    Boston Red Sox

    Hey guys... I'm working on a new web project about the Boston Red Sox. I'm trying to find pics of the Red Sox that don't infringe any copyright.
    I asked permission to MLB to use some pics but haven't receive any answer yet! I also contacted Associated Press and they are gonna call me for a license agreement but nothing yet!

    I also visited Getty Images but the price their asking for one photo is ridiculous. I tried other searches in other RF sites but nothing good.

    So I was wondering. Do someone knows where I can find these kinda pics?
    Any Boston Red Sox fan that is willing to share his/her photos? Do you know any photographer from the area that can help me out?

    Thanks for your time!

    I had a look at istockphoto.com - stock photo library, there is not a lot there... about 22 images... some very useful filler pix, but not really any red sox stuff...

    iStock will not have these kind of pictures because all the images submitted by users cannot have any logo, trademark, etc plus the photographers have to fill out a form if there's recognizable people on picture.

    MLB is very hard to get permission from, and when they do grant it they charge a HIGH license fee.

    Hi guys... I was lucky to find some good photographers that granted me permission to use their pictures on my blog.

    I wanted to do this the right way, you know! So I even contacted Associated Press (AP) for photos. They wanted to charge me a yearly fee for the use of their pics, which of course I couldn't afford it - too expensive.

    What really piss me off is that I have visited other similar blogs and they are using AP photos on their sites. I don't think they are paying any fees for the use of these images. That gives them an unappropiated advantage over my blog.
