I received this email today.

Is it a legit request for image use?

The attached W-8 is a tax form with 7 pages of fine print.

 

Hi Andrew,

 
We'd like to use the attached Canberra image in Sport Diver Asia Pacific's Sept/Oct 2013 issue. May I please have the high resolution file?
 
I've also attached a W-8 for you to complete when you can. Please email it back with your phone number. I'll use your contact information to send you our stock photography contracts. Sport Diver Asia Pacific is a digital, subscription based, password protected publication. We're licensing for an audience of 30,000, but because it is new we're nowhere near that number yet.

The "page rates" are:
Cover $250
New Inside Usage $75
Pickup from Sport Diver for an altered use $50
 
Sport Diver is our print, North American magazine. Here are the pages rates for future usages.
Cover $1000
2-Pg Spread $550
Full Pg+ $325
Full Pg $200
1/2 Pg or less $100
 
Thank you! Have a great weekend.

Hi Andrew,

 

yes they are legitimate and I have had one image published (in the US magazine) and promptly paid for plus a second request for the same image in the

Asia Pacific digital mag. Nice to deal with a magazine that pays quickly, vastly different to another magazine publisher that I had the unfortunate honour

of being published by.

 

I'm on page 6 but Alex Mustard pipped me for the cover!- http://pdf-giant.com...-june-2013.html

 

BTW if you don't ask they pay by check and the local bank will slug you up to $50AUD  :sick:   They can do a wire transfer which is $35USD :angry2: If they look

like they might want a few of your shots you can get payments rolled together to reduce bank gouges.

 

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Yeah, you don't need to fill in the W8 either. Let them know you will be paying Australian taxes and not USA ones, because you are resident here. Good job on the sale!
