We are opening a new business based on a patent-pending invention and will require 800 landscape photographs.  These photos must have the ability to be enlarged to 6 feet wide with clarity, thus eliminating most 35mm images.  We have had success with medium and large format positives and RAW digital images.  We can work with TIFFs, but no JPEGs.  

The images will be placed in our catalog and made available to our clients, who typically choose between 50 and 100 inages per purchase order.  Thus, there is no way to predict how many times a particular image will be printed.

The questions that we will not answer:
1.  What is our invention.
2.  Who are our clients.
3.  Where will the images be displayed.
4.  On what media will we print.
5.  How much we charge our clients.
6.  Anything that discloses our trade secrets.

If you have landscape photos that you want to sell than kindly reply to waltbr@verizon.net with a link to samples and your price.  It has taken over a year to develope this project and this is a serious proposal.  I am more than capable of shooting these photos and in fact already have over 300 prepared.  However, my obligations in management will not afford me the time for site photography.  Although our business plan includes a photographers salary, camera equipment, and extensive travel expenses, it will benefit our operating schedule to simply purchase the images.

You're asking photographers to sell unlimited usage rights of their images, yet refusing to answer some legitimate questions such as types of clients and intended use. Without such information, there is now way a photographer will know if they're being offered a fair deal. Sorry, but with the secrecy this whole thing kinda smells fishy.

I think you need to cough up a few more details before we can take you seriously.

The way the post is currently worded, I wouldn't recommend anyone take you up on your offer.

I see this has been responded to in similar fashion in the medium format section. So....never mind.

Look here and see what you think. The originals of these are from 4x5 or 8x10 originals: http://members.cox.net/jim.day/MoP/index.htm
