    Hi! Was not sure where to post this.. I need some help please. I got a Flickr mail from someone that wants to purchase a photo from me and asks what the charge is.

    I googled the person and it seems like he works for some consulting group.

    I would like to sell the photo, but I have no idea what to charge, or how, have never sold a photo before.

    I many of you photographers here sells images all the time, what should I reply?

    Thanks for all help!

    Have they said what kind of license they're looking for? Do they want to own the photo from now on, and use it whenever / however much they want? Or would they like to license it for a 1-time use?

    No, I will have to ask them about that, they just said they want to purchase it and asked what the charge is...

    You definitely need to find out what their use is. If they want to buy a print, that is very different than buying (for example) a photo that will be used in an ongoing way (as an element of their website or promotional literature, for example).

    Thanks for your replies. I will send them a mail asking about this, and will post here again when they reply.

    Entropic Remnants was approached & sold some photos - advice from him would be useful

    They probably email several people with similar pics.
