    If I am interested in using a photo by an AP photographer in my
    website? How do I go about doing that? Contact the photographer
    directly? or Contact AP?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    They'll know when they get their next royalty check.

    So how does it work? AP would sell me a license to use the photo for a
    finite period of time? Has anyone done it before? Perhaps you can
    briefly explain the process.

    Thank you.

    Yes, typically you'll be presented with a licensing agreement that
    describes the size, placement, and duration of use. Usage fees will
    be negotiated around those factors. The bigger the photo
    reproduction, the more prominent the placing, and the longer the
    duration, the more expensive it will be.

  7. And price will often also depend on the expected traffic.
    For example a website that gets a million pageviews a day would pay more
    than one that gets a few thousand a month.
