I have over twenty years experience of picture research both in-house and as a freelancer, for book covers – both fiction and non-fiction and illustrated books. Over the years I have gathered expertise in original research, following a brief, negotiating fees, clearing copyright, setting budgets, keeping within a set budget. I will provide caption information or captions themselves.
