File names & IPTC after submitting work
Vincent Johnson, Photographer
Chicago | IL | USA | Posted: 1:12 PM on 02.23.16
->> I shoot a lot of HS sports (like many of you) and most are on assignment for publications. Every freelance contract I have basically releases me to sell work after 30-90 days. And with rare exception, after about 24 hours I'm not normally asked to submit more than what I turned in. No contract claims rights over unsubmitted work. So usually I will upload all the unsubmitted images to a gallery for sale.

My question though isn't a contract one, but more about personal preference. In general I keep the paper's slug as the file name, just in case a request comes later down the road, but I usually try and remove the stuff like "photo by Vincent Johnson/for This Newspaper" in caption and other fields.

Yet, with several different publications and slug names being more relevant to the publication than the images, do any of you rename your files if you place them public galleries elsewhere? Or do you have a naming system you use and only use the slug for the images you submit?
