    I have a friend that is opening her own studio... to help make some $$ she will rent out her studio when not in use.

    I asked her how much she would charge me and she asked how much it was worth to me.... so basically she has no idea what the price is going to be .... and I have no idea of the going rate.

    I read a few threads and see prices in the $25-$50 hour range and some crazy expensive ones also.

    She doesnt have a very big studio.... no seamless paper.... just a few muslins and a couble ab-800 lights with softboxes...a few props (couches and stuff)

    So I am wondering what I should offer her or expect to pay for her studio time.

    Thanks in advance

    Offer her $20 an hour. Obviously, she can't charge the kind of rates they get in NYC.

    Someone has to start the negotiation. How high are the ceilings?

    That's no help at all without what they get for $50 an hour.

    $50 an hour seems about right to me. If you think about everything that goes into scheduling, the electricity, having the studio set up, etc $20 seems too low. If you can get $20 though, the more power to you.

    you're right. Sorry. For $50 we provide backdrops, Lights, modifiers, and music. Outside of that, we're there, but not doing anything with the shoot. If they want help with light setup, posing, etc... We charge an additional $30.
