This is my first big usuage request and i'm having a hard time using the online price calculator I found. Thanks in advance.
XXXXX magazine would like to request permission to
use your photo of a C182 in our next edition. It's to illustrate a story
about a pilot flying a C182 who has problems with his compass, and
discovers his passenger is carrying a huge magnet in his briefcase.
We would be happy to pay for the photo. Is it possible to get it
emailed as a higher resolution jpg?
XXXXX is published by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and
distributed free to 90,000 aviation people around Australia.

I emailed them back but i'm sure they wont be back in the office until monday. They said it was going to be part of the article, so I assume it will be fairly small. But I guess i can't make that assumption.

Just today I sold (right to use) one of my photos on this DB for $100
I am not in the business professionally and I took it as "found" money. In the past I have given the right for free for inclusion on not-for-profit websites and the like.
So I suppose it depends on how you see your picture-taking. I take pictures to entertain myself. If I have one I like that would be appropriate to this DB I submit it. Sometimes they attact attention and someone wants to use them, but that is just not the business I am in.
I don't think either my photography skills or my body of work is any threat to the livelyhood of any professional photographers here. If a customer wanted real, serious photography they would not come to me.
So whatever you can get?
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
