    Rates vary a lot. Are you hiring or want to become one?

    Well, if you just want mere documentation and ok pics (may even be bad pics), $30-40/hr can get you one. If you want substance, it starts from $100/hr. Negotiable if you employ for say a full day.

    no lah. My company hired an events company for our October D & D. package includes a photographer whom they say cost them $900 to hire?? Timing should be from 7pm to 12midnight. We already signed the contract, but I'm just wondering abt the cost... We are holding another D & D (group) in feb so wondering if I should recommend to the committee to hire a freelance one or take a package with an events company again. Then we also have photoshoots for our directors and picture shootings for the Annual Reports. Think I heard from my colleague that it cost abt $2K to hire the photographer who's either from the PR company we hired or recommended by them. So I'm just wondering whether these are the correct market rates.
