what going rates are for photography. Pretty much I do this on the side, went to school and all so its not just hobby like but at the moment i cant make a full living out of it. I have someone who has asked me to shoot her daughters 15th (quinceara). I have done family portraits for her before. What is the going rate for one of these and what is included? I dont want to charge as much for obvious reasons (im not a full fledge pro) and she is friends. However id still liek to charge a resonable amount hat i wont feel taken advantage of. Basically as far as wants she wants coverage of the event, a pre event photoshoot, a 16x20 of that day at the event. Those are basics and we also talked about one of the books (the binded ones that you can publish). Can anyone help me out. I have looked online and all ive seen is very scattered and VERY expensive(wellnto all but most). All ranges from $600(very very basic) to $2500. I asked a girl I work with and she called some family member who says she paid around $2500. I cant fathom charging that much. help!!!
