So i am looking for some advice in regards to a potential long term gig i have coming up.
My wife works at a horse racing yard and i have been up a few times taking photos of the horses and yard life. I wanted to capture a different side of this industry showing the behind the scenes that it's not all winnners and champagne.
I have discussed with the yard owner that i can shoot with his horses at the training yard, gallops and stables and he has said he would pay for some of the photos however no useage and price have been discussed. He has seen my work and looked through my portfolio and is very happy with what i capture.
I know, i know i should have spoken to him about this before i started shooting but it was a very organic progression.
So.... He would like to use my images on his website to promote the sale of shares in his horses and for publicity.
I was trawling the web trying to find a release template but came up short. The photography will continue untill approx early December and a new agreement in the new year.
I spend approx 4hrs at the yard per session, around 2-4 hrs editing, submitting approx 30 shots per session.
Would charging half day rate in the reigon of £200-300 be reasonable? This will include unwatermarked images and use of those images on the web and for advertising.
Or would it be better to charge for the season in the range of £800-1200 again including unwatermarked images and use of those images on the web and for advertising?
I appreciate your time and responses.
