    I have been propositioned to provide all of the photography for a book that is slated to be released in two years, and I need to provide a quote in the next few days.

    Details:
    - They get exclusives, I keep the copyright.
    - Around 150 images (people, food, garden etc) All arranged and setup shots.
    - First run of 5000 circulation. More if the book is successful
    - Small(ish) publishing house. Fulcrum in Golden, CO.
    - First-time author

    They would like a quote for a flat fee for all of the work and not a per print.

    Any help would be fantastic.

    Thanks! :wavey:

    Whats the production budget for the book?

    I would try to snag about 10-15% of those monies for photography. 10% if it's over 50K.

    Is that something that would be okay to ask the publisher? I don't know the ins and outs of book deals.
