i'm asking on behalf of a friend.

he's a freelance.
MUA wants him to shoot 2 models.
Headshots only for her portfolio.
he wants to know what's the market rate for a headshot makeover pic.

thanks for replies.

as I said, MUAs and photographers can always help each other...
doing portfolio mah, must help help a bit lar.

do a shoot for her, than trade for a few make up sessions.. next time he want to use make up service, can go and redeem lor, unless he think that the make up skill CMI..

that depend whether he want to shoot for her or not lor...

if want, minus all the cost add little profit on top..

if don't want, quote high high and refer the MUA to CS, lot of people willing to shoot for her free..

cost= hours of shoot, how many sets, studio rental, props, post production etc..

i got one friend shoot headshot for $10 a head shot... I also got one friend who charges $600 per head shot. So you can ask your friend to charge anything he feels comfortable with lah... :bsmilie:
