I have been doing photography over 10 years, I class myself as Amateur Photographer that mainly does photography for me and me alone. I have been paid to do many things over the years but normally its to do with motorsports and or events around cars so I know what to expect from a days work, but even that wildly is different from one gig to the next, sometimes it could be almost for free and sell a few prints, other times they pay plane tickets and travel costs etc so I know the next question is kinda charge what you like and see if they are willing to pay.
I was asked to go in and do some corporate headshots for a rather large finance company for one of there small events to go on there posters and now they want me back, but as my mrs works in the company I did the last job really cheap as a way in the door, I took photos of around 12 people very quickly with a single flash bouncing it off the roof to give them some high res high key shots so there media team could work with them. I charge £150 as it was all done within 1 hour.
They want me to go back and do proper photoshoot for business card headshots and so they can blow them up (don't know what for) but instead of my same bag and flash, I will be taking my strobes with me so I can control the light and back drop.. I don't have a studio so working off site doesn't bother me etc.
Normally with the motorsports its weekends so doesn't effect my work flow (Run my own business) but they want me over in the week so I need to factor in the costs I loose to go do this.
SO question is, what kinda money would a average photographer charge to travel to them and per person etc (as they have said sometimes it might just be one person, so traveling costs most be taken into account)
Thanks for your help in advance, I don't want to be greedy but I also don't want to do it cheaply as is only ruining the market for pro-photographers etc.
