I am grateful, and believe our site visitors will enjoy these photos.
Am I correct to assume photographer credit should go to you?
If not, I can credit to the lab only or to a person you name.
Also, can you let me know if there are any copyright restrictions?
If there are, my practice is to include a statement in the image metadata or caption such as, “Image by Peter Dave, used with permission.”
If there are no copyright restrictions, the assumption is generally “These images were taken by a U.S. government employee on government time and are therefore considered in the public domain.”
We may not use *all* of your images for the new lab Web page, but I personally see value in adding all of them to the PNWRS Flickr site, so I’m cc’ing Yasmeen, who manages the Station’s social media.
If these images are public domain, I think they might be good candidates for Flickr.
If the images aren’t public domain, I suspect we will not post to Flickr (But I’ll definitely check with Yasmeen to see if we’d use them if the photographer was willing / appropriate rights were communicated).
Yasmeen, I’ll upload these images to the internal Web Team sharepoint, and send you a link.
