Copyright and Licence for use

After the post yesterday about the misleading advice from Edge models I thought it would be of benefit to highlight the difference between copyright and licence to use photos.

No professional photographers routinely hand over copyright to their clients. In the main they grant a limited licence to use the photos for the agreed use; they do not give you the copyright. If a different use is required then often a different fee will be paid. For example the fee for use of a photo for a small magazine advert would be different to the fee for a worldwide billboard campaign.
