Re: Commercial Photography and Billing Insights and Questions

I "unofficially" left the biz when a large international agency called me and asked me to do a six location shoot for a big client. I bid it at three days with an additional day (at half rate) for processing.

They told me they wanted it shot in two. I conceeded that I could do it in two days if I started at 8:AM and worked till 6:PM, with no lunch. Then they said that they didn't want to pay for the processing day. My assistant agreed to do the processing for free if he could get the two days work. Basically, an across-the-board 30% discount.

It was at that point that I realized that I had to to find a better way to make money.
