Hi all, so I had a French Publishing house reach out to me recently having found one of my photos on the internet. They want to use my photo for their educational textbook that would have a print run of 50,000 plus 4,400 digital downloads.
The image will appear once in the book at a size of 1/8th of the page. I used a stock photo calculator with those settings and came up with $412, but I just wanted to check with all of you to see what you thought on what I should charge?
Thanks!

My daughter works for a major US textbook publisher and among the things she has done is sourcing materials for books and digital products.

She says that for what you described they would pay Getty or a similar stock site $90 to $120. If they could not find a suitable photo there and they really needed something from someone like you or me they would pay between $250 and $500. All these prices are for a single run. If they print later editions they would pay again if they continued to use the photo.

Implicit in Bob's post is that you need to have a usage license agreement that makes it clear what usage is acceptable (single print run of 50,000 plus 4,400 digital downloads) and that additional usage will be negotiated when/if necessary.
