hi bros,i've just finished an event and already sent the photos to them. however client wans the raw files,and willing to pay extra for them,how much shd i charge them?
It really depend on your nature of the work. Also what is the purpose of the usage.
Maybe you can enlighten us?
For personal keepsake, my rate is rather cheap at $100 per image.
For commercial, I charge $500 per media per year per country per image.
Hmm, weird, wondering why do they want RAW files for a conference...
Different people have different interpretation of the word 'RAW'. Photographers (most) know what RAW files mean but non-photographers they may just meant uncropped/un-sized/unedited/unenhanced file. Or like what you said, a Tiff file.
Asking what Rashkae asked, what kind of clients?
WTB Manfrotto RC4 L Bracket
Nonetheless, if Client is not sure, ask if you could speak with the AD or Designer who's doing their work to determine exactly what they need. Hopefully, the designer (or Art Director) should know ...
most of the time clients and photographers using the SAME words to describe DIFFERENT things.
for this instant, the client might referring to unedited digital image files as RAW.
we, photographers call RAW format file eg NEF, CRW/CR2, as RAW.
perhaps TS client want to have the digital softcopy to be save as tiff, to obtain loss-less quality for further editing, not the raw format files.
NEF, CRW or DNG are just proprietry RAW formats which are most of the time straight from camera with minimal in-camera processing. To me RAW files are always un-edited until at the end of the workflow, which is either TIFF or JPEG. Provided you are using a non destructive photo editor
corect me if im wrong. And with regards to TS prob, i kinda agree with rashkae here.
give me a pen, and i'll give you my signature
hi sorry all, been bz, v hectic week, was at aff.
ok to answer some of the queries, i've confirmed with the client that they want something high res, so from my pov, i will provide hi-res tiff files. will courier to them on wed.
as for contract, i'm a freelancer so i don't give clients any contracts (don't flame pls, shd i start using 1 now?).
You are the kind of people who are killing the photography business.....dun even have a contract. Next time people will think, nah dun need to sign any agreement with the photographer, just agree to pay him $20 and then later can make him do whatever we want. hahahahahaha those stupid photographer
