To uphold the good reputation of the photographer
community, please try to reply to photo usage requests.

I replied with the question if his site would be used for commercial purposes and his answer was a short and simple "yes".

I'm not sure how to proceed from here, and which things I need to know aswell/what to ask him.
If you guys could give me some pointers, I'd appreciate it.

This is what I usually do:

Non commercial use: no problem, but plz credit the photographer.

Website commercial use: keep it simple, ask 75 euros or so and ask payment in advance via paypal, then send a good file and licence (in pdf or so).

Kind regards,
My gear: Nikon, Sony, Red, Sachtler etc.
