    I reckon he might think he is being smart by being 'cheap' and 'low balling' and 'makan-ing others' but thats the mindset of a small person with very short sights, his boss might think very differently or might actually feel 'siah sway-ed' by his behavior.

    This is a great story.

    what kind of picture quality (for example a shirt) should i be expecting if i pay for:

    a $5/shot
    a $15/shot

    what should i be expecting to pay if a model is involved?

    thanks!

    depends on the quantity of shoots...

    if u ask any pro to shoot 1 item 1 view, u pay me $30... i think they'll probably ask u to fly kite.

    in rough estimation, any job taken, should have a minimum amount, even for 1 shot taken.

    hi Del_CtrlnoAlt

    thanks for your answer. i think that is quite obvious. so all else constant (assuming whatever quantity that particular photographer is willing) what should I be expecting for each priced shot?

    thanks

    There is no hard and fast "price guide" on what photographers charge. In order to get a quote photographers will need to know :

    what is the product
    what is the concept or just edge out shot
    how many shots
    what is the usage
    any layout to follow

    from the above a rough quote may be possible.
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    you meant he should charge them the cost of getting a light tent, ambient light (i dunno how you gonna charge solar energy) and either a 100 or 50mm macro.

    huh. nice food menu usually pose one leh. like can just like tat shoot meh? i'm doubtful. i usually get the egg slices to line up cutely, cut the nice lime into 2 halfs and pose them to smile upright, all done in a light tent for nice lighting. i dunno if u can get same results using solar power.

    anyways its ur choice how much u wanna charge. if u think ur work is worth how much charge how much lor.

    i was in the same boat just last week. i have no idea, about how much should be charged for such prod photo...

    i asked $200 for 9 item of 3 shots each. then i find the item difficult to PP coz of its odd shapes so i asked for $300 fo 6 items, that makes $50/item of 3-4 shots each...

    good thing the client's boss liked my work so they gave me another project...

    but this 2nd project was many small things, and my client disagree to pay $50/item coz the total cost would shoot up to thousands of $s, so we nego-nego-nego. untill we came up with $12 on small items of 2 shots each (ill ask the client for $15 on complicated small item) & $30 for big items of 3 shots each...

    hth...

    btw, i did the 3rd project last night and more to come even overseas.

    you should charge as package and negotiate with teh client. first ask them what is their budget. Every customer has a budget be it wedding or a simple photoshoot like this products.
