    Red face D&D for corporate company

    Hi, sorry to ask a very noob question but I have totally no idea on how the rates go about. Therefore, I would like to know if $420 for a 5-hr D&D of photo-taking is considered reasonable? w/o prints and just a CD.. thanks! Cheers!

    I'd say most companies usually dun set aside big budget for photography of D&D and in fact, most did not engage any photographer at all.

    Its pretty common for them to get 3 quotes and compare the prices and the best thing, they do not even require a portfolio. Pricing is ultimate to them and they do not even care what cameras you are using as long as it is something that "looks" pro.

    There are still some that are very particular about photographers and are willing to spend big bucks on them. These companies are usually in the retail or fashion industry.

    If you quote too low, you suffer. If you quote too high, you lose the job. It depends on whether you think its enough for you. Its an open market out there.

    There's nothing to lose, if the mind of the prospective client was to hunt for the cheapest anyway. There is no loss until something has been inked.

    Partly true.

    Some would think is still worth to get you to shoot even though is expensive.

    Thanks guys for the advice! Yea..come to think about it, I guess it's individual value judgement. Whether it's doing it out of passion or money? Whether to use passion to make money? Or just doing out of passion and goodwill etc? Hehe anyhow, been looking around and yep I guess for that $420 seems like a goodie deal yea? hehe okie thanks again folks!
