I have had an email about selling a digital file of one of my images.
This is what he said -
"I promote efficiency products to companies that lower their operating costs and environmental impact. I was thinking about using your photo as an anchor graphic and add a slogan. I'm under a deadline and have already started the design process, but I'd still like to incorporate it if I can fit it into my budget. How much are you asking?"
Could anyone tell me if there are any draw backs (as its an image of my son) and how much i should charge if i did go ahead.. Is there anything i should be asking.

Unlikely hurt your son, unless he gets greedy and starts asking for modelling fees and who knows - £100....which he will probably not agree to.
exact usage , where , how long for , ownership remains with you dont agree to anything else , but if all seems fair then make yourself a few quid and buy the lad a pressie !
I would let him know that using the picture without permission is a breach of copyright. Your son needs to give permission too if he is not a minor. Ask to see all artwork including the slogan before you approve use of the picture. Ask for company details and check them on Google etc. If all checks out negotiate.

Flippin 'eck - that's a bit OTT at this stage.
Don't do what Ken suggests. It's totally OTT. The guy could have easily stolen your picture but he's doing the right thing by contacting you so don't make threats. I'd ask £50 for five years' single use.
Many thanks for all your help. I have sold it him but he is saying it may be to small to print on a 4ft wide panel. The file i sent him, which is the largest is 2.4 MB. He is waiting to here from his graphics designer. Has anyone any idea if it can be printed that big.
Continuation of the file size discussion...
