Arrow How much are your photos worth?

Many photographers today are posting their images online on personal websites or photo sharing websites. Who doesn't dream of having someone discover your work and ask your permission to use one of your photos? Ever wonder how much your photos are worth? Here's what Melissa Macatee, Contributing Blogger, Tip of the Day, PopPhoto Flash blog has to say:

"With so many photographers making images available online, companies are turning to what they think are people who will gladly give away free usage of their images. Reputable companies have budgets for marketing and advertising, donít be fooled into giving your image away for free. Photographers index offers a basic usage stock photo calculator to get an idea of what your images are worth and what you should be paid for them. Take pride in your work as excited as you might be to hand over your images just to see them published, understand you should be compensated properly." Source: PopPhoto Flash Blog

That's good advice. In addition to its Stock Photo Price Calculator, Photographers Index offers information on Copyright and Image Security and links to a number of professional photographers forums. All are well worth checking out.
