    Pricing for Shoot

    I am relativley new to having someone pay me for my work, and I have a Photo shoot scheduled for this weekend and I don't know what to really charge them. I will be shooting pictures of a campground (that runs specialty camps) for their website and a new brochure publication. Any thoughts on what I should ask for. I know the executive director, so the job is a garuntee lock, as long as I am not outrageous.

    It depends on where you are, the local market, how much the organisation can afford etc. Personally, as a newbie I would look at what the local photographers charger and also at your costs - insurance etc. I would probably do something like charge half what the normal guys charge as an introductory offer and require releases so that you can use everything in your own advertising.

    Theoretically, photographer's fees are based on usage. A national campaign would be several thousand dollars. A local camp might be a couple hundred (say $75 per image) for brochures, etc.

    Do you mean $75 per image in digital format or for a print? Sorry to sound like an idiot!

    photo pricing

    Hi there! I just did a shoot for an on-line magazine. My assignment was to take a portrait of a young just starting out doctor. I completed it and everything went well. Now the doctor and his family is interested in purchasing a photo. I know that the doctor may use it for professional use in the future as well as personal use. How much do I sell the photo for? And or should I offer a print option as well? I am a wedding photographer in Florida and I have never done this before? Any help on pricing would help me! Thanks in advance! Priscilla

    Photopriscilla,

    First, welcom to the DCRP. Always glad to have a new member. You will find the folks here pleasant and always willing to help.

    Please note that this conversation ended 5 years ago. Rhys is no longer a poster, although Rooz is still around.

    I generally get local info from independent photo shops in the area. Also check out the mall photo places as a base reference. They usually have some insight as to pricing.
