    I need to pick some brains here. Someone is interested in my taking senior portraits of their son...creative/non-traditional pictures mostly at the skate park. I really don't know what to charge because I have never done senior portraits. I know what I charge for a wedding and I know what I charge for portrait sessions but was just looking for ideas as to how to start with senior pricing...especially if it's location shooting.

    Thanks for the help!

    Id say a bit more then an hour, at least for this case because if hes skating it might take some time to get good shots of him and you may find an hour might not cut it.
