I have been offered an opportunity to photograph for a tourism website which will go online on 1st September. The requirement is to photograph approximately 200 tourist sites with different combinations of shots, panoramic, night, sunrises/sets etc.
The shooting order will be left up to me, most of the shots are to be taken in a different city to where I live (1 1/2 hours travel) PP is to be my baby.
I have never tackled such an assignment before, it's easy to put a price on a wedding, portrait or similar, which is limited to a number of hours.
I'm thinking along the lines of a retainer and costs with a per photo used extra. I do not wish to sell the rights to the pictures but allow their use. The other thing to consider, is that if the site is successful, and I think it will be, my work will be viewed by thousands of people.
This is very good exposure and I believe is an opportunity that some have offered to do for free but the developers liked my portfolio better.
I cannot afford to work for free.
All help and advice will be gladly accepted.
