I Need Your Help; and Indian River Lagoon Photos
These were taken from Ballard Park in Melbourne, Florida. They're both looking out from the park into the Indian River Lagoon. I've always wanted to ride on a sailboat, but as of yet, have never done so. I'll get out there one day.
I need to ask you folks a question. I've been approached by email about some of my photographs of the Indian River Lagoon. From what I can tell, they're resposible for advertising locally for a company that does business on the Lagoon. It's not a detailed query, just asking if I was interested in selling some of my photos they've seen, and asking my price.
I've never sold a photo. I've never tried to sell a photo.
Here's my question. If you were approached like this, how much would you "charge" for the use of a photo or set of photos. I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what folks like me should charge for this. I will assume they will use the photo or two that they've seen and liked, so I probably won't be going out specifically on a shoot for them. They simply want to use some of the photos that I've put on the internet that seems to fit what they want for advertising. What should I charge? What would you charge? What have you charged?
If you have a response for me, please email me at email@example.com. I would appreciate your help in determining a reasonable rate for the use of my photos, I'm guessing on a brochure or internet web site advertising these folks operations.
Again, please email me if you can help at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all in advance.
