    If you have never shot professionally before, I would recommend shooting for an absurdly low price and just using the work for your portfolio. I wouldn't charge more than $50 for a first gig which sounds pretty easy. Definitely need to know what equipment you're using and see some samples.

    It's a little different, but my friend made a website for a dentist and just got some free dental work. Wouldn't work with all kinds of doctors though :)

    I guess it would depend on what kind of shots they would want you to take.

    If they want you to just take a "passport" type of picture of them, for a small add in the Yellow Pages, then charge very little.

    But if they want you to take pictures of them working, and around the office, then charge a little more.

    It all depends what kind of pictures they are asking for, and what they're going to be using the pictures for.
