A photographer approached us during a parade 2 weeks ago.
She took bunch of Winston photos and gave us her business card.
Yesterday I got an email from her saying that she would be interested to take more pictures of Winston and submit them as greeting cards!! :shock:

She can give me copies of these photos for free but for an exchange that she can take more of his pictures.

Well. first I am really happy that Winston has made his first debut as a model. :wink: But what she has offered me, is this normal?
Do I have a right of her photos? say if I would like to enter it into a photo contest, can I do this? or does she suppose to offer Winston a labor fee or beef jerky fee? :)

Any advice will be good. Otherwise I don't mind just having Winston's pictures. I'm sure they are great! I just don't want to get rip off too. Thanks for your input.

I had a professional photographer take photos of my horse (unbeknownst to me at the time), which he used commercially, and I was extremely happy to get a set of the photos, which were breathtaking. So I would think that what the photographer has offered you is a fair trade. I don't think it would be outrageous, though, for you to require she ply Winston with treats, ear scritches and belly rubs.

I've been working in the advertising world for almost 30 years with my dogs. A 1/2 day photo shoot ( the photographer has complete access to all shots "purchased") should net you at least $200 with an agent involved (they usually get 50% of the total, an additional $200). If you allow someone to photograph your dog you have no rights to the photos or to any $ procured from any products in which the photos appear. Take care, Belinda.
