, I love that part:
"I'm still not sure if they are using it for profit purposes or not".
Ricondo work with the American Red Cross and provide food and medicine to the Iraqi people who have at least lost one member of their family during the American invasion!!!!!
(ironic, of course)
What are you talking about???
Of course, they make big profit. And the government of Lebanon is paying lots of money to have this consulting firm work for them. You probably saved the marketing dept the hassle of finding a photographer in Beirut, send him for an assignment at the airport for a couple of hours, the exchanges of pics back and forth between the US and Lebanon, with all the precautions to be taken because of copyright rights, etc...
Call a professional photographer in Beirut and ask him how much he would charge for that (don't tell him why you are inquiring) it is my best advice!
$100 looks like a tip to me!
When I was a teenager, was part of the entourage of State trips, on several occasions I actually sold some of my shots for the fun of it. Back then, I was charging $100, but then again it was 15 years ago!
Keep me update, hope you can sort it out!
