Hi! Was not sure where to post this.. I need some help please. I got a Flickr mail from someone that wants to purchase a photo from me and asks what the charge is.

I googled the person and it seems like he works for some consulting group.

I would like to sell the photo, but I have no idea what to charge, or how, have never sold a photo before.

I many of you photographers here sells images all the time, what should I reply?

Thanks for all help!

Have they said what kind of license they're looking for? Do they want to own the photo from now on, and use it whenever / however much they want? Or would they like to license it for a 1-time use?

You definitely need to find out what their use is. If they want to buy a print, that is very different than buying (for example) a photo that will be used in an ongoing way (as an element of their website or promotional literature, for example).
