Motion goes black when taking screenshots

The scenario is that I'm working on a build for my garage door. I want to run a camera that emails me a snap when it detects motion. I've got Motion running giving me a live feed and i've got SSMTP running that can send me emails. The problem is when Motion takes a screenshot, the screen goes black and the service stops running.

I am new to this and would appreciate if anyone could help.

It is better to use an URL providing you a snapshot from the camera instead of using the screenshot
