Hi all, sorry for another of the rash of "what do I charge?" threads, but, well, this is a fairly unique situation that I've just come upon: I was contacted by a woman from BBC's Vision Studios and they want to use the, "original individual high res images to re-create an image sequence that we could animate." No where does she mention licensing, purchasing, etc. ... the closest reference is, "... enquire as to whether we may be able to please include them in the programme." At the advice of my Aunt (a graphic designer who's contacting some of her friends in the ad biz), I sent a reply within an hour: Basically, I was trying to get a feel for how they'd be used and throwing in there the unsubtle hint that I want to be compensated. But I really have NO IDEA here on what to ask for or if an offer they make would be "acceptable." On the one hand, I already have the images, and though I may try to re-master some of the older ones to make 'em look better, there's really not much more work to do that I haven't already done. And this isn't my primary income by a long shot (1 job/year) so I don't really have to worry about that, and I'd be tempted to accept probably anything over £1000. Though, my Aunt suggests that I accept nothing less than what Elizabeth Arden paid me for 4 moon shots 2 years ago, which was $3000USD. Towards that end, while I may not have much to lose in getting low-balled, and while I would not want to try to price myself too high and lose the possible sale, I also don't want to be short-changed here. If the standard is closer to, say, £10,000, then why should I only get £1000? Any ideas what's standard for a major TV network/studio to pay for photographs?
