Hello I am a business manager for a fine art oil painter, and just as a word of advice, you should also get a release from the photographer. The have copy rights to their works, and out of respect for their rights, it is good to have a signed release that allows you license to create "derivative art work". In most cases I have had to pay a fee for this, but some photographers are generous in sharing their photos with you - and that is great. I wish you the best of luck, and hope you found this interesting. Take Care Rick
I am the protog for The Villages Polo Club in Florida. If you visit my website ( www.poloslides.com ), you will see a number of my photos, some of which are unique. These are only a small sample of my photos, as I usually shoot about 1,500 photos per match. I also have slide shows on YouTube (search "The Villages Polo Club" or "The Villages" + "Polo"). I have two slide shows currently linked to MyPage on this site, and will be adding others. I already work with one artist here in the United States. My current equipment set is a Nikon D3X (24 MP camera) with a 80-400 lens. This equipment allows me to see the individual hairs on the tail of a horse, from mid-field to the goal lines.
If you are interested, please let me know.
