i've got a company that wants some architectural shots done. someone i know recommended me. problem is i don't know how to price anything.. can someone suggest some numbers to start with?? i've got the equipment and the talent but haven't done this before and would definitely like to get a foot in the door. this is not real estate work. it's a promotion for a electrical contracter..

think of how much you would be willing to pay

and double it

are they going to have sole ownership of the photos ?
that makes them more expensive

how long do you envision it taking?

i havent done contract work so i cant say a price

sorry

i tend to barter for services. if you had some electrical work that could be exchanged for some photos it might work out better for you and the client.

50 an hour plus travel if any and minimum of 50 photos for them to choose from. All thumbnails till they decide! If they prefer to pay per photo it is 20 dollars a photo minimum of 5 photos!
