Pricing for City website photos

1 month 2 weeks ago #653215 by Angie-Pena-Smith
I normally do portrait sessions by the hour and sports photos are prints only. But a small city reached out to me for some photos for their website and I have no idea how to quote them.

They want some head shots, photos of city workers working, photos of local events, and landscape photos. All to be used on their new website. Most of the photos would be a few minutes here and there and I'm completely stumped on how to price this. Any suggestions to help me figure this out?

You need to know what your deliverables are (how many images, etc), how long the shoot will take (including travel?), and finally usage by the client.

If you can charge enough to justify the expense, perhaps look at fotoQuote software.

When I did commercial photography I billed for time and expenses.  Most commerlcial shooters do.  Then there is no need to worry about the images at all.  Just go through them, dispose of the bad ones and turn them over with your bill.  This isn't retail photography.
