I'm in the midst of creating my own small photography business. I've done photoshoots for friends and family, free of charge because I was getting practice. I don't want to overcharge but I don't want to miss out on money. I have backdrops and a few props. How much should I charge for a photoshoot?

  • At the very least, you're going to have to give some sort of indication of where the the world you're based; there's going to be a big difference being doing this is Norway and in the Central African Republic. – Philip Kendall Mar 14 '16 at 19:27

    Slightly less than the competition. – Count Iblis Mar 14 '16 at 19:49
  • Or twice the competition's price and market it as exclusively available to only the well heeled. – Michael C Mar 14 '16 at 21:07
