I'll try to make this quick and hopefully make sense at the same time.
I am a REALTOR and my local association executive called me today and asked me if I wanted to set up for a day to take headshots for the members. My first thought was absolutely but then she told me last year the guy that did it charged $10 for 1 print (I'm assuming 5x7 or close) and the money was donated to the state organization they were raising money for. I told her there was no way he drove here and did all these headshots, printed a photo, and then donated the money he did charge leaving him with a loss. She said that he would up charge if they wanted an edited headshot sent through email for them to use. I'm trying to figure out how to make this work for everyone involved without taking a bath in losses as I am a REALTOR and serve on various committees. My first thought is to just say no and let them get someone else but then I wouldn't even have the chance to have someone pay for a headshot with me as they will just get it from him. I have a photography business and offer headshots and hate to think someone else would be coming in to do them so much cheaper but I also hate the fact that I won't be making anything near what I would if I did them outside of this event.
Anyone ever run into this type of situation? What's your opinion?
