Recently, i've been getting quite a few photography jobs - events, sports, food adverts. The thing is, my clients as of now are my cousins. They pay me 50-70 bucks for a 4hr job. I realise this is a little low? But since i'm an untested photographer - i accept that it is a risk they are willing to take thus paying me this much. And also that they are my cousins i would accept whatever they give me.
So far there haven't been any complaints. but i read somewhere here i think "if there are no complaints, i'm charging to low". i'm starting to think this may be true.
Okay, so in total as of today, i've completed 7/9 jobs. 2 of them are still in my camera. This time round, someone calls me up. Not a relative/cousin. He asks how much i charge, i told him 70 bucks for 4hrs. Did i do something wrong here? Should i have brought my charges up to market prices because this guy is calling me "externally"? or was i right in telling him 70 bucks for 4hrs? I'm absolutely stumped as to how much i should charge.
I need some advice here guys. Please help me out.
PS: After producing a bunch of photos for my client, they own the pictures right? cos they paid for it. But are they allowed to re-produce the CD and sell it off to sub-clients? (i.e, parents whos kids were involved in the event)
