Advice for a shoot?

hi, i have been asked to take a number of photos for a company in Belfast for advertising purposes and a prospectus; I am needing some advice for the job! it will be photos of a number of buildings in Belfast and some of vehicles on the companys site. firstly, i have not much of an idea of the cost of jobs like this, obviously i would not be charging overly high rates as its my first time at this sort of thing but i dont want to be handing away free photos at the same time. Do i charge more/less for it being published in a prospectus? do i charge for travelling expenses? what would a average cost be for giving the company the photos to use wherever they wanted for whatever reason?

i probably will have more questions but that will do to start off!! answers by PM's are ok as i understand people may not want to discuss prices etc on the forum!

thanks in advance,
Steve

Re: Advice for a shoot?

It all depends on what you want to do and how you want to deal with this client in the future, For this I would charge an hourly rate starting at £120.00 for the 1st hour and then £75.00 / hour after that. That would include images on a cd rom and a contact print. For this sort of shoot trying to cgarge them per shot used etc is just going to become a knightmare and you cant check all uses etc. you would be making a rod for your own back, trust me ive been there.
I did a job for metro the other day a half hour shoot in the city centre of some employees after a nice meal, £120.00 cd and contact print, client happy, me happy, on to next job.

Re: Advice for a shoot?

thanks for that advise gary, i have always been used with just charging for prints from motorsport events but this is a whole different setup. i see how an hourly rate would be a lot handier than charging per shot! by a contact print do you mean a small proof shot of each image or what?

Steve

Re: Advice for a shoot?

Hi Steve, I can't really offer any advice as I've never done anything like this myself but I just thought I'd pop in and say good luck, I'm sure it'll all go well.

HI STEVE GOOD LUCK ON THE SHOOT.

YOU DON'T SAY HOW FAR YOU HAVE GOT TO TRAVEL FOR THIS JOB, BUT IF IT IS NOT
LOCAL TO YOU, I WOULD THINK OF ADDING TRAVELING TIME.

ALSO IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE AWAY OVER NIGHT, YOU NEED EXPENSES.

DON'T WORK CHEAP JUST TO GET THE JOB.

BEST OF LUCK.
