I'm putting together a photo book and I'm obviously trying to keep costs down. The preferred image license structure would be Extended License RF, which I can get for $35/pic from Fotolia and Dreamstime. I'm starting to run out of image selection and may head to social media to gather up some more photos from undiscovered photographers. What I'm in need of is an iron clad license between our LLC and the photographer to use their photo in the book and have it be extended license to be on merchandise  Is there any license template out there. I've obviously looked and couldn't find one even close enough to tweak.  We're willing to pay for such a template.

Also what is a fair amount? Like I said, the vast majority can be found on microstock at $35/image.  What percentage does micro stock photographers get any more, 40%? For some reason $200/pic is sticking in my head as a good, more than fair amount for our needs, but do you think more or less.  I'd like to go as low as $150, considering a lot of the amateurs nowadays are getting $14/pic for the same type of license we need.
