I was given the 'ok' to take photos at out local rugby stadium. When asking the owner, (local Council), to sign the Property Release, the response was; "if it's for commercial purposes, we want a 'cut' too".

My question is to fellow photographers. Is it normal practice to pay property-owners? If so, how much?

For models, I assume it's sheer luck to have someone sign a model release without having to pay the person. Current fees for professional models are out of my range.

Any suggestions for a photographer on a minimal budget?

Cheers.

One common option used by photographers for giving property owners or models some value, ... is to give them a copy of some of the image files for their own use - on the clear understanding that they will not submit them to photo libraries.

Hope this helps.

My aurgument to the council would be that having their property featured on someones website or flyer etc would be like free advertising/promotion for them. Normally they would have to pay the photographer for advertising.....so they are getting something for nothing. Win-win situation!

Cheeky I know but it might work.

They tend to commission photographers for any promotional work. Thanks, anyway.

I get the feeling that Council frowns on their buildings being photographed from a public place, for commercial purposes....which, of course, is a great incentive to do just that.

Probably right goffers. Councils have plenty of ratepayer's money to employ a professional, who could quite possibly be a mate of one of the bosses working for the council.

Thanks, Mark. I guess it's all down to networking in order to open certain 'doors'.

A number of Councils purchase regional images from mychillybin too.
