  • Photo Licensing Fee. To calculate photo licensing fees, the standard charge is 10 to 20 percent of how much money the photographer spent to create that image, process, and edit it. The photography license cost allows multiple companies or advertisers to use your same photograph for limited amounts of time, as you decide.

Therefore if you separated your licensing by the image your total license fee would be $11,000, or $12,500. Not that much more then the bundled $10,500 we calculated in the article.

If the licensing request is relatively simple in how the image is used, one trick I like to use is to price out an image using as a reference. Getty has a built-in pricing generator for royalty-free image licensing. It's very similar to the FotoQuote software (itself an extremely valuable reference), with the benefit of being free.

A company has requested to license a photograph I took. They are asking for pricing to use it in a liive performance, a dvd, and an appearance on PBS tv. So I don't know how much to charge? Any ide...

They also want the right to use the image in perpetuity. I'd either charge them my full day rate + production costs (let's say around $2,000) or a licensing fee of 10% of their media buy (let's...

Most professional photographer rates include licensing for the images, not actual transfer of ownership. That way, you still own the images and the client can use them as outlined in your contract. If they want to use the images for five years, your commercial photography pricing should be higher than if they were to only use them for one year.

For example, a product photographer may charge £5 an image for 100 images or £2 for 500. Usage fees: Usage fees, also known as licensing fees, are what a client pays to use your image and they’re based on the amount of use or exposure an image is going to get and how long the images are going to be used for.

Per Image= $250 per image. Per Use: $250 per license use on image. If Client wants to use Image A, the licenses could be broken into billboard ($500), social media ($250) and print use ($250). Therefore, Image A would cost the Client $1000 for one image with these three license uses.

When you’re deciding how to license photos and how to set your photography prices, the more rights you are granting your client or the end user, the more it will typically cost. Of course, you might vary your prices a bit depending on the client.

Some commercial photographers who shoot primarily for small businesses and solopreneurs, prefer to charge by the hour and include a small number of images in each hour (5-15), for social media and web licensing. These rates are often in the $250-$500 per hour range, and may or may not include minor expenses like an assistant and some gear.
