How to sell a photograph to a big company?
Jan 23, 2014


I'm an amateur photographer that got lucky and took a killer shot of a product that I'm sure would make an excellent ad for the manufacturer.

I was wondering if anyone knows how one goes about selling a photograph to a big corporation. I've never done this so don't know how much to charge, whether to give them full rights or just limited rights for a couple years; whether to sell it to them directly or via an advertising agency etc. etc.

If anyone has any tips on this I would very much appreciate it.
