Exclamation How Much Shall I Charge?!?!?!

Morning all!

I wonder if anybody could give me some advice please? A friend has asked me, on behalf of someone else, (I still need to get the details), to take ten to twenty pictures of certain buildings in the South East for their website. I have been told to come up with an amount, however, I have no idea how much to charge. What would you more knowledgable guys and gals suggest? Sorry to be so vague, but these are the only details I know until I can get holld of my friend!

Thanks to one and all, Jonny

Well Bonus Print charge about 16p for a 7" X 5" so, I would guess if you doubled that you'd be on to a winner!
100% profit.

Re: How Much Shall I Charge?!?!?!

I was just wondering if anyone else had done a 'commission' and if so, how much they charged. Expenses would be included in the end price, I was just after a 'guage'. Cheers for your comment though.

Re: How Much Shall I Charge?!?!?!

Gary Bagshawe has written a series of articles that address turning professional. You question may have been answered in there already.

Alternatively, I believe that another of our members ‘VikingPhotography’ has also outlined his usual charges for commissions in one of his recent posts. If you use the forum search facility you may well find that useful as well

Hope that helps.

Re: How Much Shall I Charge?!?!?!

For this type of job I would charge around £175.00 - £200.00 depending on how far apart the buildings are, if they are all miles away from each other charge a bit more.
