This is not a "how much do I charge" question, as it is more a "how does it work" questions.
Here is the deal. In 2015 we have Women's World Cup Soccer hosted in my City. I know that shooting for the big news wire services is likely out of the questions as they already have people here.
Talking with a couple News-wire guys they suggested that once the draws get set, and we know which teams are playing here, to contact news outlets in the foreign countries, as they are less likely to have someone coming, and see if I can shoot for them.
Sounds like a great idea, While I get the fee structure for news-wire, I am not sure of the structure of direct contacting a news outlet. If say, Zambia were playing and I contacted the National Zambian newspaper, what fee structure is expected? Do I shoot and they buy what they want at $50-$100 a photo, is it a fee for all photos? just not sure.
Hate to start contacting outlets without understanding the structure. Anyone able to share some perspective?
