What would you pay for an hour session and 10 digital images with a release? TOTALLY nervous to post this.. I understand that I have a LOT of work ahead of me and a lot more to learn. :)



Also... when I upload these pics to facebook, they get pretty blurry, so they're clear normally... just blurry after I posted. ha ha

Probably like $100-$200. I don't know a lot about photography but I think they're great!

I don't know what is acceptable price range... but you're very good! For an hour and 10 pictures, I'd say maybe $100?

Thank you. :) I'm only charging about 50 right now, and I'm nervous to even charge that!

I'd pay $100 more if I could afford it. You have real talent.

Girl, $50 an hour? You also have to think about the time you take to edit them and all that jazz! I'd definitely pay $100. If not more.

They're pretty awesome. Are you barely starting? My friend charged $10/hour when she first started. Now she has more clients & has been doing it for about six years and gets paid $100/hour professionally. Of course, whatever pictures she takes during that hour is what she gives the clients, plus a CD and disk drive. She's awesome.

no more than 50.00. you have a lot of work to do. Honestly though, you're better than the girl who did my son's pictures and she charges 200.00. Thankfully mine were a gift, because I wouldn't have paid a cent for hers.

Thank you guys so much for the feedback. I guess I could stand to charge a little more. I'm still trying to grow and get better with each session. :lol:

It would be cool to see a comparison thread of you and two other photographers on here I think it would give all three of you a good idea on price ranges.



Cause I know I've seen all three of you post
Legendary Bonnie Beave
And

Ha ha. Thanks! I got this idea from you... I basically just wanted to see where my skill level was at. I think I'm definitely growing, but I'm a little more comfortable asking for a bit more!

The good thing? You never stop learning photography. haha.
And you are definitely growing. Brandi told me that charge what you think you're worth and that if you don't take yourself seriously, no one else will. :D♥
