    Wow, that 777 guy is still at it. I wouldn't send him a thing. There's absolutely no need for him to have such huge files, not even for his 'personal collection'. Anyone asks me for a free photo better not be listing a size request, that's ridiculous

    WOW, LOTS OF INPUT! THANKS GUYS
    Apparently this guy is a legend? A legend at being annoying, thats for sure...

    I know, I'm not sending him anything. If he needed it for his personal collection, don't tell me what size to send you.
    The ANET file should be fine

    I got an email around this time last year from a government contractor who wanted one of my photos. The guy said it'd be used in brochures and other promo materials for an international audience, and he needed full rights to the photo. I was all happy thinking that I'd be making a ton of money from this, and then I get his offer--$50. No more. It goes without saying that they didn't hear from me again!

    I would think that 5k would be a more appropriate figure for a full, unrestricted license with that audience

    But I wonder, what "should" I do?

    -Should I toggle the photo sales on A.net?
    -Does JP.net have similar options?
    -What rate do you think I should sell photos at if requested?

    Any advise would be welcome :-)
    Manny, I purchase stock images and commission commercial photoshoots for a living. If you
    still have any questions or concerns around selling work feel free to message me.
