    I think the basis of such a contract is that you don't need to send your own reporters and photographers to war zones, other countries etc to write some news coverage, so they just buy the news + pics from a newsagency.......

    not exactly... the basis is "you don't need to send your own reporters and photographers to war zones, other countries etc to write some news coverage" (as you have mentioned), so they pay for the timely access to the news stories and images, and the network, and the support of the agencies, rather than the images and news stories themselves...

    there's a lot of information here which may conflict with each other.

    There are a few points to establish. Did you give the performer the photo

    a)as a keepsake,

    or did you

    b) give him the photo as he had commissioned you to take photographs of him, and there is an agreement for such a transaction

    if a), you still own the copyright, and the newspaper has infringed on your copyright. Their beef will be with the performer. Your beef is with the newspaper who had infringed your copyright

    if b), the commissioning party owns the copyright.

    As a photographer it is our responsibility to police for infringement of our copyrights as these are the lifeblood of our work.

    Should you wish not to pursue it that is your choice, however it is good to understand that it doesn't mean that just because SPH used it you have no recourse.
    You can private message me if you wish for more information on how you can go about with raising this matter with the newspaper
