Could anyone tell me what the rules are when taking pictures of old cars? I see on DT everything, some with the name/kind of car and some without. What exactly should I be concerned with when submitting photos of cars, boats, etc. Thank you for your help. (this picture has nothing to do with my question)
I have both ( I think ) in my portfolio. Editorials are the way forward if your selling the specific model or manufacturer as the pictures concept. But you can also "remove" badges, emblems, logo's etc and then submit the shot as RF. They can/do sell on occasion :-) This is RF and this Editorial =
I only have 3 images of the same old car - my neighbor's 1962 Corvette. One image is of the whole car, another of just the dashboard, and the third of just of the right side tail lights. All were submitted as royalty free but in order to do that, I had to remove all visible names and insignias. I also left a note for the editors that I had done so. You can still title the photo as what it actually is - in my case "1962 Red Corvette Convertible".
I usually submit old cars images as editorial, at least if logos or plates are visible... By the way, is there any difference in the commercial potential between editorial and non-editorial images? 90% of my portfolio is made of editorials!
No expert here, but you can safely submit the photographs of old cars as Editorials. Don't underestimate the potential of editorial works. Some of my editorials actually give me more recurring downloads than the non - editorials. In fact , my best seller, as little as they are compared to the top sellers, is an editorial.
