My brother in law and his wife are getting their law firm going. They're doing an "online ad campaign" of some kind and have expressed interest in using some of my photos as part of it. I'm not sure how I feel about this. First off, I don't get the impression that it has ever occurred to them that I actually make money from my photography and this would be akin to asking me to do photo stuff for free, which I have a problem with. I do very occasionally do a bit of work pro-bono to get up a bit of experience or get some extra source material, but it's rare and I'm not sure I see a "win" for me in this particular arrangement. Dunno. Now the flip side of this is he's an attourney... now living in my home state and practicing. That strikes me as potentially handy... and I think to myself "Well, if I wind up needing an attourney some day, would I ask him to help me?" I'm not actually sure what the answer is. Part of me thinks no... I'm not sure I'd be comfortable asking a family member to do something like that, and I think I'd feel guilty if I wasn't paying him... but I'm not sure. I wonder what his reaction would be were the tables turned.... dunno. Now in addition to this, I'm not sure how I feel about having my stuff used in this way. This isn't my commercial photography here, this is more of my artistic stuff. I don't know that I necessarily have an issue with it or not... I just don't know as I hadn't considered the works in this way. My initial reaction is that the extent of commercialism I want these things used for is for sold prints as "art" and to promote myself as a photographer... but again... I'm really not sure. I'm really at a loss. Very curious of anyone's thoughts. Thanks.
