I recently received a request from the HS yearbook sports editor to use some of my photos in exchange for a "free" ad in the yearbook, as his staff was not able to get to all sports. I responded to I was willing to consider the offer and wanted to know the value of the ads. He did mention that if I wanted "money" he would have to talk to his adviser.
The next email I received had a list of sports he needed, football cross country, gymnastics, girls soccer, boys soccer, indoor track, outdoor track, golf, baseball, softball, boys tennis, wrestling, girls lacrosse, and girls basketball and that he needs about 15 images of football and basketball and 5-7 of each of the others. My first thought was "what did they cover?". This is much more than what the first email seemed to be talking about and would be about 100 images.
I would like to help out, but this is way more than an ad is worth and I would like to know what a fair starting point might be. I have not dealt with yearbook before and I know it's a fundraiser, but I don't want to be taken advantage of or take advantage of the kid in this situation. The HS has over 1500 students and I am sure the yearbook committee pays a photographer for student portraits.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
