My name is Cedric, i am a french visual artist in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro).
First of all, i wanted to congratulate you for the photos you have taken (i love the 2$ portraits).
This is one of the reason i am getting in touch with you.
I ‘would like very much to use your 2$ portraits photos for inspiration (ie: http://www.flickr.com/photos/justinbeck/4040015378/ and others if possible). I am working with digital painting and i am mainly focused on portrait as you can see on my website http://www.cedvernay.com….but i am not a photographer, or not as good as you.
Would you agree to give me full permission to build my artwork upon your pictures?
For sure i would put the credit with your name.
Please let me know if you are ok with this.
