As one of the thousands of volunteer editors at the Wikipedia website, I edit various music-related articles, and someone has just gotten around to creating one on fiddlesticks. There's no photo yet and I wonder whether you had one, or could take one, of you doing this. If you could do this, I'd love to add it to the article as the representative photo of this technique.

As with all photos uploaded to Wikipedia, the photographer would need to release it under a "free" license such as the Creative Commons license, which would allow the photo to be reused for any purpose by anyone who found it there, although they would always need to give credit to the photographer. We would also make a link to your website.

Thank you very much for your consideration and all the best,

Thanks very much! Do you know who the photographer was, and whether it's okay to release the photo under the Creative Commons license? I'm sorry to bother you about that, but it's required that we make sure of those things before uploading photos.

I would assume that The Cantrells have the copyright to this photo. It was the result of a photo session that was intended to produce a photo which we would be reproducing on our own with no restrictions, and submitting to endless newspapers for publication, and the photographer didn't require, or even ask us to give credit when we published it. As a result of that we don't remember who the photographer is. It' a pretty old photo.

That's all I can say - except that I would have been very clear with the photographer that once we purchased the chosen photograph from her she wouldn't retain any rights to it.
