    hey! Last time a company that makes calendars visited my site with photos and sent me an e-mail, asking me how much I would charge for printing one of my shots in their calendar as a "June photo" ... It's not a big offer and I don't know if I'll go for it but tell me how much should I tell them?!?!

    Whatever the market will bear. Things to consider are size the photo will appear and number of copies printed. Be very explicit about what it is you're selling. Limit the rights to one-time use, and you retain all other rights. Ask for a credit.

    I'd be happy with anything over $125.00.

    Good luck!

    Find out the size and # of copies printed and use the calculator to find out what the going rate is. Also ask what they were thinking of paying. This way when you calculate it, you will know where to haggle.
