Re: Charge Rates for Product Photography

I agree.  This is at the heart of the matter.  It often seems like I am educating at the same time I am giving a quote which is usually not a good thing.

Asking the budget up front and telling them what they could get would be so much better.  I wonder if there is a way to go about this and actually use it?  So many people I come into contact with have no idea about costs etc...  They just want nice images.  And today that is often at a lower price than you want to work for.

So often at the end of projects people have an ah ha moment when they get to see how things are really done (photo & video).  They then soften up and know why things cost what they do.  Before that moment they are going off of their own experiences which are not even related.
