    I shoot for my school paper as well...People ask me for photos all the time too, but since my school is mostly NCAA Division 1, I can get into trouble for selling photos without a license...So being the nice guy that I am, I give the parents copies for the D1 sports...Hopefully karma will catch up to me one day.

    However, I shoot hockey, which is a non NCAA sport, and I charge the following:

    Wallets (x4): $3.00
    Mini Wallets (x8): $3.00
    4x6: $1.00
    5x7 $1.50
    8x10:$7 for 1-3 photos, $5 for 4-7 and $4 for 8+
    16x20: $20

    I also put smaller pictures up online so the athletes can use them on their Facebook/Twitter, etc...

    As for the photos...the color looks off to me...what equipment are you using and what is the setting at for color saturation?

    The pictures look fine except for the exposure.

    What equipment did you use?

    You could approach it more professionally, from a business perspective.

    We markup 4x6's, 630%. ($12.00 each)
    8x10's are marked up 150% ($30 each)
    Markup gets smaller as print size gets larger, 20x30 gets marked up 100% ($100).
