I was approached by a music band in London who wants to use my images in their upcoming album.
I included the main points of the email below:
We have just finished our third album and we shall be self-releasing it later this year. I am writing to you to ask whether you would consider and hopefully be interested in giving us permission to use your images as the sole artwork for our album?
I'm hoping of course that you will see this as an opportunity to collaborate creatively together, and I certainly hope that by us using your images that your photography can be given some extra exposure.
It may be a case of using one image, or if the idea I have in mind can come to fruition then i'd actually like to create a small booklet that accompanies the album, containing the album details, information and numerous photographs from the one set you have titled 'XYZ'.
So that you can find out a bit more about us, our music, previous releases and info can be found by following these web addresses.
There are also many videos (both live footage and directed) on YouTube.
Thanks for reading, I sincerely hope to hear from you so that we may be able to discuss this further.
Feel free to message me here or perhaps more directly would be at:
I am a hobbyist who started photography last year. Therefore I am not quite sure what I could ask or negotiate for (monetary, exclusivity, license, misuse prevention and protection etc…).
I wish to know the industry standard for similar request and any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
