    I don't want to use a stock photo website because I want to buy exclusive rights to some images for a project I am working on. I don't need your best images, I just want some decent photos as outlined below.

    I am looking for 30-40 (or more) pictures that I can own exclusive rights to use online. I am looking for nature images, building pictures, scenic images & art images - there are going to simply be for some template websites I am creating. I will need to own exclusive rights of authorship and exclusive rights to these images so that I can use them whenever and however I wish.

    Please send me a few sample thumbnails and let me know how many images I will receive and at what price. I am trying to keep my budget under $100 - (that is why I don't want your best images).

    I am not too picky, I just need exclusive rights to some images for a project I am working on.

    I am looking for 30-40 (or more) pictures that I can own 100%. I am looking for nature images, building pictures, scenic images & art images, almost any related pictures will do - these are going to be for some template websites I am creating on the internet for a sample photography website.

    I will need to own exclusive rights of authorship and exclusive rights to these images so that I can use them whenever and however I wish.

    Please send me a few sample thumbnails and let me know how many images I will receive and at what price. I am trying to keep my budget under $100. Thanks!

    you can email me at JOEL -AT- DATAFLURRY.COM

    Thanks!

    For most of the people that are any good, you'll be looking at about $100 per photo for "not their/our best" and closer to $500 per photo for "their/our best" if you want completely exclusive rights.

    I know I wouldn't sell you any of my good, or even decent, stuff with exclusive rights for less than those amounts considering the photo is now basically useless to me as a profitable item.

    I wish you luck in your search though.

    This would require a Transfer of Copyright. My pricing for Transfer of Copyright for my ho-hum images starts at $5,000 per image.

    Copyright is owned by the author for their lifetime + 70 years so you would need to pay me the minimum I think my image will earn in 100 years time. That's $50 per year, per image.

    Stick with the stock houses.

    You don't need exclusive use, nor 100% ownership.

    I'll quote you a price, but it will be based on the number of unique hits to your web site. The more hits you get the more you pay. If your hits go down so does the cost of the images. It won't be exclusive and the rights will be for use on your web site only.

    It will cost you a lot more than $100, but maybe, only that much per month.

    It's entirely possible you'll find some green pea out there that will do this, but you should post in the beginners forum instead.

    Welcome to the business world. I wonder if you realise that 40 images for $100 is only $2.50 per image.

    Where are you getting those numbers from? Most professional photographers will charge between $1,000-$50,000 for exclusive rights to an image depending on its commercial value.

    I use my "not best images" for stock and I get between $1 and $10 per sale and each picture sells numerous times. Yet your budget is $100, which will not make it worth it for any decent photographer. Microstock may in the end be the best place for you to look at.
