first time anyone has actually asked me for some of the photos I've taken.
The local paper's photographer didn't turn up like he was supposed to, so there is a chance that my photo's might also end up in the paper so might need to do an email up for them as well.
Any help that can be provided would be much appreciated.
