    I've just started to move away from deliver free services as a photographer and I think take this one offer

    "Definitive Dose is an online publication that covers Sports & Entertainment we are looking for photographer who can take pix for us. Majority of the shoots will be for interviews and video shoots."

    However, I have no idea what rates I should suggest for these type of shots. Can anyone give me a range?

    I'd charge $20,000-$30,000... But that's just me.

    I am just gonna go ahead and throw this out there. Your website is alittle disturbing. Having a category called secret places, ..... (with a few photo's that creep)
    Having a category called humans, .....

    As a psych major.. I'm just sayin.

    I'm not just trying to beat you up here, I'm just letting you know that it creeped me to some degree is all.

    I just looked at your web site and the "humans" category...are you sure you are ready to be charging people who expect you to be able to deliver interview photos? I'm just saying, you seem to have huge problems with technical issues, like exposure, and backlighting, and indoor photography...

    alot of it is blown out, noisy, bland,
    have you thought of doing things for donations?
    i did that after doing things for free. just do things for free and let the clients give you whatever they think is fair even if its a token fee.
    im not sure how that would work with a publication though

    +1 on that

    If you want your site to seem more professional, removing the label "Phone Camera" will really help. I'm not saying you can't post those pics, just do not label them as phone pics...
