A newspaper in Portugal wants to buy some images from me for an article they're doing on Heather of JCsGirls but i don't know what to charge. Anyone wanna share what they know?

I saw her on tv last night being interviewed by one of those preachers on how she pushes her agenda on dancers. Anyway I think it depends on what they want to say about her in the article. If it is a positive article and not a right wing paper give them a break on the price. If it is a right wing paper charge them an arm and a leg..They have plenty of money.. If it is a nagitive article blow them off...

I have herd of people getting $200 for an average shot.

Why charge anything different than what you would to a domestic company?

maybe i didn't word my question right, the fact is, i don't know what would be a usual and customary fee to a newspaper. i don't do any of that and haven't had experience selling to the news media.

thanks. i don't know what the angle is for the article. not even sure it's been written yet. but since heather directed them to me, i'm figuring she's okay with what they're planning to do with the article.

I get about $50/image from most papersm, if they pay me. If they want it for a cover, I might ask a little more. If it's going to be on the inside, and it's a small rag, $50 may be too much.

Usually the client (in your case JCGirls) pays for the images and promo rights which includes newspaper usage. I shot a ceremony for a very large hotel in Jacksonville and they paid me my commercial rates and used the images in newspapers, newsletters, the company site, and even sent them out over the wire. I'm sure that the images were published in loads of industry specific magazines and I'll never know.

Newspapers are usually very cheap. I have had front page color photos in major markets in the past which averaged around $75.00 a pop. The $50.00 figure is a good starting point if it's a decent sized city, for a small town paper good luck at $25-$35.00.

All in all it's cool to get some internation credits, be sure to ask for a copy or two.

I sell my images to the local paper in my area for $100.00 per shot it is a small paper and has a distribution of about 15k.

I've recently sold some pics to a UK paper for about 135 bucks a pop.

I sold one pic to Playboy back in 1980, they paid 200 bucks for a 1/8 page.

This may be something like what you're after. You should charge the equivalent to what you would charge a local newspaper. It is a global market.
