Hi H., the obvious problem is that the image is sourced to "Bob Rennie", which is a different person than you. As you wrote that you got the photo from Bob Rennie, the first step would be to check who is really the photographer and the rights holder, as the image doesn't look like a self-portrait. In case Bob Rennie did indeed shoot the image by himself, then you only need his permission. In case Bob Rennie did not shoot the image, then he needs to get the permission from the photographer, as distributing an image under a free license is something alltogether different than just printing it on one's own business cards. However, in both cases you should "target" him for the permission. As already explained in the problem message on File:BobRennie1.jpg, you should go to Commons:Email templates, copy the boxed "Declaration of consent for all inquiries", enter the filename (or complete URL) of the image, enter the name of the license of choice and mail that all to Bob Rennie and then ask him, to put his legal name and date under it and to mail it back to --Túrelio (talk) 12:11, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
