My original post was deleted for "non-descriptive topic". OK, let me try again, because I honestly need the advice:
I got an e-mail a few minutes ago:
We are looking for some reasonably priced royalty-free photos of civil aviation maintenance and airline workers subjects for use in our marketing materials (print and web). We noticed you have a few on Airliners.net. Please let me know the approximate cost of these photos in 300 dpi or greater resolution.
I started taking pictures and uploading them here for fun. I didn't expect to make any money at it. I honestly don't know how to proceed. Pardon my ignorance, but what is the standard procedure for this sort of thing? I would appreciate someone explaining this to me in simple terms. Am I selling the future rights to these photos in this type of arrangement? If I agree, what should I charge? And even though I own the copyrights to these pictures, I should still run it by Southwest, shouldn't I? They are my employer after all.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
