My friend is approached by his Malay colleague to shoot a wedding in May.. He is asking me how much he should quote for this shoot, he is actually thinking of $300 which I think is too much coz he's not experienced at all(pictures normal only) and no portfolio to speak of. As I do not have any experience in this field so hope u guys can help.. Thanks!
1) What is the normal rates for Malay weddings? My friend is thinking of $300..
2) Is the rates of Malay and Chinese weddings very different?
3) My friend is not experienced at all, he only shot one chinese wedding for his colleague before as backup photographer and do not have any portfolio to show.
4) Will Malay weddings ask to see the portfolio of the photographer?
