usually they will find the most cheapest, lowest price photographers to do the jobs for maximize their profit.
most experienced photographers will stay far far away from them, unless the photographers know the company very well and very prompt in payment.

the event company need to make a living too...it all comes down to profit margin for them and client budget. In most cases they will go for the cheapest.

Company events are good catch, if this is your first time dealing with this company tell them that your usual rate is 150$ but you’ll do it for 50$/hour as long as they’ll call you everytime when there’s such function and make you as they’re regular photographer.

I remember my Dad did this when he was starting his photography business in Manila and so far it went well and he got lucky because of this approach. I hope this works for you too and good luck.

there's one guy who charge $400 per hr, and he produces another standards, just shoot and charge accordingly to your skills.

Charges depend on whether you are a company, individual or freelance photographer. I am doin photography for 20 yrs. from my experience companies charge $3,000 or so for D&D, if you are freelance photogpaher. can negotiate with organiser. can be in the range of $1,000 to $1,500. good enough. provided u are using digital.
