I'm just curious the amount of post processing in terms of quantity of photos you guys do per shoot will get. Does it depend?

If you present 50 pictures to a client, how many of those 50 will get PPing not including cropping? Does it depend?

Totally depends on your business model.

Wedding photographers probably process most of their images before viewing/delivery. The customer is paying for that service.

Most of my business is youth sports, where 0% of the images are PP'd before client viewing. We shoot to sell, so what the sensor sees is what the customer sees.

We have some events where we sell after taking photos: if they buy prints, we'll touch (crop, possibly color correct and NR) every one of those before printing.
But about 40% of the photos are bought in digital format where they get what the camera got, burned straight to disc and delivered.

Other events, we burn everything straight to disc: 350,000 pix in 3 days went home with 12,000 competitors and coaches from 50 different countries at our last major event.... all straight from the camera.

My work is Fine Art and I would think that I do at least some PP on 100% of the images that I sell or present to a client.

Only show your best work. Whatever amount of post-processing that takes, envisioned at time of shooting and otherwise.

+1

For event photography, post-processing is much lower and much less.

I do studio photography of high-end hand-made musical instruments. 100% of the photos the client sees are post processed. No one gets to see the "straight out of the camera" shots unless they attend the shoot (which I discourage), and no one gets "all the shots." For a typical shoot where I need to deliver 5-7 finished shots, I'll typically shoot 60-100 shots across 7-10 setups.

I don't shoot for clients but every photo gets post processing in the form of capture sharpening and noise reduction suitable for the ISO and camera. Then I zap the obvious crap, and then I review and tweak some more with white balance, cropping, better sharpening, exposure, contrast, highlight and shadow recovery, etc.. Then I rate and keyword. Later on I'll get around to serious pp to suit large printing or whatever.
