About Jim Pickerell
History of Selling Stock
Jim has qualified as an expert witness in a number of different areas related to
stock photography. They include:
The current fee for any of these services is $350 per hour. I charge for actual
time with no minimum. (In phone consultations, the caller must initiate the phone
call so the charges are made to his/her number.)
- Evaluating a stock photo business for the purpose of sale.
- Providing an expert valuation in the event of lost or damaged transparencies.
- Providing an expert opinion on compensation when there has been an unauthorized
use or copyright infringement. (Photographers note: The chances of significant
compensation are much better if the image was registered prior to the infringement.)
- I have provided evaluations of a photographer's file for purposes of a divorce
- In cases of medical mal-practice I have provided an evaluation of a photographer's
future income potential for the purpose of settlement.
- Providing opinion on the standard business practices in the industry related to
the storage, handling and marketing of stock images.
- Guidance in estate planning relating to the value an image file, and placing a
value on such files for estate tax purposes.
Payment for these service can be made with Visa, Master Card or American Express. I
will also bill for services, if the client is someone with whom I have had a
continuing relationship. Otherwise, payment must be made at the time of consultation.
