OK, here's the deal, several month ago I get a call from a client I have done several shoots for about doing some shots of his newly remodeled gym. I do the shoot and get paid, edit the photos and hand over the DVD, no problem. These were to be used for his web site and hand out fliers, no problem. Well, yesterday I ran into him and he was really excited, seem that he sent 4 of the photos to the equipment manufacture, which is now using the photos on HIS web sit as a slideshow front and center. The gym owner is proud that his gym is on display on a national web site, but I'm PO'ed that my photo are being used to promote a business when I am not getting paid for them. Now comes the problem, having done work for the gym before and continue to shoot for him, should I raise a stink or let it go. I was paid for the photos once, but never thought that they would be going national, thus no contract.
What should I do, other than to get a contract on every shoot in the future, let it slide or pursue getting the manufacture to pay or take down the photos.
PS I don't thing gym owner thought about it, I think that after paying me to do the shoot he assumed that he owned the photos.
