PHOTO PRINT SALE VS LICENSING
Purchasing a photograph .. In providing a photograph (digital file of) I am the Licensor and you are the LIcensee
WHAT IS IMAGE LICENSING?
"The licensing of an image (photograph) occurs when the creator/owner sells the intangible right to use the image to a customer for further commercial use, while retaining ownership of the image. Thus, the income arises not from the sale of a tangible print, but from Licensing the Use of the intangible property. Typical rights granted to customers include the right to publicly display, exhibit, publish, reproduce or to create another product". re: WA Dept Of Revenue 2020
It is important that I retain documentation establishing the nature of the transaction to comply with Washington State Dept. of Revenue's Rules and Regulations. "The invoice, contract or other instrument of sale must clearly state the specific intangible rights that are being granted to the user of the photo. The fact that the invoice may have a line item for “licensing” or “rights of usage” fees is not, in and of itself, determination if the exact rights are not also described." re: WA Dept Of Revenue 2020
I set prices with 3 things in mind. (1) time and difficulty in providing the best digital file for your requested use which may take research, digital scanning of negative/s, possible digital restoration and sizing for project, if the photograph is not already prepped; (2) your use and the financial benefit to you or your company (commercial uses vs non-profit or educational); And, (3) in-line with fair market value. I review what other private, commercial and public collections regionally currently charge.

DIGITAL FILE SPECS
I have prepared and provided digital files of my negatives/photographs for licensing and physical prints for many years and would need to approve of other printers. In the case that I am working with another printer - I would like to speak directly to that printer and deliver digital files directly to them. Please provide that information.
