I'm not a pro photographer (however, I do play one on TV) but was asked by a design client to shoot their property that they are selling. It's a several acre lot and I walked around and shot various points of interest, scope, architecural elements, etc. Just the outside.

Probably an hour and a half total done with the 10D. No prints. Keeping in mind this is a client, what shoud I think about price-wise?

I always like to charge on a per hour basis. As for the amount what do you feel your time was worth to you? What are others in the area (your competors) charging? Don't try to be the cheapest as that can give the wrong message to clients, also don't try and be the most expensive. Also remember to include any drive time and post processing efforts.

Yeah when I do a wedding I charge a flat fee (To show up) and then per hour, and then if they finally decide to make prints I charge them there too. You always wanna make sure if they are going to use your time, you charge them. So I guess I would have to agree with the post above me. Charge them per hour and then charge them for travel.
