    Default how much to charge for 2 head shots

    i'm asking on behalf of a friend.

    he's a freelance.
    MUA wants him to shoot 2 models.
    Headshots only for her portfolio.
    he wants to know what's the market rate for a headshot makeover pic.

    thanks for replies.

    that depend whether he want to shoot for her or not lor...

    if want, minus all the cost add little profit on top..

    if don't want, quote high high and refer the MUA to CS, lot of people willing to shoot for her free..

    cost= hours of shoot, how many sets, studio rental, props, post production etc..
