Help needed in understanding press agency offer on my photographs.
Feb 1, 2012

I thought this would be the best place to post. I received an email today from a press agency and I would like to know your opinion of this as it is a new thing for me.

Hi Peter,
My name is Jim Leffman and I run a press agency in London called National News.
I was looking at your site and I loved the pictures of the mute swan cygnet.

Basically we supply all the national newspapers in the UK who are always on the lookout for amusing and striking pictures.

I know they are a couple of years old, but I can't find any trace of them having been used in the press before.

We can't guarantee that your pictures would be used but I think they stand a good chance.
Obviously if the pictures make we usually do a 50/50 revenue
split.
If this is OK with you, could you send me the images high-res?

I would also need a brief description of how you came to take the pictures, where and when.

If you could include a few personal details such as where you're from and your age, that would be great.

Just to be clear, we are only seeking to distribute the pictures and obviously you would retain copyright of the images.
We are basically looking for a non-exclusive license in return
for a 50% share of revenues.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
cheers, Jim
PS here are some similar pictures that we have had in papers.
