    Photo shoots - how to charge

    Hey, apoligies in advance if this seems like a stupid question.

    I'm doing a photo shoot of an aircraft for an airline. What's the best way to charge for that? Should I still be charging licensing fees for each photo they use, based on what they use it for? Or is there an unwritten rule that you should just charge for your time, along with a "creative fee" and let them use whichever photo they want, however they want.

    Thanks

    Jason

    Absolutely!

    You charge a creative fee to cover your shoot expenses, and to be paid for your time and talent.

    No! Don't do that.

    Photography is at its core an attempt to represent the reality of light in a media that canít faithfully reproduce it.

    Thanks Keith, all I needed to hear! Seems like a lot of money, which is fine for me, but it's another matter convincing the customer that it's ops normal.
