DO NOT assume photographers just show up, shoot and send you photos. There is a lot of planning and time that goes into successful business photography sessions! Whether it’s for a holiday promotion, content fills or website images photographers take a lot of time to produce the best results.
TRUST ME when I say this, just because someone owns a camera doesn’t mean they know how to use it!
Unfortunately, in the photography world, unlike other industries, there are no legal regulations or licenses required for photographers to practice
Pricing How Much Should You Pay ?
Further down you will find my conclusion and how to overcome all the problems with pricing
FACT you can't determine quality by price alone.
If consumers can't automatically assume an expensive product is “better,” then how can they reach a conclusion about its quality? This is where gathering information comes in. You are not buying a lower quality product you are paying the right price for the service you require.
Charging for individual modules
An initial consultation £100
A setup fee £190
an hourly fee on top £50 to £150
a price per picture on top £20
the copyright to the photos £200
the use of the photos £12 to £60
editing the photos £25 to £80
way in which it is supplied, on disc format or printed format £240 - £1000
Doing it this way he does not need to know in advance what your requirements are, he merely charges you for what he does, you may end up with a bill off over £3000 pounds and that would be a bit of a surprise.
Some photographers give a fixed price. But he cannot give you a fixed price until he knows what you want.
The problem with this method is that they will have to know beforehand your exact requirements, how long do you want for your initial consultation, how long will it take into setup, how many pictures do you want taking, do you want him to edit the photos, do you want him to supply them in three different sizes one for Facebook one for the Internet and one for printing, what format do you need. When he has all the information he can give you a fixed price.
Caution! In the pricing you may see the words, Starting From, Does not include. Now you need to ask more questions, to get a fixed price.
