Are you looking for photographs to add to the individual records for each boat? Are you able to use photos that are freely available on the web under a "fair use" policy or do you have more stringent rules about what you use?
I'd be happy to contribute a few photos (and let you choose) for some of the record that don't have photos yet. If you'd like a few, what size and resolution would you prefer?
Thank you for the credit in the C&C 37/40 entries.
Thanks for your interest.
I really like to have photos. (one per record/boat type)
The IDEAL photo is one that
1. Aids the user to establish it's unique identity.
2. Stylistically, I like to show the boat under sail. - This is why brochure photos usually end up being the best, by far. And why I don't usually like photos that feature dragging dinghies, fenders hanging over the side etc. I like to make each boat look as 'photogenic' as is possible.
3. OR, If a user has contributed a photo of his own boat, I don't have another photo of the boat in question, and I like to express my appreciation in some way.
I Don't use photos taken by individuals posted on the web: (Blogs, Class/Owner websites, Yahoo groups etc.)without permission from 'owner'
I DO use photo's from those that are part of posted brochures (for boats that are no longer built, as well as those for new boats.
I DON'T use brokerage photos UNLESS, the owner, or seller of the boat, has granted me permission to do so.
There are other factors of course, but these are the basics.
