How do you approach this and explaining to clients?

Usually I think about the value of the photos to potential clients and their ability to pay. If someone basically just wants a photo for their Facebook feed, then I don't bother with asking for a payment, as long as providing them the image requires no work on my part. For nonprofits that I approve of, I may even do a bit of free work for them, such as providing a full resolution image, but I ask for attribution.

If they plan on using the photos for commercial advertising or otherwise for profit, then I'll look at the prices as offered for similar photos on higher-end stock agencies, and match the price for an identical use, and send them a contract.
