I just received a request to sell a picture I took, to the airline that is operating the plane. It's a smaller charter operator, so not one of the big boys. They want me to quote for all rights usage in company promotional materials, as well as use of the same pic in a large framed print in their HQ.
I personally don't think the pic is very unique. It's a simply view on the ground from behind the wing (though quality is quite high), so I certainly don't want to exaggerate my quote. It's never going to be their centerpiece of advertising; I do realise that I should request some amount though, in order to protect those who try to make a living out of selling pics. Any ideas?

pffff... USA3000 may not be the "big bully in the playground," but they can probably afford buying the picture. I thought you were talking about some small charter company that operates 2 or 3 Islanders or Aztecs or the likes.
You know, something like this. This photo can even be found on the company's website, fo which they did not ask permission. However, it ain't my shot, and I told my brother about it. He hasn't chosen to do anything about it yet. (Weird situation, the owner's mother is our parents' next door neighbour.)

Edoca, I think you may have ogtten the same request my father just has from USA3000. They wanted full rights to the photo to use as a framed photo at their headquaters (which happens to be about 20 miles from myself here in the PHL area) and in promotional materials. Was this the same erquest you got?
I have not received any requests from them as of yet, although I do have many photos of them in the database as well. They probably got confused considreing my father and I have almost the same name.
I think Big Foot is blurry, Its not the photographers fault. Theres a large out of focus monster roaming the countryside

Yes; exactly that.
Quoting DC10Tim (Reply 5): I'd be a bit wary of selling them the rights to the photo as it means you basically no longer have any control over it to do what you want. Even if it isn't anything particularly unusual.
I know, that's what makes it difficult indeed. I guess it's already complex enough to quote for a specific usage. What do you quote when they do allow all rights usage?
