    Question Pricing for Product Shoot

    I try to keep this short, so I'll put a background to explain how I got into this.

    Not very long ago, I have done a product shoot for a friend. I didn't charged him since it was my first time photographing a snooker table in a private housing. The duration of the shoot was about 20min. I had to execute the shoot right after the snooker table was assembled and soon after the place was cleaned up. I managed to submit 3 images and he was very impressed (me ). I didn't expect that I could pull off the shoot well enough and while he manage to impress his customers by showing my images and got selling the snooker tables.

    He asked me for a shoot again, this time he wants to pay me. I read before that there's no market rate basis on charging. How much should I quote him for such a shoot? Any rationalised thoughts that can help me to price such a shoot?

    Hi Alvin,

    Below is just as a guide!

    As a Product photographer will not point and shoot.

    Must know your friend need, e.g. output side, angle, date line, and other.

    Find out how much time need to shoot, one day or half day?

    Do you need setup like lighting stand, background, flower, notebook for live view and other?

    Ask yourself how much you feel if you get (e.g.)$XX per hour for your work?

    From there you can have your won quotation.


    Consultation $xxx per/day or half day

    Photos of facilities & amenities $xxx per/day or half day

    Remote live view setup on notebook $xxx per/day or half day

    Studio lighting setup $xxx per/day or half day

    Image basic touchup, cropping, colour adjustment $xxx


    You also take away any item that do not need.

    Wish you have happy shooting!

    Ah Tay, thanks for replying.

    After I mention him a quote, he say not going to do it this time round since the snooker table is the cheapo type.

    Anyway it could be next time already.
