Not sure if this belongs here or if I should post it over in the business forum...but I figure someone here will have some useful input as well.
I was recently contacted by a PR representative from a winery that I recently shot a wedding at. They would like to have copies of a few of my images from the wedding for their website.
I've never dealt with a situation like this, how would this typically be handled? I am assuming that there are a few ways to go about this.
#1. I could charge them for each shot since they will be using them for marketing purposes.
#2. I could give the shots to them and attempt to work out some form of business relationship in terms of being their exclusive event photographer. (Discounted reception booking rates if the couple uses me as their photographer)
#3. A combination of the top two scenarios
Also, I am assuming that I should contact the bride and groom to let them know the situation, despite the fact that I do have verbage in my contact about retaining rights to use my photos however I wish.
I would appreciate any insight on the best way to handle a situation like this. Are there any steps or processes that I should do to make sure that I cover myself?...and finally how would I price something like this? (if I were to choose to sell them the photos.) I have always thought of pricing in terms of packages and not so much individual pictures...especially those that will be used for marketing on a company website...so this is a bit new for me.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
