    We have been asked to do some horse shows. The biggest question is if and how much we should charge the the place hosting the show. Please let me know what you think.

    I think you need to explain a great deal more about what you mean by "do some horse shows". First of all, are you in fact working for the organizers or the individual horse owners? What sort of services will you be providing? How many people (You, assistant, ??) How much time per horse? What equipment, eg lighting, etc? Do you need to buy/rent anything for this event.

    Giving pricing advice is very difficult since you are really the only one who knows what your overhead is.

    We shoot horses. We do not charge the show organizations. They love us for that and are VERY loyal. We charge the horse people for 'posed' shots but just post to our site for arena stuff. It is a 'win-win' deal.

    If you are any good, you'll sell plenty.
