Pricing your Self

I have been asked lately from people starting to take on portrait photography as a paid services. I have been been a paid photographer since 2006. Many people are un clear how to price them selves as photographer.

 

First are you doing it as a full time job or doing it part or just on your free time.

Full time photographer:

you need to figure out are you going to work from home or run out of a office space/studio space.  Once that is figured out how, much is your rent, utilities, taxes, health care, advertising, website fees, and the list keeps going on and on for all the expense.

Now how much do you want want to make to pay your personal bills, walk around money, savings and so on. I figured out your self would $100/hr and your business then needs to make some money. Once you figure out all your expensis it’s usually works out to be $200-$250/hr or shoot for around $1500 a week.

 

Part time:

If you have a full time job and looking to shoot some photos to make some money on the side. Take your regulars hourly wage and double or triple it depending on how good of a photographer you are. Then figure out what you can write off in your house register your business so you can benefit from have your own part time business and figure out your city’s bruise sis licenses.  Don’t be cheap you are still doing people a professional service so do a professional job at a professional rate.

 

I no longer shoot photos full time. Have my Rates changed yes, are they under cutting studios? No. My new clients are now just hiring me and my gear. I don’t have a studio, I have slimed my gear down, and all my expense are less now due to I don’t do this full time. I still have taxes to pay on the money I make, I still have insurance and I still have to keep the gear I own in working order to do the job that I am hired to do. My Hourly rate is anywhere from $25/hr to $100/hr depending on the job and what I am all doing.

 

Don’t sell your self short. Get paid for a service you are providing. If the person companies about your rate as them to do their job for a fraction of the price. We all need to get paid to live in this world So get paid what your worth.
