    off model fashion photography

    Good Morning

    I had an opportunity to do some off model fashion shots. I have not done this before and not really sure what to charge. I don't want to be too cheap but I also do want to be too high. Can I am looking for a ball park idea what to charge. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have done numerous model portfolios and the lenses (for 35mm/FX format) I use the most are an 85mm f/1.4, 105 mm f/1.8 and 180mm f/2.8. I prefer fast primes since limited depth of field to isolate the model without losing a sense of "place" is essential to good fashion photography.

    To get started, offer TFP
    or TFCD
    (Time for Prints or CD). Once you have gotten established, try charging $40-50 an hour with a 2 hour minimum. When I shoot an agency represented model, I choose a flat fee of $450 for one model or $800 for two and guarantee at least 4 hours of shooting.

    Since the original post is over a year old with no response from poster, I think you may be beating a dead horse.
