How much will your costs be? That is the first question you need to ask. Second, how much is your time worth?

Take a look at this commercial website.

See that picture? That's mine and I have not authorized any commercial use of this photo. The production company had an entire album of my photos uploaded to their facebook page. I contacted Facebook about them not owning the ©. Facebook pulled the album in under 12 hours from my notification. However, going back to that FB page, I saw a link to the playscripts site along with my picture. I sent playscripts an email requesting that they remove the photo. We'll see what happends.

instead of having the pictures pulled, you should have taken screen shots, registered the pictures and sent them a fair but worth while bill :D

There are many good books on photography pricing out there. Some questions that will affect your final price:

What product do they want? A small mini-calendar with one photo, or a full-spread 12-month calendar with a total of 14 photographs? Your costs and effort differ between those. 30 minutes or less for your time on set for the former, maybe an all day shoot or 14 different sessions and locations for the latter.

How will it be used? Will it be for just one copy? Will it be "sold" only to members within a specific organization? Will it be used as a retail product with the intent to sell at least 25,000 copies?

If it will be used for multiple copies, maybe a base plus royalty is in order.


I have Canon gear. SX1 IS, two 7D bodies and mostly f/2.8 lenses 10mm-200mm, doubler, and 17/4 TSE, some 580EX IIs. Additional portable lighting gear, and tripod with 360 pano mount. Want two 7D II bodies.

Ok I have a question. The company I work for is interested in me doing key automotive shots for new models. All they need is one good photo of almost every new model for a scrolling banner on their website.

The GM told me to figure out how long it typically takes me to do a shoot and get back to him with what I think is fair. They will be paying me hourly. I am by no means a professional, but I do know my way around a camera and processing software. It usually takes me around 1.5-3 hours to take photos, then another 2 hours or so to edit, so a typical car takes anywhere from 3-5 hours total.

I was thinking that $25 hr sounds reasonable, but I dont want to overcharge or undercharge.

Whats your opinion?

its how the pro's pay for the equipment and make a living. :) This isnt my area of expertise but I am slowly getting my brain around it. charge for your time and then charge for the rights which are limited to a year by year basis so if they want to use them again next year they either renew it or have you come in and do new shots. :) keeps the cash flow going. need a piece of equipment, bill it to them if its a large enough job. :D

if it means more money out of their pockets, I doubt they will be in favor of this. :)

Truth. They have all the stock photography they can get their hands on. But the reason I am of use to them is I can create quality photos of the cars with scenery that directly links the photo to a local environment

Guys a lil help

I've been given quite a good heads up on a job that could be very regular and lead to other jobs

from what i've gathered they have regular meetings etc where they require picture presentations of their properties etc but also they're looking for pictures of the presentation night itself too.

i havent got the ability to produce the printed pics immediately and the guy who told me has suggested nothing to say that is what they are looking for either.

as far as i can tell they want pics to show on the night and pics of the night

not knowing exactly how much pre-work is required is the hard bit

i'm planning to write an introductory letter offering my services etc so i'm leaving the pricing out for the time being however what price should i suggest when the issue is raised?
