    think some have mentioned before, you can just find out how much your materials/transport/time/rentals cost and work that as a baseline?

Anyway i am suppose to print it on the spot, for about 100 people andi guess like you said i would need a assistant to help me out with the print. thank you for your idea once again. it was really good.

    Hi guys, thank you all for your replies, both negative and positive ones i sincerely appreciate all the replies and will consider what each and everyone had said. The main reason i am charging isbecause, i am suppose to to print the pictures for them on the spot, and this woud incurr cost on my part as i would need to buy printer inks, they want me to print about 100 pictures and i also need to provide frames for the 100 odd pictures and my cost is coming up close to $98.00 so that is why i have to charge to at least cover my cost. Profit is certanily not a main issue for me. But it would certainly be better if i can at least get some transportation allowanc because i will need to bring my laptop, printers and necessary equipments

    there are freelancers and freelancers, i think while clubsnap as a whole has no way to pass any judgement or to curtail the proliferation of slipshod freelancers.. at the very least, we should not turn a blind eye to it or say nothing about it.
    I've started a thread "It’s a totally different ball game to shoot for fund" on this Biz Forum about a month ago, boh business leh.
    I've met numerous freelancers in my business, some of the fees charged are “pityfool”. Most are try-try, only some would make it. Those whom charged right.

    Time to close this thread.

    Lesson learnt and re learnt -

    1. Being frank and helpful does not pay in this type of situation (very common in this forum ) as it is taken as "negative ones"

    2. What ppl want here is to hear good things like -

    "Wow, you got so good lobang - go for it passion, plus earn a few portfolio is good. Well done. Do not worry about $, more jobs will come from it" "Its not every day that we get to do something we like and yet still make money out of it. Go enjoy the moment!"

    3. "$35hrs an hour is good for newbies"

    etc, etc,
