General Stock Discussion / Buyout option at 123rf
« on: August 07, 2012, 19:44 »
I just received my first "buyout" request for an image at 123rf. I guess that just means that I am releasing all the rights to that image, and that I can no longer sell that image on 123rf or any other site. I have never sold an image in that way, so I am not really sure what kind of price to offer.

Anyone else have any thoughts about buyouts? Good idea? Bad idea?

General Stock Discussion / Using wedding stock photography
« on: July 31, 2012, 20:09 »
I do a fair amount of stock photography, but I am primarily a wedding photographer. I found one of my wedding stock photos on a wedding photographer's website in England. The photo was used in their portfolio section, and their logo was placed on the bottom right side of the image. I emailed the photographer, and he stood his ground.  He explained that he found it on the internet and therefore it now belonged to him. After several emails (rated PG-13) he eventually removed the photo.

I know that many businesses will use stock photos on their site to promote their services, but I definitely have a problem with a wedding photographer using someone else's photos to promote their skills.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar to this?
