What license do you give your corporate portraits clients?

1 month 1 week ago - 1 month 1 week ago #654741 by Conner
I'm not so much talking about rates, but really the time and usage type you grant them.  I have looked at other corporate head shot photographers webpages and don't see much in terms of usage types and timing. 

I would think most want to limit usage and duration, but want to make sure about this first.  

Thanks in advance.

Corporate portraits are a highly renewable jobs. Think of the
staff changes, corporate image considerations and people
ever changing their very own style and looks at will — hair cut,
hair colour and what not.

If a picture contains a corporate logo, it is theirs, exclusively,
as ultimate end users, with unlimited usage. If it doesn't, it is
pretty much the same for the reasons given above.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Most commercial photographers don't charge for images.  They charge for time and expenses and turn the images over to the company that now owns them.  You can't deal with a company in the same way you deal with retail customers.  Perhaps things have changed but that certainly is the way it was.  Commercial photographers, in effect, become independent contractors for the company while they work for them.  It is no different than the relationship between a stringer and a newspaper.  So the "license" shouldn't even exist.  You don't need the images, the company does.
