How Much Should You Charge For Your Photo Services?



For many shutterbugs, the dream of making money with photography doesn’t extend past being able to pay for new equipment. Photography might just be a hobby if you already have a fulfilling career.

But if you are looking to make a business out of being creative the first question that will cross your mind is “how much should I charge?” Knowing how to price your product (and from a tax perspective everything you do IS a product, not a service) does not come without consequence. Pricing yourself too low might gain you a ton of business but will also rob you of any free time.

Pricing yourself too high, especially early on, will decrease your workload but might also send you filing an application at Starbucks…again! Mark Wallace has tackled the issue of how much to charge in his latest video, and he gives a lot of great pointers. Lee and I are currently working on a detailed video series on wedding photography where we will outline our ideas on pricing so stay tuned for that as well. Leave any questions or experiences you have in the comments below. -FS.
