What would you pay for an hour session and 10 digital images with a release? TOTALLY nervous to post this.. I understand that I have a LOT of work ahead of me and a lot more to learn. :)



Also... when I upload these pics to facebook, they get pretty blurry, so they're clear normally... just blurry after I posted. ha ha

Probably like $100-$200. I don't know a lot about photography but I think they're great!

I don't know what is acceptable price range... but you're very good! For an hour and 10 pictures, I'd say maybe $100?

Thank you. :) I'm only charging about 50 right now, and I'm nervous to even charge that!

I'd pay $100 more if I could afford it. You have real talent.

Girl, $50 an hour? You also have to think about the time you take to edit them and all that jazz! I'd definitely pay $100. If not more.

They're pretty awesome. Are you barely starting? My friend charged $10/hour when she first started. Now she has more clients & has been doing it for about six years and gets paid $100/hour professionally. Of course, whatever pictures she takes during that hour is what she gives the clients, plus a CD and disk drive. She's awesome.

no more than 50.00. you have a lot of work to do. Honestly though, you're better than the girl who did my son's pictures and she charges 200.00. Thankfully mine were a gift, because I wouldn't have paid a cent for hers.

We have been with 2 photographers and neither came with printed pics but they charged us around $175 for just an hour and your work is better than theirs

Thank you guys so much for the feedback. I guess I could stand to charge a little more. I'm still trying to grow and get better with each session. :lol:

It would be cool to see a comparison thread of you and two other photographers on here I think it would give all three of you a good idea on price ranges.



Cause I know I've seen all three of you post

Ha ha. Thanks! I got this idea from you... I basically just wanted to see where my skill level was at. I think I'm definitely growing, but I'm a little more comfortable asking for a bit more!
