I am an amateur photographer who learns from magazine and try-outs at events. Recently at an event which i had been the "unofficial" photographer there was someone who liked the photos i took for him and asked me whether i can do some portrait shoot for him.
Having never done it for money or professionally, i was wondering the charges that you propose to your clients, for those who have done portrait shooting? And how would you negotiate the charges? To be precise this guy need some sorta cover photos, like the one u see on an actor portfolio etc. Being an amateur photographer i don't own a studio, so i am lost on how to even evaluate on the charges to be proposed.
Hope you experts & "sifu"s out there, pls pls advice & feel free to share your stories & experience when you just started out as photographers who charge for your work. I think this will benefit a lot other photographers who want to go into this path.
Thank you very much in advance!!
