I have a dilemma, awhile back I was approached by an ad exec who wanted to use some of my images of a resort for a 16 page brochure he was developing for an event for well-known company. I spoke with him on the phone, he was very nice and seemed very professional. We agreed on some terms and he sent me a contract. Throughout the development process, he kept in contact ~ even sending me some updates along the way.
As the date approached, I contacted him to see where it was at and he said there had been some last minute changes and he thought they might even be using a few more of my images. So I patiently waited for payment. The event has come and gone and I have tried contacting him several times and now nothing – no response. I started to question if it was even a real event, and since I have a relationship with the hotel in question, I contacted them and it was confirmed that it was a valid event.
I’m posting this because some of you may have come across a situation like this and can give me some advice. I am purposely not naming him in the case that this is some oversight, however, I would appreciate your input and suggestions.
In all honesty, I am hoping he sees this post and things get resolved as they should. If they don’t, do I do another post with his name to “warn” others? Let me know your thoughts.
The images posted are some of the images he used.
