    Default Reasonable rate for board of directors ?

    hi..

    I'm asked to shoot portraits for a group of directors. Still new to shooting corporate stuffs. Would like to know how much is considered reasonable if you were to charge for a one day photography service excluding printing. Total no. of shots are not known yet. basically will fill up one day.

    Will involve basic post process, levels, colours only.

    But seriously, go and take a look at the thread about rates. What will be your setup? If shoot passport type of photos, then I don't think they have high budget. But if use for their company's publications then sharpen your knife.

    And I don't think your post process will be that easy.

    Please explain that you have to do post editing! Some people don't know all this and think it is just shoot and print.....:-)

    Rate to charge = Cost (Direct and Indirect Expenses incurred + Depreciation cost of equipment) + Profit you want to earn

    The profit you want to earn depends on yourself, really... You definitely have to add a profit component or you would be doing this job at a loss.

    Market rate can vary as each has their own cost level and profit target. Set yours based on your own.

    Are u talented? If yes, you should peg your rate to that of the top 5 earners in the industry.
