Maybe they can also share their experiences in their first couple of years on jobs, what their approach was?

I would have ask people to hire me and pay me for 'my time & expenses to do the work' when I first started, because I started before the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 was passed.

So I know how that works, as well as how licensing works, as a result.

Today, I would pay my assistants for their time & expenses to help me do the work, and then I would charge my clients for a licence to use that work.

There are many different market segments.

I may very well be wrong, but I have gotten the impression that you may be doing a lot of high end architectural photography, and your typical clients might be magazines (or owners of high end properties).

I can very well see how a limited use business model can work in that environment.

Do you do a lot of work i other market segments?


Consider a situation where someone wants a single large print of a photo of their mansion to hang on the wall in their office.   Would you pay your assistants for their time and expenses, and charge the client only a low licensing fee?  After that all, they only want one copy of the print, so it will have extremely low distribution, and be limited to a very small geographic area.
