Pricing for Corporate Headshots

13 years 1 month ago #56463 by qualityresults
Trying to figure out what pricing I should use.

I have 17 People that I have to do head shots (midchest up) (8x10 digital)

These are for a major corporation.

If I was doing prints it would be easy. The kicker is they only want digital.

So trying to establish a price frame is kind of the issue.

Do I charge on a price per picture, or package pricing. Approximately 2 hours of shooting and another hour or so of processing.

All the images are the same format only the subject changes.

Charge for you time and the disc, I would say £150.00 per hour minimum this should cover your expenses also.

:agree: make sure whatever you charger for CD is enough to cover the cost. Since they will have the picture on CD they can print as often as they wish.

Since it's just headshots, I wouldn't charge per the hour unless you were doing over a hundred headshots. I would charge by the head. $10-20 per person, your travel time (unless it's in studio then obviously they come to you); then throw 1 image of each person on the disc. The company I work for offers corporate headshots and for one person, they get 3 poses on a disc and I believe 1-8 x 10 or something similar...the price for that alone is around $70 with a copyright release. $150 is kind of cheap for that kind of work. But that is just my opinion...

150 pounds sterling equals about $250.00 US dollars. That's per hour. A fair price.

For this number of people, you are better off charging a half day rate. This is as you will need to travel, bring your kit and tear down. It's not worth charging by the hour or image.

I have a few people wanting me to do photos for them. I have no clue what to charge for my time. Does anyone have any idea's of what studio's typically charge for sessions and poses, outfit changes etc?? any help is appreciated.
