Anyone ever license a photo for a music album?
Nov 11, 2011

I was just contacted by the manager for an indie group, well-known in it's genre with prior successful albums and currently on tour.

They want to use one of my shots for the cover of the next release (yes, I know, there aren't really 'albums' anymore) and wish to negotiate for licensing rights.

I'm at east with legal language and licensing issue as I work in that business, but I have never sold (or tried to sell) a photo of mine before.

Since I don't know their circumstances (it's a small label), and I've never done this before, I have zero idea what sort of sums of money would be reasonable.

Anyone?
