    My sister was talking to this older lady at work today (she works at macy's, the older lady in the langeruie department :naughty: )

    She is single, and looking for some nice pictures to put on dating websites. Any my sister kinda offered her my services.

    I don't think she wants anything printed. Just a CD of pictures.

    Im not really sure what to charge her, I figured we can just go out to one of the parks in her area, and get some nice shots (I work 9-5, so somewhere near sunset for some nice lighting, I also am going to order a flash (430ex))

    She doesn't make much money, and this is my first opportunity, So I figured Id just charge her $30 for the shoot + cd (no major PP work) and have her sign a model release incase I need to use them in the future for something. Also, Id make a few business cards and give them to her to hand out to her friends.

    I figure a good experiance to learn something + a good excuse to buy the flash ive wanted for a while now :mamoru:

    Or should I charge more? I kinda feel like $30 is a cheap price, but at the same time, this is my first opportunity (and could also open more doors, but I dont want those doors to be cheapskates)

    :dunno:

    $30 is wayyyyyy to cheap.

    Even for amateur photographer work you should be able to get $75-100 for the job. Maybe more.

    alright, awesome, I was originally thinking 50-60, but my sister goes "shes a nice lady and doesnt make much money"

    but I need to remember, shes not my friend, and I have to get compensated fully for my time.

    Ill just tell her $75

    I say get 75-100 so you can partly justify spending $200 on a 430ex :o Or get an SB-600 for $180

    I actually saw a spot on a TV news program where people on dating sites were doing things like this to be more 'professional and presentable' in pictures.

    The photographer that was doing this was charging $500-700 per session and they got 5-10 pics max!!! I'm sure someone amatuer could get $75-100 easy!
