Good morning everyone,
I know this has probably been covered 1000 times. The sticky about prices seems to be more about selling your images to vendors or companies etc.
What I want to know is-
I am a hobbyist by nature. I would like to cross over at some point to paid shoots. Simple stuff like engagement sessions, holiday cards etc.
I have shown people my work and I have had a few requests to shoot peoples kids with their pets and stuff like that.
I know im slacking, because I do not have a website, just my flickr. I figured I would not really advertise or promote myself until I had an official website so people could be directed there.
So my questions is...
when the time comes, how does one go about pricing?
Like for example...a friend was curious about me taking pics of her two kids with their family dog......so im assuming she only wanted an image or two...
I know it would vary by package but would you even offer a package or just the one or two images?!?!
Should I just charge for the time!??!
It's confusing haha.
So i guess im looking for advice on how to go about pricing thats fair considering I am no pro and just looking to help people out here and there....
