p.1 #1 · And yet another "How much..."


OK, Over the years, I've sold a bunch of sports photos (to parents etc), got my first (small) magazine placement (robots photo), and have sold a few prints here and there, but now I've got my first request for a shoot! Yep, pressure is on. The client is a friend, and mostly wants me to take photos of the cats,

What do you charge for something like this? Ignore the 'friend' part, it's just how I GOT the job, it doesn't effect billing, I was told "we were going to hire anyway, but you are better than the guy we were looking at" (good way to get a swelled head)

Depends if you want to do this full time or part time. Here is the simplest method of working it out, not the most accurate but a good place to start. You might not use hours if you are charging day rates, and the hours might include retouch depending on what you do.

Full time = (cost of business p.a + personal expense/salary p.a)/hours you want to work a year

Part time = (cost of business p.a + how much extra you want to earn)/hours you want to work a year

What ever you charge get every thing in writing, or y'all may not be friends longer. Since your asking what to charge I am guessing you do not have a day rate, or an hourly rate. Is this pet photography or some other kind of cats? What does your friend expect? ie prints,files,processed files,shoot burn,etc. Hard to give a starting point without some more info.

No hourly or day rate at this point, part time, house cats, and probably have a good time doing it
