I am a hobby photographer and mostly document my travels and trips.

I share my photos on Flickr.

comment How to respond to requests to commercially use one's photos without compensation?
I don't necessarily expect an precise answer what to charge for photos. I just struggle to even find out what is roughly appropriate.

Thank you. That's some really great advice. As far as pricing goes, your answer helps, but I still don't have a clue what to charge. I take photos mostly for myself. I put effort into shooting, editing and uploading them. I do this for me and also so that others can find them more easily. If someone finds them and wants to use them, I am happy, but I don't actively try to sell my photos. When then someone asks to print a photo in their magazine, I would like to grant them permission for just that use-case and charge them appropriately. I don't even know if $50 is too high or to low. Or $500.

Great answer. I would get kick out of being published, too - especially in a fairly popular publication. However, it doesn't feel right to me, to give away my photos for free to a company that a) must have a budget and b) is making money off of their website/magazine.

I also have had groups/non-profits asking me. And I was happy to support them, too. And then they even compensated me without me asking for it.
