If a skilled craftsman is $30 per hour in your area, then
a skilled craft with equipment/studio space would be that ratio above a

to maintain plus there is built in time for post processing etc
that is hard to charge per hour but much be in a 'sitting fee'
as one example.

I'm not sure I get your analogy. Are you suggesting that a self-employed carpenter or mechanic doesn't have overhead of insurance, rent, equipment etc.? (OK, maybe a carpenter doesn't have rent, but still...) But I will give you that a very talented photographer is a different breed than a skilled mechanic or carpenter.
