    depends on alot of things:

    are you working alone?

    do they require photos were you'll need to purchase special equiptment you don't have

    will you be doing the post processing?

    will you be traveling?

    do they want prints or digital copies?

    will you be able to resell the photos after the gig?

    etc...

    soul has it right.

    even though you are amateur, shooting a portrait session and photographing the chicago red sox team photograph don't demand the same rates.

    what "stuff"

    I would charge different rates for a Sr. Portrait shoot vs a band promo shoot....
     

  6. better example would be Sr. Portrait vs Company CEO Portrait
