I was wondering what anyone thought about asking permission, about borrowing pictures similar to the quality cut that they can reproduce? I know many of use can not reproduce John's famous strips, but many of use can reproduce a nice quality cut with standard blade that leave a slight strip. Since I've noticed this has become a big issue lately, I wanted to know what everyone thought about say for example, someone asking for permission to use their picture under certain guidelines for flyer use. Something like such (and this is just off the wall ideas).....Notation stating that the quality of service are as shown in the picture. Pictures provided curtousy of "Joe Smo - Whom ever work it is" I figured that some sort of agreement or some sort of curtousy $ arrangement could be arranged. The reason I'm asking is because I'm changing my flyer for next years advertising. I'd like to take 1 or 2 nice homes/lawns and insert it into my flyer with the similar quality of cut that I provide. Nothing more. Ignorant me....never thought to take any pictures of the homes I service, and now I find myself with less than green grass and leafless trees. Not to picture perfect. That or my alternative is to get photoshop and alter the pictures of my accounts. I had always run flyers that did not potray actual homes, but either clipart or just text lettering and I want a more professional look. Any comments or suggestions or does it sound stupid? I figured it's much more up front and honest than someone jumping on the site, swiping someones work and claiming it to be their own.
