Hello, this is my first time posting here.

Anyway, someone I know has recently asked me to produce a digital photo slideshow for her daughter's graduation party. The idea is that I would take a number of (digital) photos, and then set up a slideshow that would be projected onto a wall during the party.

I've been taking pictures for a few years now (conventional and digital), but never professionally, so I have no idea of what to charge for something like this. I figure I might end up using somewhere between 100-150 pictures. Does anyone have any ideas on how much something like this should cost?

Any information/advice would be very helpful. thanks!
Figure out a set price for your time, most photogs are 100-150 / hr. Then figure out how long it will take you to do it, and your other costs involved (Cd, label, whatever). I would say... for me to do it... maybe $200 if you aren't taking any pics, just compiling the ones she has. But I work
