    Look for RCs or CCs for a start. They are willing to pay S$120/- to S$300/- plus according to experience and the things you provided them (prints, CDs, album).

    For S$170/-, I charged RCs and CCs with 100 4R prints, designed DVD cover and label and a 4R album. Usually I got back S$120/- after minus off those prints...etc. I charged this S$170/- becos its a long term cooperation with them and I am not depending on freelance jobs for bread & butter. I am photographing full time elsewhere.

    As a whole, how much you charged really depends on how much you want to minus off for the prints and CDs...etc. Also dont forget that not only you can get contacts during these events shots, you can extend your contacts with other chairmen and members of other zones as well.

    Approach your RC chairman is the first steps to start. Also print your own namecards...

    yea..RC is a good place to start..recently, i started shooting for the cc near my place and i have 2 upcoming assignments with them..

    they usually pay me $120 for 1 shoot+1CD/DVD, without any developing..

    best thing about this is, if the regional newsletter got send their own pro photographer, you can exchange contact with him for assigments..also, some cc participants may approach you if they need a photographer for an event..

    S$170 for a job... Usually its 4 hours... Why not?

    If you think you can do jobs higher than my charges, congrads (by all means go ahead) and may more come in your way.

    Spoliting the maket, I reckon not becos its a long term cooperation with them. I guess different ppl shared different perspective but not need sacastic remarks.

    Now lets get back to the threadstarter's thread.

    For events like cc and rc, i used to charge $250 with 804r, abt 2 to 3hrs, if more hrs like 5hrs, will go to abt $400 to $500, but never at $170 4hrs.

    no wonder i lost those contacts after serving them for abt 2 years......., mine is west side and east sides.....

    good for the CCs and RCs.....

    This is why I stop shooting for CCs and RCs except when a "friend" ask me to shoot which I don't mind even if it's less that what's stated here
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
