    Default Postcard opportunity

    I have had an interesting e-mail this morning. :)

    A bit of background first. Last week visited my local nature reserve and was sat in the hide photographing the birds when a ranger popped in to say hello. She asked what I did with my photos after I had taken them. So of course I mentioned my website. She asked if I would share some with the park website to which I agreed.

    When I returned home, I found she had linked to my site from hers, very nice. :)

    I followed up with a thank you, and sent a sample photo that I had taken that day to see if she liked it. She passed the e-mail and photo on to her boss.

    Today I get the following message...

    "Thank you very much indeed for this!. Your photo is quite stunning.

    Actually, Carol, I’ve just had a thought.

    Would you consider doing a series of photos which we turn into post cards to be sold at the Kingfisher Café (a/k/a the “KAF”)?
    We tried once before but they were amateur photos which just didn’t have the style necessary. We fund the manufacturer and split the profit on the sale to Sadie at the KAF.

    Something to think about any way.

    Edward"

    It doesn't sound as though I would get paid, but it would be published work with my name on which might get the name out there. What do you all think? Go ahead?
    Regards,

    Carol

    Sometimes it not about the money, so I would say go for it. Sounds like a worthy cause.

    It sounds a wonderful idea and as Tom mentioned; it's not about the money.

    I would grant them 12 months UK rights to use the images for their publicity and to sell to the public as post cards. They are not to give, loan, or sell the images to any third party organisation, or business without prior written permission. Furthermore, each image used shall bear the byline of the photographer.

    IMHO Colin has suggested a sensible and professional approach, that would be to the benefit of both parties.

    Thank you all so much. Yes, I like the idea of setting a time limit and product stipulation, thanks Colin.
