    ok understand. you charge according to what you think is best and able to cover your expenses. good luck and happy shooting.

    as pro image mentioned, it WILL take the whole day so be prepared for it.

    you might like to consider a cloth bg for easy transport, make sure that there is some support for the hand model, a whole day of hand posing is very taxing.

    Go there, unload everything, find the room can be use for shooting, set up your equipment, client bring you all the products, categorize them, ask the model get ready, arrange the set, do a test shot, approve the layout or composition, fine-tune the lighting….. 1 ˝ hours gone.

    Ok, can start shooting now, let say 5mins per shoot, 60 shots maybe about 5 hours.

    When done, pack up everything, leave the place, takes only 30mins.

    If i understand correctly there will be more than 30 pretty ladies. They are students and it is also a showcase of their own work (exam)? Comfy support is confirmed, they will surely have.

    you forgot that the hand model is alive and can/will move.
    so do another shot waste 1 more min for each shot.
    Tired already need a break add five mins
    Lunch add 45mins

    Whole day already.

    Last time Art Director told me this way, one day only can do three shots, morning 1 shot, then 2 hours lunch break, than 2nd shot, tea break, follow by 3rd shot, ok, done, call it a day.

    Now a day, client want 60 -70 shots a day, where got time to eat?
