We signed a contract with a clause that I had inserted and they agreed to. "No editing whatsoever without my written consent".

Did they present you with 'the contract' or did you present them with 'the contract'?

And did you both actually sign it after you inserted the clause?

They presented me with the contract. I asked for the 'editing' condition to be inserted. They sent back an amended contract. We both signed it. The image included some cardboard boxes with a certain company logo on them from the 1920's. That company still exists.

I'm just putting it down to a multinational using bullying tactics. Live and learn.

So if they had told to you that they needed to remove the logos, what would you have said?

Yes I would have 'removed' the logos if asked to do so.

Where you wanting paid more to do this - or what other difference would there have been between you removing the logos and them removing the logos?

If they had asked me I would have removed the logos. The way they removed them was by simply putting a block of colour over them. Rather than any attempt of blending in their edit was very obvious.

No big deal. The calendar went all over the world. There were credits for the photographs. More money would have been nice but I was fully aware of what they may offer. In the end it was a bit of an 'ego' trip to know my image was used. But it never made any differences to my fame or fortune!!!

I thought I made a mistake once. But I was wrong!
