Pricing help on a request for a CD of images.

I was asked by the local botanical gardens and the local newspaper to take some pictures of a hospital that has a garden, for an upcoming newspaper article.

The hospital ( a very large chain is that makes any difference) really liked the pictures and rather than just choose some favorites and buy those, they would like me to put them all on a CD and sell them the original full sized JPG images.

It is about 100 images. I have no clue what to charge for that. Anyone have ideas how to proceed? I don't want to overprice these images and have no problem giving them the originals for a price.

Thanks

I am sure they would use them for marketing purposes in advertisements, magazine and newspaper articles, internal publishing use and possibly it was discussed they would blow the pictures and create large displays of them to hang in the hospital.


Do you know the intended use? I'd price differently for marketing materials than pure display.

You probably won't overcharge Don - 100 images at full resolution, for a world-wide unlimited use license , this will amount to quite a bit of money. They are probably thinking that, as an amateur, you will vastly undercharge. Do yourself, and the industry, a favor and don't.

This is a website that aggregates information on photography pricing. It's free (I think - it was when I joined) and it is also very large. The information there is solid.

Good luck!

It worked last night and it's working now. Maybe they do maintenance at the time you checked. Give it another go.
