    Hey guys!

    I have a music blog and I want a gallery with exclusive concert photographs with my blogs branding on it.

    How much do you think I should pay for each photograph? My budget is flexible but I don't want to overspend.
    Thanks :D

    Well, you have to gauge what they'll be willing to do it for - maybe offer to pay for the gigs and a few drinks? Depends how keen they are. Or offer them a percentage of earnings?

    in my town there are 2-3 big internet portals (hometown internet portals) and they just hire 2-3 students and they dont pay big buck... having "staff" around your neck is great thing :D

    I'm a professional event photographer from Hawai'i. I'm about to relocate to California within the next few weeks and would love to attend concerts and do photography for you. Send me a PM with more information, and how much you're willing to pay, my rates are flexible.

    I was thinking more a long the lines of I pay a set amount for each photo and I want about 10 - 15 photos per show

    Not quite sure what you're getting at...

    I'm not in California. California is about an 8 hour flight from the UK. I should be moving there though but that'd be in year or so.

    Just offer a percentage of what you can afford to pay. Or what you think they'll earn you. See what the person says.

    I'll be traveling the UK in the early months of 2013, perhaps we could still collaborate.
