I had a quick search but couldn't find anything, so sorry if this has been asked before.
Not something I really want to do, or have done in 10 years. (well i do, but for one client who I have had a contract with for 6 years and a pretty relaxed working agreement)
But recently I shot a project for a new interior design client, and agreed to allow the guy who did the bar (an exsisting client) and the guy who did the pool, to use the images also. Even though as far as I know they are not contributing to the cost of hiring me.
Sent out the images today, along with a License - to - use (I use a tweaked version of the AOP one) to all parties and the invoice to the designers. There was no initial written agreement to who had usage ( i never have got it with clients really), but to keep everyone sweet, especially the new clients,
I gave them all a license.
I now have the Pool guy stating that he requires copyright release and has always got it from photographers!?
I have stated that this isn't something that I do, but he is again saying he needs it.
Now if it comes down to me needing to keep everyone sweet and doing what I really don't want to do, how would you price the release? I have googled it but not found any explanation of peoples costings, and just a bunch of articles saying not to.. which I already know.
I'm currently thinking double the cost of the job!? which would be around £700 (I'm probably not charging correctly in the first place, I just base it on time)
Going to try my best not to have to go this route, as it sets a precedence in my book, but think the new designers could be a great new client so don't want to upset them.
Cheers for the help
