I was approached by my girlfriends friend to do some event photos and team photos for a couple of teams in the league for a pretty large soccer league. The normal photographer is unable to do them for some reason but apparently the normal photographer is still doing some of the other teams photos but no action shots. Now I have a full schedule with little league football but my football games are on Saturdays and some of these soccer games are through the week. I figured I could use it as some fill in work. So she faxes me a price sheet from the other photographer and she asked me if I could do this for the same price the other photog charges. I was stunned to see these prices. Her prices are as follows.
She has a whole price list but she is extremely cheap. I charge $20.00 for an 8x10 and $12.00 for a 5x7. Now I could still make money at this other photogs prices but I am pretty set on my prices. So my question is should I lower my prices for this because she is a friend and I may get a lot more work from this large soccer league or should I pass on it? I have always said these are my prices and that is it but I am kind of torn on this one.
