I operated for a weddings/couple studio for a couple years now so I am confident that my work is good since I'm usually asked to come do a job often. I flew the Phantom P3 Pro initially and now I've upgraded to the P4 Pro. I can do much better work with all the fancy features and the quality is so much better. I've gotten paid between 50-250$ for my work.
I did a few couple recordings before the wedding where we will take them to a nice location such as the beach or a town with a waterfall + watermill. I usually fly 2-3 batteries so I'm up in the air for about 1 hour and maybe 20 minutes worth of footage is usable. I get paid about 50-100$ for this.
The weddings paid me 200$ for one and 250$ for the latest one. It follows the same as before, 3 batteries with about 20-30 minutes of usable footage. Since a lot of the time I am hovering as we direct. The last wedding, I was there for about 6 hours. That comes out to about 40$ an hour.
Is this reasonable price to get paid? Am I overpaid or underpaid for my work?
