Well, I don't know about others but this is what I do.
For event hire, freelance commercial work that I do, it's relatively straight forward.
1/2 day rate (4hrs) is $670.
Full Day (8hrs)
For portrait sessions it's a bit different.
Portrait / Family Sessions
I charge a $150 session fee.
I sell prints of the images only.
My prices are
Large prints are priced according to size.
An A2 print is $150 (Maximum image size is 575mm x 400mm, depending on the crop)
An A3 print is $80 (Maximum image size is 280mm x 400mm, depending on the crop)
An A4 print is $40 (Maximum image size is 280mm x 190mm, depending on the crop)
A 5"x 7" print is $25 (Maximum image size is 5" x 7", depending on the crop)
For each print I sell, I also include a social media sized copy of the image, this will be sized at 1920 x 1080. It will include my watermark. If the order for prints is over $600, I apply a large order discount which means I do not charge the session fee.
I also sell landscapes that I have done in my region. Depending on size, $400 up to a bit over a thousand for a few that I have sold now.
I have done a few small weddings for couples on their 2nd go around who have already had the big weddings. Big ones are not for me. Small, intimate and realtively basic weddings are for me. For those, I will charge a basic fee but my prices for images are as my portrait pricing. Going into it before the wedding the couples were happy only planning to buy a few prints. This suited me, however, once they came to my house to see the images, (they had already seen examples of my work and printing abilities) they ended up spending several thousand.
In my case, these are not everyday occurences. My prices and packages are very uncommon where I live. Not
releasing a CD with all of the images on was basically unheard of until I started doing my packages. One thing I have done to good effect was to have a good quality file printed under my control on my printers and have three others from the three local walmart equivalent stores. There are marked differences in the 4 prints side by side. I show the people this to show them why I want them to have printing done by me. Once they understand this, I generally have no problem. However, I have a large number of cheap photographers who do shoots and a cd for less than the prce of one of my A3 prints. So, sticker shock can be a problem overcoming. So far though, I do ok once
I can get them to see my examples, until then though...
Hope this helps??
