Default Photography trade terms???

I have a local photographer willing to shoot pics for my site in return for products. This will be my 1st experience doing this, and I'm not really sure as to what the terms should be. Do they usually charge a dollar amount per pic in return for equal dollar amount in product? What is the going rate per pic? Kinda clueless here, please share!!!

Ok i dont know from a photographers POV, but I am a professional blogger and we do review products all the time.

Generally its just a flat trade. Someone offers me an item and i decide if that item holds as much value as what I am giving in return. So for me, its advertising and my time to talk the pictures and talk about the product, right?

The dollar value is less important to me as the actual value the item has to me in my life. its hard to explain.

If someone has an outfit lets say they sell for $50 and i know i can offer $50 in advertising on my site/time to take the shots, etc. then i may find it a good trade if i want that otufit. If they offer a $2 hairbow, but its going to take me an hour to take pics, upload them, write an article, and advertise and its worth $100, i may ask for atleast $15 in bows to make it more worth my time.

So its not always the exact value but personal value.

Typically I ask for 3-5 shots for each item I give the photographer. You get professional pictures and the photographer gets the merchandise. But as the pp mentioned, keep in mind that it takes time to take the photos, edit photos and if the photographer is working with children, who are not always cooperative in photo shoots when we want them to be!
Also tell the photographer what you are looking for. Indoor or outdoor shots, what kind of background. What angles did you want the picture to be at etc. HTH - Good luck!
