Urgent! Photo Usage Request. Need Pricing Help.

Sat Jan 22, 2005 3:30 am

This is my first big usuage request and i'm having a hard time using the online price calculator I found. Thanks in advance.

Dear Logan

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.

Regards
XXXX

So it's free distribution of 90000.

Thanks again.

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?

Vaman,

I'd say $150 at least just because of the extensive distribution. If it was a commercial magazine it would suggest a much higher fee.

Cheers,
Kaz

Trust me, you wouldn't be selling a picture to a commercial aviation magazine, to be used in an article, for anything close to $150.

ClickHappy, I couldn't tell if you were agreeing or disagreeing with the 150 price.

Sorry and Thanks All.

I haven't' heard back from them so I guess i must have scared them away with the $175 quote.

Oh well.

I don't think you've scared them off. I recently got $225 for a trade magazine with a 26K circulation. I bet you could have gotten at least that much.

No I would think know that a photo used as part of an article would go for much less that $150 to a hobby/enthusiast magazine.
