My post in new to photography ask questions did not draw any replies, so i am asking here where it is a little busier. Admin apologies if there was a better group to ask in.

I received an email asking to use some of my sports photos for a remodel in a restaurant chain by the person hired to do the remodel.

*full disclosure .... email was asking if I had any over 1 meg that I could send to them, so it appears they have not seen my work only a verbal referral. Or maybe they did and are going by the book to get the images. /shrugs

Option 1 ... point them to my flickr collection and say have at it

Option 2 ... ask what are you paying per image

If paying, are they paying in gift cards to the restaurant or in cash ? What is a digital file of a photo worth to them and to me. /shrugs

The person asks for a reply in the next few days.

I also wonder if release forms are necessary ? I doubt they will be putting the restaurant name under the image as in an advertisement, they want wall photos (i am assuming from the email). Would I/they need a model release for sports photos ? of minors ??

I shoot often at the HS that referred the person to me. The school yearbook uses my images (free) as well as players and parents copying any they wish.

Thoughts ? Suggestions ? Random ideas related to anything ? ;- )

Thanks all,
