I have a client that got married last summer on one of those "destination" places. Their package (you know, one price for everything) included a staff photographer for the day, and a copyright release, and all images on CD/DVD.
I didn't know the disposition of their "album" or lack thereof until I happened to ask them (I know the guy) how their pictures turned out, if they had an album, etc. He said no, they just have it on disk but would love to have an album.
Since they have the copyright release, and all the images, I offered to take that and do their album for them (either a KISS or a GraphiStudio probably).
Normally, I price albums at "$X for the binding, and $Y per page" -- but my X and Y numbers are priced on top of a deposit that pays my expenses, etc.
I don't want to turn them off by shooting them a huge number per page, but my time is worth something too. I will still end up spending a pretty decent amount of time on post processing, effects, layout, design, etc.
I know some people can do an album in an hour using layout helpers and templates... I still do mine in PhotoShop (until I get the time to learn InDesign, of course).
My thought, since this is a buddy of mine, would be $395 for the binding and $25 per page. That puts a 100-page album at $2895. And parent copies @ $395 each. Is that in line?
Thanks in advance...
