How Much To Charge For A Photo?

Fri Sep 12, 2003 9:40 pm

I know the search is dead, and this issue has been discussed.

I received an e-mail from one airline. They want to use my photo (the negative, to be more exact) in their folder. This folder is going to be used in the seat pockets on their flights.

How much to charge? Initially I told them something about $100-200.

I appreciate quick answers.
Thanx in advance.

If its airline then request free ticket anywhere they fly. I usualy check prices on Photovault.

Hi

I would charge a lot more than that as they are requiring the negative.
What if they lost it?

It's up to you but think and plan first.

I did send a negative to a German charter airline a few years ago and it was returned safely with no problems.

The guy in question, who works for the ailine, now uploads his own stuff here. I'll let you figure out who that was yourself  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'm not worried about the negative, cause I can give it to them in person.

I got an answer back, they said $100, cause that's their budget.

However, I can ask about a jumpseat ride, or unlimited access to their a/c  Smile .

Anyway, this is Poland, and there are a few airlines here. It was nice of them to ask.

Hi Codeshare,

If you plan to sell your photos to individuals or businesses or both in the future, this experience could be a good competitive advantage: it would indicate that your photos are of a high quality.

I would accept $100.
