FuriousFotog – Your Image Licensing Investment
(Subject to change without notice. Rev. 10 January 2017)

FuriousFotog utilizes Rights Managed Image Licensing for its beautiful and unique images. This helps to prevent repeated use of these images in multiple applications, such as on different book covers, avoiding brand dilution and most importantly making the image YOURS. 

It’s not just a theoretical problem: in 2004, Dell and Gateway featured the same model and the same location in their back-to-school campaigns. Also, Wanadoo and Cegetel, two competing providers of high-speed Internet access, posted the same photo — Photoshopped a bit, but easily recognizable — on their respective home pages.

Royalty Free is no doubt a great value, especially with microstock companies now gaining popularity, but it comes at a price. Low cost and non-exclusive, unlimited use can create overexposure of stock photos. How many book covers have you seen with the same image on the cover? Case in point:

Rights Managed images can be more expensive up front, but they come with the valuable assurance that you, and only you, will be using the image.

IMAGE LICENSING & CUSTOM PHOTO SHOOT SERVICES
 
Please specify which option you are quoting when inquiring at furiousfotog@gmail.com.

Prices shown below are minimums.

 
PACKAGE A:
Exclusive licensing of a single, existing and available image for a trade/e-book cover or for an exclusive teaser.
 
PHOTOGRAPHER'S FEE + TALENT FEE = CONTRACT TOTAL
Starting at $600.00 ($300 + $300)

GENERAL TEASERS IMAGES ARE AVAILABLE AT $100 PER IMAGE.
NOTE: TEASER IMAGES IN THIS CAPACITY MAY NOT BE USED ON COVERS OR PHYSICAL PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS AND MAY BE USED BY MULTIPLE AUTHORS.
 
IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • Valid for UNLIMITED sales.
  • Talent fees are derived by the model or their agency. FuriousFotog does not determine the talent fee.
  • The $300 talent fee is a baseline to an individual model.
  • If there are multiple models in an image (such as a couple), a separate fee is applied for EACH model or a couples fee may have been worked out by the model team.
  • If the model/agency has a different rate, that new rate will be applied to the quote instead of the $300 talent fee.
  • Client to pay the talent fee separately from photographer's fee, unless otherwise stipulated in the Agreement.
  • Once contract is signed and payments made, exchanges of images with the same model are allowable (within 10 days). Image exchanges with a different model carry a penalty equal to the new model's talent fee, payable directly to the new model. Images may only be swapped once without a new contract being required.
  • All photos delivered for a cover are per the photographer's established style. It is up to the cover designer to make adjustments to the cover for your derivative work, unless previous arrangements have been made with FuriousFotog.
  • Please be advised that additional editing (removal of standard background elements, recompositing, combining elements from separate photos, etc.) constitutes high end retouching services and carries an extra charge, based on the extent of additional editing required.

The overall image count remains at 8. Finallyif images of the same model are to be used for a cover from a different shoot, Package A prices apply.
