Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time posting.
A "client" (who I'll call Jane for the sake of clarity) from a wedding I photographed last summer emailed me today asking for more shots of her mom putting on makeup. She explained that her makeup artist (who I'll call Nancy) asked her (Jane) if she could have some photos to use on her new website. I have not heard from Nancy directly (I actually don't even know her name).
I am an amateur photographer. I have shot several weddings as a second shooter and have been the primary photographer for some friends' weddings and have gotten a few wedding gigs through word of mouth. I am not a professional; I don't depend on this for my livelihood; I don't advertise; I'm not very knowledgeable in contracts, etc.
I had no contract for Jane when I shot the wedding. Again, I'm no professional; got paid but it was just word of mouth through friends.
I don't know if I really am bothered by this. Maybe I should be. Maybe I shouldn't. I think it's a little weird that the makeup artist asked Jane the Client for the photographs. I assume she hasn't even thought about copyrights, credits, etc. I would love to grow my clientele and maybe some professional networking would be helpful.
1) Care at all? Just forward a copy of the photo to Jane so Nancy can have some images to use on her professional website, nbd.
2) Ask Nancy to give credit and a link on her website?
3) Ask Nancy for payment for my photograph?
4) Something else?
Thanks for your thoughts!
