I really hate to do this on my first post. But I'm a little confused. My name is Michael Knowlton and I live in the Atlanta area, for years I've taken photos, but never thought about turning it into a business until a little while ago. I am completely confident in my work, and I don't want to overcharge/undercharge. I really enjoy high-fashion/portrait photography. Ultimately, I would like to work with high-end clients, shooting for magazines, or marketing material, and do campaigns with fashion designers. However, I understand it takes time to get to that point. I'm not really keen on doing portrait sessions with normal people, or weddings, or engagement shoots. But I understand its going to happen. I am incredibly grateful for any help/guidance I can receive. Where I get confused is what to charge for, and how much to charge. For example. For a portrait session this is how I think it should go. But I want you guys to tell me what is wrong. Sitting fee ($X/hr, with a minimum of X hours) Then the client proofs the images and orders prints Then, if the client should want a high-res digital file for images. Should I sell the CD of the proofs he or she chose, and offer a per image price if they don't want the whole CD? I also would like to get guidance on how much. I don't want to limit my clientele by setting my prices so high, and I don't want to undervalue myself. I've attached a few of my images from a couple photoshoots this weekend to provide references for the level of images I produce. And to sum it all up, I'm just looking for an overview of the different steps of the experience, and what to charge. Thanks again everyone. I know its a pain to get these sort of questions all the time.
