    here is SAFRA`s.


    for the price they are offering, quite the number of facilities? Me on the other hand maybe a handful at any one time and usually onsite.

    what would be a good business model?

    i'm a bit skeptical of safra, because i have interacted with the people there, including their advisors/ honourary members etc. lets say my experience was not too pleasant.

    think about... what kind of aim you are doing? is it for profit or giving back to community. if community, close an eye and offer enough to cover your cost.

    if profit... well... discuss with the client and see how...

    Learning how to shoot professional work or just for hobby?

    Just for hobby then cheaper.

    Otherwise price it high.

    I do offer one to one lesson and the charge is $500 for a 4 hour session. I will teach people what they want to know both in theory and hands on.

    Generally, they are my clients who uses my service before and wanted to learn more about photography.

    I hope that gives you a number to work with.

    I charge at a rate that I don't get too many of it as I don't always have the time. I teach for fun too... So the price is the balance of the 2.
