Last year, and for the first time, I tried creating and selling calendars featuring my photography. They turned out pretty good but in the end I spent too much time on choosing the photos, the actual design, promotion and the upload to the printing service and lost money.
I decided not to do calendars this year but was approached by someone to design a calendar for their business using my photos and their business info.
I already have some experience and a pool of photos to choose from so I suspect the selection, processing, some design work, etc. will take about 5 hours so I can probably provide a reasonable quote for the work alone.
This potential client hinted that the photos should be free of watermarks/ credits. What is customary (North America) in these situations? Should I insist that a credit be included or at least a line "photographs by so and so" printed discretely on the calendar.
The calendar will likely feature some of my favourite photos I took this year some of which took considerable amount of planning, travel, effort and post-processing to produce. How do I put a price on the "art fee" this set of photos?
