I have searched. I have read many websites and listened to a fair amount of YouTube videos.
My real issue is that none of them have made a pricing decision easier for me. A local law firm is going to be rebuilding its brand and wants to use photos of our local area, which I have taken. They have asked for pricing up to 10 images.
From what I have read, I think I am going to offer a few different options.
- Limited use (website only)
- Exclusive, limited use (website only)
- Unlimited use per photo (website, other print materials)
- Exclusive unlimited use per photo (website, other print materials)
Does this make sense to anyone? I figured they are already interested, but might not realize that other companies might want "local area" images to use, that is why I offer the "exclusive" usage with an appropriate price tag. I will find out soon what they are all planning to use the images for, I am just pre-planning.
I would just like to keep it simple, however I am aware that it might not be. I just want to make sure I am offering the law firm enough options. This is the first time I will be doing such a thing and because "perception of value" is talked about so much, I would like to get it "right" the first time. That way future situations are a little easier and priced accordingly.
In the end, I am still not sure on a price because it is just for use. Pay me per hour? That is an easy one for me. Does my hourly rate apply to this type thing?
Thank you for the help and if I have missed something in my searches (here or otherwise), please forward me to the link.
