One of the US-based Press would like to include one of my photos in its upcoming textbook. And they would like to know if it would be okay for them to use the photograph and whether I have a higher resolution version of it.
How should I reply to them as this is the first time I am approached for my photo?
I have lots of questions:
1. Sell? If yes, how much?
2. Rights and license? What kind?
3. Contract? Email based possible?
4. How to reply?
Basically, I am honored that one of my photographs is shortlisted for a publication. I do not mind not earning anything but I also understand that I should not spoil the market and to protect my rights. I will at least make sure I get proper credits. And is requesting for a copy of the textbook reasonable?
Thanks in advance for your advices!
