How Much Should Photographers Charge In 2016?

 

Many of our club members are amateur photographers but a few have taken the steps to go from amateur to professional or semi-professional, some club members have been asked to do a photo shoot. But how do you set a price?

Setting a price for a shoot can be daunting task. You don't want to over price and loose the job but you also don't want to cut yourself short. Do you need to do an hourly rate, fixed price or maybe a per image price.

Rosh Sillars is a veteran photographer with a photojournalism background specializing in people, food and interiors. Every year Rosh publishes an article that can help you set a price for your work.

In the article he talks about pricing, of course, but also about copyright, the state of the photography industry.
