Washington DC Photographer: Pricing - Editorial Magazine Photography

Usage for this editorial category is defined as: Regularly published newsletters, magazines, newspapers, and trade publications. Rights granted are first North-American, English-language only, reprints are not included, and a guarantee against final usage applies.  As magazines charge for the advertising which appears on their web pages separately and above the advertising which appears in their magazines, we too charge additional fees for images in the online version.
