You'll need to find out how many pictures, what size, what the publication is, how big the publication is (what is its distribution), are they using them just once or several times, do they want exclusivity?..all those factors will have a bearing on the price. As for payment terms..you have the money in your bank and then they get the pictures.

Find out the above and we can help you some more...oh and Well done

What size image are they using, is it to be included in the book or is it for the cover? Those are very important and could make a big difference to price. Be careful with the print run...they are initially printing only 3000 copies but do state that there will be SEVERAL reprints. That could amount to many thousands maybe with time?


There is some very good advice in this thread

And some great advice and links in this one.

This link provided by Dod is also very interesting and should give you an idea of pricing.

At the end of the day though, you may just be happy with “something for nothing” so to speak, and have a few £££ in your pocket to offset the costs of your equipment. Plus you will be able to boast about having one of your images in print.

A great deal depends on how you feel and what course you would like your photography to take.

My favourite stock agency would rush them £75 for a 1 page photo inside a book, limited to 1 years use and a print run of up to 10,000. For distribution only in spain.

HTH?
