I'm curious to find out how much photographers are charging to shoot an event on New Years Eve. It's the prime party night of the year and photographers are in hot demand as everyone wants to have that special moment captured. I have received 3 proposals to shoot for various parties so far and each one is only wiling to pay a certain amount. I just heard yesterday that one photographer is charging $3,500 for 5 hours. I'm wondering if this person is pricing themselves way out of the market or is this the normal rate for NYE?
Anybody else shooting on that night and if so, what would you consider to be a normal charge ? Im charging double than I normally would for an event that lasts that same amount of hours but it's only because of the event itself. Interesting to hear from others. Thanks.
