This might be a dumb question, but I still wanted the opinion of this group.
Portrait photography has been a side thing for me for about a year now. I have no desire to make it a full time thing as I love my day job.
However, due to some recent experiences I was thinking about adding photo restoration as a service of my photo business. I have done quite a bit of our own family's photos and think that my skills are good enough to offer to clients. Very few people offer this service in my area, and the one that is supposed to be the best in the area has had a recent slip in his quality (I think due to a staffing change).
Here is my question. First, do any other photographers offer this as a service? If you do, how do you price the service. I am not sure if I should set prices based on specific service (restore color/contrast, repair damage, colorize) or if I should just give a quote for each job.
Also if you give a quote do you consider it an estimate and then charge for what you actually had to do (time, outside scanning, etc) or do you honor that price regardless of the actual amount of effort?
