Hi guys,

Just like to ask for an opinion about communicating one's pricing.
If one were to tell their clients the rate is $xxxx for up to 3 hours of photography service for this event and charges $xxx / subsequent hour.

Normally is it an industry known or reasonable assumption that there is no pro-rate of the additional charges for the subsequent hour if the even ends say in 3 1/2 hours?

I do also understand that having a contract and saying even more specifically that there is no pro-rate for the subsequent hour is better but i am just curious if the above is enough for the client to understand the subsequent hour is not pro-rated.:dunno:

Normally, with this... It is really up to the photographer.

It's your work and it's your charge, u can do what you think the best between winning the job and getting paid.

I don't mind charging for 30 mins interval if I want the assignment, but may charge per hour block if I prefer that.

Hope this clarify.

Ok i understand what you are trying to say but in an average usually is it a per hour block or pro rated per half hour block or etc? All else being equal.

There is no usual - it's up to the photog.

As Hart has mentioned It is up to the photographer

You can charge by the 15 minute block if you want .
There is no wrong or right here

Step up and make the call yourself. If it works for your clients you will know it, and gained some satisfaction that you made that decision.
If it doesn't work out or it plain isn't enforceable, tweak it and see if it works.

In the end the pricing policy you decide on should be something your clients and you are comfortable upholding.
