    I got approached by company that has asked me to shoot their publicity event. It runs 2 hours long in a public park. They are going to be using the photos on their website and in their press release. No post processing.

    How much should I ask for?:)

    dont let them cheap you out unless you're no good.

    What time of day is it? Also consider gas, and time in post.

    360 for 45 min? and you just put the pictures on CD and gave it to them?

    Thats expensive, I mean thats expensive for Ohio State. But then again just the other day I got paid $50 for 5 min shoot.

    If they are loaded and you just gonna give them the pics, charge like 500-600
