Hello everyone,

There is a company interested in using one of my underwater images for a comsumer product label. It is a picture of kelp that I took a year or so ago. I was wondering what kind of money I should be asking for. Anyone here ever sold a photo?

It's for a product called "Sea Kelp" - a beauty product made with kelp. I have no idea how they plan on using the photo.

Any ideas, I have no idea what would be a fair price. I was told it wouldn't be much, but I don't have any idea what current rates are as I do this pretty much as a hobby...
