Question How much to quote for a shoot ?

Small village pub has a new Landlord who would be interested in some shots internal & external for advertising via leaflets & web. I reckon about an hour of my time shooting plus another hour processing...so 2 hours in all.

Based on producing say half a dozen internal shots & same for outside, I assume I would provide prices for different options as follows :-

a) use of photos for single run of leaflets
b) unlimited use of photos for leaflets / publications
c) use of photos for 1 website
d) unlimited use of photos for web use

Is the above correct ? Do you usually put a time limit on use of photos ? If so, how much is a competitive price to charge ?

Also would like to create a 18" x 12" dramatic Mono of Pub to offer for hanging in pub.... how much for that ?

Any Pro's want to share how much they would charge, taking into account the people running the pub are a small business ?

Re: How much to quote for a shoot ?

Is the pub owned by the landlord or a brewery? It is the owner that you need to negotiate with.

You don't say if you use the pub regularly. If you do, perhaps a fee that will not 'cost' the landlord directly may be appropriate. I am, of course, referring to free beer for life.

You could always then use the images to try to sell the idea of photographing their pubs to other publicans (or the brewery) to make money.

Fair exchange for two hours work?

Re: How much to quote for a shoot ?

Being as he is a new landlord and is looking to increase his business through your expertise I would look at this as a two way street. If I were in your shoes I would ask a fee to cover your time but make sure you mention that this shoot would normally cost x amount but you will do it a greatly discounted price for displaying a gallery of your images in the pub which will be for sale. The advantages of this are twofold: he gets free artwork for his walls (as he is a new landlord he may well be re-decorating and putting his own stamp on the place) which will hopefully change as you sell images, you also get exposure for your work, just remember to put your contact details on the back or wherever. Free beer is also a good incentive as Dabhand as already stated.

When I lived in Wiltshire my local pub would take any trout caught by me when I used to go fly fishing and about once a month my wife and I would have a free meal there as a thank you, if he is a good landlord he will be quite happy to do trades.

That will be 20% commission please.

Re: How much to quote for a shoot ?

Cracking idea re prints on wall....didn't think of that Seeing as I have 10, 18"x12" prints sat back here I don't need for Warwick disply until Autumn , they'll do the job nicely.

Thanks Colin ..... luckily I provided advice on your contracting query to cancel the commission

Re: How much to quote for a shoot ?

Dave, some years ago I used to take photos at social events for a local company (part of a large group). Though I was being paid very well, I became bored as photography was supposed to be hobby and I already had a well paid full time job. They wanted a further event photographed and I suggested thay they contacted a professional. After a while they came back to me and said that no professional would take the job as it was on a Bank holiday so I could name my price. I definitely did not want the job so multiplied my usual rates by four and, while they twitched, they agreed. So if you are not really bothered about the job, play hard to get and you might do well.

On the other hand the advice about keeping in with the local Landlord seems very sound.

Thanks DC. There is something to be said about being able to walk away from a job
