    Check out the sticky in the PhotoBiz,
    there is no point copy a figure from someone else, just like copy the answers from a guy sit beside you during an exam, you don't know whether his answers are correct or not?
    and you suppose to come out the figure on your own, at lease you know even you won't make it or accepting the jobs/offers, but you didn't lose much money and wasting time.

    After you read that, ask yourself again,
    Are you ready for that?

    Are you a newbie in the business aspect or in photography? In case of the latter, would you hire yourself with that level if skills and knowledge for a day like wedding?

    That kind of rate is just for helping hand, no shooting needed.

    I started doing free lance work recently and pricing is always a challenge. I have a full-time job so this is a side income for me.

    When people approach me for assignment, i always ask myself - is the revenue worth the extra time and effort if i accept this assignment at XXX dollars and sacrificing my weekend? This is from a freelance photographer point of view and not from a Pro.

    This quoted price must be a price that you think it's well worth the quality of photo that you can produce. Therefore knowing your own strength and weakness is very very important. Only accept assignments that you are confident. Charge a good amount of fee and be kind to yourself if you know that such shoot is your forte.

    There is no fix price to begin with. A free-lance photographer charges from $12 to > $120 per hour (mostly for events). Moreover, some assignments are not exactly charged by hours. For example, food photography is charged by the number of shots and angles.

    At the end of the day, most importantly is i don't want to feel like **** and underpaid but instead getting a desirable income that is well-worth my time, and also delivering the quality of what the client wants.

    As mentioned above me, there are a lot of ways to judge the price range, per hour or simply per assignment (though mostly is per hour and rates are mentioned as above). Because there is no industry law on this, it can be as high as possible as long as the client / main photographer is willing to accept the prices.

    Also as said by OoStarDustoO, you have to see if it's worth your time and effort.

    Ditto. I have been noticing as well wilsonwongjw like to dig up very old threads to post in them.

    I don't find it rude. For other people, they will find what they need using the search function.

    Old threads/"necro-bumping"


    Do your part to keep the forums tidy. Posting in old threads, or "necrobumping" is generally discouraged in the technical issue subforums, since it can potentially create disjointed "zombie" information; outdated posts with data which is no longer relevant due to Arch's rolling nature, combined with more recent posts reflecting more current circumstance. Furthermore, technical support threads should remain succinct, and multiple pages are to be avoided if possible.
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Forum_etiquette



    necrobump
    verb: (internet) To revive a long dormant forum thread by adding a new post, thus bringing it to the top of the forum list. Often a tactic of trolls attempting to control a forum
    "That troll keeps necrobumping old threads so everyone will be too distracted to read the new important ones."
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...term=necrobump


    and btw user wilsonwongjw has been pump up a lot of old threads, especially in photography business related discussions with high view counts.
    plus his listed his newly set up website in his signature prominently.
    This is known to do some search engine optimization and increase the creditability of his website by using the popularity of ClubSNAP.



    so you tell me, who is the rude one here?
