I have been approached by an artist who specializes in ceramic artwork. She wants me to photograph her work for her new website. I do not know exactly how many pieces there are, could be between 15-35 items. All of them will be able to individually fit in my mobile DIY light tent. My question is, how do you propose one charges for something like this? Per hour or per item? At the end of the day, if I stay within our industry regulators recommended rates, the hourly rate for "advertising" comes in at R500 - R540 per hour. How many items should I realistically target to photograph per hour? If I can do a great job quickly, I shoot myself in the foot as I will earn less. I think I should target 4 items per hour - 7.5 minutes to photograph each piece, and another 7.5 min for post processing. That should work out to R125 per piece. Will one item per 15 minutes be frowned upon though? Oh, by the way, she also has 2 or 3 paintings... will those be charged at the same rate? What is the best way to approach a job like this? Thanks!
