Yesterday, I was approached by the editor of a well known magazine publisher via email and she wanted to buy one of the pictures on my blog for use in their October issue.



Since I am not a professional photographer, I was of course, thrilled and flattered. I was like, "Wow! Somebody got interested to buy a picture taken by... me!?" and I am not even using a big-ass camera! It was all a good experience, except for one thing. I have no idea what to do and how much should I sell my pictures for???

Hi Monica! :* :* :*

Wow, that is cool and flattering indeed to get an offer for a pic like that! I would be interested to see what they could offer, and get what you could for it(unless it is ridiculously low). You do take good pics and they stand out on your entries when you post them. :)

Have a great week my friend! :* :* :*

Monica! :* :* :*

*Michael said... @ 13/9/10 11:00 AM

Congrats!

*Michael said... @ 13/9/10 11:00 AM

Hit the jackpot ;)

*Michael said... @ 13/9/10 11:02 AM

Just take whatever offer + 10%? You get nothing to lose even if the price is low. :* :* :*
Just take it and this may be just the start .....

*Michael said... @ 13/9/10 11:03 AM

You may soon change job to be professional journalist or photographer =-O :-D

Hitesh said... @ 13/9/10 11:30 AM

wow Mon..... this is serious..... =-O =-O =-O =-O =-O =-O

Life Ramblings said... @ 13/9/10 2:53 PM

if i were u, i'd ask them how much they could offer. if it's a good price, then go for it.

Nessa said... @ 13/9/10 7:19 PM

LOL @big ass camera! :-D :-D

wah, you can be paparazi oredi Mon.. hehe. Unfortunately i oso dunno how much to charge for pix, no experience... *DONT_KNOW* *DONT_KNOW*

foongpc said... @ 14/9/10 1:41 AM

Wow! Congrats!! It's a good thing they wanted to buy instead of just stealing your photos as some might do.

foongpc said... @ 14/9/10 1:41 AM

I dun know how much since never experienced this before!

foongpc said... @ 14/9/10 1:42 AM

Maybe u just come up with a figure and see how they negotiate with you : )

*Michael said... @ 14/9/10 8:39 PM

Any updates? :-E

bingkee said... @ 15/9/10 9:50 AM

That's cool...if I were on the same boat, I'd feel flattered.....why don't you research first on how much a photo sells for if you sell it to a magazine, esp. in your area.

Monica said... @ 16/9/10 3:14 PM

hehe...thanks GG! :-D :-D

Monica said... @ 16/9/10 3:16 PM
