My name is Timothy Schafer and I’m working for the Centre for Sustainable Community Development at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
I’m helping assemble the graphics for a book on development of sustainable communities.
I was just looking at the photo of the flowers with the homes in the background on the springtime colour in Coho (_1040229)and was wondering if you would allow us to publish it in the book under conditions outlined below?
What’s the highest resolution version of this photo available? We need one at least 300 dpi at print size.
Some details about the project:
Author is Mark Roseland. Read more about him here: http://www.sfu.ca/cscd/directory/mark-roseland/; http://www.rem.sfu.ca/people/roseland/
The book’s working title is Toward Sustainable Communities: Solutions for Citizens and Their Governments. This is actually a fourth edition of the book Toward Sustainable Communities.
It was first published in 1992; two revised editions have been published in 1998 and 2005 to favorable reviews. Here’s a link to the last edition on Google Books: http://books.google.com/books?id=IVrrq4Zs2u8C&printsec=frontcover&dq=Mark+Roseland&hl=en&src=bmrr&ei=DLb2TfO7KIr2tgPYuLTfBw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAA
Subject: A compendium of “best practices” that citizens and local governments can initiate to promote sustainability at the community level, covering urban agriculture, recycling and waste management, transportation, land use and more.
The book will be published in hard copy (up to 10,000 copies probably) and in a digital format. It will also be promoted on soon-to-be-established research network that links communities and local governments with research institutions.
Conditions we’d need the owner of the photo to approve:
We can use it in materials created to market the book.
We can crop the photo as necessary to make it fit the book’s layout.
We’ll credit you, along with all other photographers, on the book’s photo credit page(s).
We don’t need copyright for the image; just permission to use it on the bases outlined above.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your inquiry.
Are you referring to the photo on the home page with the pink flowers? Or to the smaller photo (1040229)???
