    Royalities... license fees?

    Greetings,

    I am pondering about pricing of a license fee or royalities whatever you call it.

    Say there is a propective client who wants to have one of your files that he wishes to use for poster print for his business. The posters will be sold afterwards to visitors over the following years. Say the posters cost something like 20 euro each in their resale.

    I am wondering how to price that license feee. A once off payment could be perceived as too expensive, a royalty payment based on sale of posters is difficult to track for me and logistically difficulty.

    Any ideas on how to approach that?

    Cheers
    Georg

    Have a look on Getty for how much a similar photo is selling for with the same usage.

    You can also get an idea or another data point by looking on PhotoShelter. Search for a similar image. Click "Buy or License". Choose the Downloads tab and answer the questions of how it will be used. See the price.
