I have JUST started taking my photography to a business level instead of a hobby level. I was approached by a woman at my son's preschool and she would like me to photograph her pottery, jewlery, and other art that she creates for advertising purposes, her website, etc. I am only planning on doing a nominal fee for her as this will be great experience for me and something to add to a "jobs list" to get me started. She's just starting her business, so I don't want to charge her much, as she could give me great word of mouth referrals and kind of a "you scratch my back, I scratch yours" - plus she has kids so maybe future work down the line doing kid portraits for her. Anyways, long story short, how do I go about setting up a basic fee structure? Do I charge for shoot time? Or just say a certain amount for # of pictures? What did some of you do when you first started out? I'd like to know for this particular job and as a starting point for future business. Do you suggest a basic "release form" from her to use her artwork as portfolio material? Thank you for any and all advice you can send my way!
