View Full Version : Freelance on call

I've got an offer to be on call for a local university's PR dept. They have several photographers that they use as needed and are interested in my services. I have set prices for my printed work which is how they found out about me.
But how does one charge for doing freelance event work? By the images they use, or the hour or both?
Couldn't find anything doing a search so maybe someone here can help me?

For pure freelance, generally the client pays only for what he wants to use.
For on-call freelance, generally you charge an hourly rate for being on-location, and then generally the client pays a usage fee also.
Do you see the distinction? It kind of depends on whether you are the buyer or the seller who makes the price structure.

Typical freelance at this university is on a per shot basis only. Mainly because there isn't a lot of time involved. They tell you what they want, you take the picture and sell it to them. The fees running from $80 - $100ish depending digital or film costs.
However, if you are shooting on the clock -- such as recording art for a gallery or something -- then you are paid by the hour with an additional charge per roll of film.
All prices in CDN.
