I don't know if I'm seeking advice or just ranting, but here goes...
I have been approached by a person to purchase a photo of mine for a nearby Congressperson's re-election website. Unlimited non-exclusive web use. Talked with the guy today. They're purchasing three photos from three photographers. The other two have already sold.
He volunteered sale info. One shot was for $10. Might as well have given it away for free. Sheesh.
The other was for $20.
I told him that I'll seem expensive by comparison. I sold a similar shot for virtually identical purposes to the local state university earlier this year for $49... which is still kind cheap, I think, but I was satisfied with that.
He didn't like that answer. Talked about taxpayer money (not my problem) and questioned how many times I had already sold it (not his concern), then went on to say the complete overhaul of their website is going to cost a few thousand already.
I offered to split the difference and sell at $35. Not sure why I did that, but I did. Anyway, he said anything over $20 would be a no-go.
I told him I'd look into it and get back to him, but I'm seriously leaning toward declining the sale.
/rant off, I guess.
