 Post subject: Samples
PostPosted: Mon May 10, 2010 4:09 pm 
I snapped some photos at a motorsport event at the weekend, and a company who were sponsoring a car are interested in purchasing some for promotional use. I've never sold any work before, and was wondering if I should place some faint writing over the image to indicate it's only a sample, to prevent them using it without permission. Would this be a good idea, and if so, how should I go about doing so? I have photoshop, but I'm unsure what to place over the image. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Adam

Also, what prices would you recommend charging per image? It's only a small business I'm potentially selling to, and I have no idea what to charge (GBP)

I would go for a nice watermark. Make some text, fairly large, with your name and/or your website. Then change the opacity of that layer to, say, 60%. I'd use white text.

worst case scenario, they use the picture without authorization, your name is still published, and you can sue them afterwards and prove the picture was yours ;)

pricing...depends on the usage, really.

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".

The company interested is
I assume they just want to use the images on their website, and perhaps flyers, that type of thing. What prices would be suitable per photo? I've offered them the usage rights to the photos, to use as they want.
