Protect your interests

First thing I would do with any new work that is going to be submitted to the group I would have a clear licensing agreement in place to protect any interests you have in the photos. This way there is no grey area and both sides have an understanding how the images will be used.

Here is a licensing agreement for some free work that I had done in the past for a group that wanted to use my work for advertising.

Ian Forsyth grants free limited use of this copyrighted material to Jim Bob under the following conditions

Full credit to the copyright holder is required on all images entering the public domain

No modification to the copyrighted material is permitted

No 3 party can enter into this agreement

It falls under Jim Bob’s responsibility to meet all legal requirements before a person’s image or image of property is use in the public domain.

Any use that falls outside of this contract is subject to a new written licensing agreement.

When give out or transmitting a batch of photos I would include this as the first image, also add a text file with this agreement along with the files. All images would also have this agreement in the properties of the image.

The Camera is only a tool, photography is deciding how to use it.
The hardest part about capturing wildlife is not the photographing portion; it’s getting them to sign a model release
