Help - Selling Photo..

Wed Aug 29, 2007 4:28 pm

I just received a mail asking for prices for a one time contract to do some pictures...
They would be

- 2 or 3 photos of crew in action
- 4 to 5 photos of cabin crew in action
- 2 to 3 photos of crew showing simphaty
- 2 to 3 photos of aircraft interior
- 2 to 3 photos of outside view
- 2 to 3 photos of cargo services

Any idea on fair prices??

Depends on the usage... What are they going to do with the photo's? Who wants them (airline, ad agency, magazine?).

Considering how broad the scope of pictures is (and how they don't know exactly how many photo's they want) I'd charge an hourly rate for the shoot plus usage for each image depending on the answers to the questions above...

I would suggest a good read up on the subject. John Harrington's "Best Business Practices for Photographers" is very helpful.

I agree with Bill above on a shooting fee plus image use/licensing charges dependent on planned use.
