I haven't quite thought this through yet, and I'm curious about what others think.
In short, I shot < this > wedding a couple of months ago, the venue loved the resultant photos and added me to their site as a (not necessarily 'the') recommended photographer with a link to my site.
Today they're asking for permission to use 2 images in an advert they're placing in a wedding mag. with a fairly large circulation, and they seem to be offering naught much more than to hand out my business cards at their venue.
My initial thoughts are that this is obviously commercial use and not editorial and so (1) this kind of publishing is the least likely to generate business for me--even if I require an attribution, who would ever look at an advert and write down and look up the photographer ? (2) I should require payment for their use.
The reason why it isn't so clear to me what I should do is because I feel like I've lucked in to a decent relationship with a venue and I'm concerned about cutting it off by being 'all business' about the use of the images.
Another consideration is that I would possibly have used some of these images in an editorial way (shop around to the magazine itself, e.g.); and by allowing their use in an ad, I might be stepping on my own ability to do so.
Any thoughts ?
