    Well, you paid for the camera. You'll be operating it, you're doing the editing. Printing is cheap enough.

    It also depends on how good a friend she is. Personally I'd start at about $50 an hour and work from there, but that's just an off the cuff number.

    50d

    430 ex flash

    and the ones on my sig

    Well, if you're doing professional level work, and you can get done in an hour or so, I'd say that's just about right.

    If you have to rent equipment...make sure that you cover that cost PLUS your time.
