G. J. Griffiths Wants to License Photo
I was recently looking via Google for “free grizzly bear pictures” and up popped the one I wanted. It is a grizzly bear standing on its hind legs in a forest clearing. I wish to use it on the cover of a book that I recently completed. Although it was not obvious on that site I discovered that it is one taken by your talented self. My question is would you object if it is credited inside the flyleaf with your name, along the lines of “cover picture taken by Daniel J. Cox the distinguished wildlife photographer” ?
Incidentally my first 35mm camera was also a Mamiya Sekor, with which I took my best sunset for many years! I eventually wound up with Nikon equipment and was at one time a field sales manager for Mamiya 645 and 6×7. There was a time – wildlife photography… oh well… Anyway, I am now a retired science teacher who writes books.
Many thanks if you have time to reply,
Graham, sorry for the late reply. The best way to get information on the licensing of my photography is to contact my office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are still interested in using this image I can have my office contact you. There would be a licensing fee based on how many copies book will be printed. Let us know if you’re still interested at the email above and we’ll see what we can work out.
By the way, I’m not sure how this image came up under Free Grizzly Bear Images since I charge some amount of money for all my work other than what I do for Polar Bears International. I appreciate you informing me about this and will take a look.
