Extended Licenses & Money
Many photographers and designers believe that this is a big loss considering the efforts put in making that image against the price they receive for it. The worst part is about someone else earning more than the contributor himself/herself. While some contributors sell their images through these extended licenses, others keep themselves away from such sales to see that they are paid for their efforts properly.
I have some views about this situation. I totally believe that the pricing for such licenses might be low, but considering a portfolio of 1500 I feel it’s a good bargain. I am not a big-time photographer with great camera and equipment. I have no studio of mine. I agree that I just don’t click for leisure, I might be shooting for a good sale but then still I am not still having the status of a photographer who can demand a high price.
The image lying in my photo album or a CD without any earnings or lying unseen for years is more scary thought for me.
