    "Mr.Luise Gonzalez

    My name is Yoshihiro Kume, a producer working at a TV commercial production company in Nagoya, Japan.
    I ms a very big fan of yours and admire your work.

    I am now proposing a project plan for my client. And I would like to know if it is possible for me to propose a plan including your ideas .

    I have 2 questions.
    Q1. Is it possible to use your pictures on Japanese TV commercial?
    In that case, will any usage fee occur?

    Q2. Is it possible to use your ideas and arrange them in Japan and use on TV commercials?

    Your ideas are wonderful and I would like to introduce them to Japanese people!

    My client is a Japanese Pachinko company,Shinzan.
    They are making a world of amusement using flowers and women .

    Here are some of the past TV commercials URL. If you have time, please have a look.
    Thank you!

      How incredibly awesome!!  Their commercials are brilliantly creative; take a huge bow for catching his attention.  I am so excited for you - I can't wait to what you guys create together!

      (When he said they were making pachinko commercials with flowers and women; I first thought porn lol.)

      I watched only the first video - invisible machine gun fired by woman fires flowers, then she uses hand/fingers to make a handgun to "shoot",  then she finally falls back as if she is shot. I don't like it.

      Good luck, though.

    Such an offer is not so unusual. I've had print publishers and digital publishers approach me and buy a few rights to articles of mine they found online. I've also had a number of people approach me for permission to use images from a craft tutorial in their magazine and in a tattoo sample book. Looking online for new talent seems to be the norm now so, while I'd examine any such offers carefully, many of them are legitimate offers.   

    I'd suggest doing a bit of research into what rates photographers usually charge for such uses of their photos before replying. I'm having issues watching the videos at the moment because my Internet connection is misbehaving, but if they have videos of the type they say they'd like to use your photos in, then it's extremely likely they are legit.

    Your photography is definitely interesting so I'm not terribly surprised you've gotten such an offer.

    Be sure to find out what rights they want to the images and don't grant exclusive rights without payment of some kind. Keep your rights to use the material unless they pay you something that makes it worth losing your right to use the material. That payment could be a mention of your professional page in the credits or something similar if it's not money. If the videos are viral or reach a very large audience, a prominent mention in the credits may be worth more than money.

    Good luck and congratulations!

    Apparently "Pachinko" refers to gaming machines. Everything else about this gentleman checks out

        I never got asked about photos, but have been approached by people who have offered to pay me to write an article once a week, or another interval, in different metaphysical online magazines. I didn't take them up on it, as I had too much going on in my personal life in the past two years. But I later found that the money they offered me was quite good.

        Congratulations! It's great to be noticed for what you love to do!
