    I'm pretty new to shooting for money. People in my town charge crazy high amounts so I don't want to base it off my area. I've definitely got some confident issues when it comes to my work. I always think I'm not good enough and get super nervous and shaky. I'm definitely getting better the more I do it. I know I don't suck but always right before the nerves get to me. A lot of this get in the way for pricing. So far I tell people "Ill give you the photos and you just send over what ever you want!" So far with this strategy I have gotten anywhere from $25-$150.

    I am not a professional, so I was waiting for someone else to reply.

    If you are a good photographer, then you should be charging for your work. Don't leave it up to your customers to decide how much to pay.

    Breathe deeply, and make good photographs.

    Good luck!

    Material + Labor + Overhead + Profit = Price.
