Washington DC Photographer: Stock Photography - Magazine Reprints

Common Mis-nomer: Reprints from editorial magazines are not the same as editorial photography. While the original use of the images was editorial in nature, the reprints are used as a marketing and promotional tool by companies, and as such, are priced between the fees for straight advertising and straight editorial. This type of usage could be referred to as “advertorial.”  While you, as the client, may have been contacted by the publication in which the article appeared, or you may have made the initial contact, permission to use the photographs which appear in the article can only be granted by the photographer, who is the copyright holder. Magazines cannot grant anyone the right to reproduce an article in which photographs I have taken appear, without my expressed written consent.
