    Default How much do I charge for fashion editorial?

    Hello everybody,

    I have been asked to do an editorial fashion shooting for a shop that has stores in different places of the USA. The shooting would be only published online. I am in charge of searching the concept, location and model - with their opinion as well. Budget for the model is 600 dollars per day.

    I have checked the "how much do I charge..." in the forum but I could not find a case like mine. I have no experience in paid fashion shootings, but the quality of my work is in my opinion good - does not look amateur.

    How much do you think I should charge per day?

    Thanks for your help

    Just to clarify; They are paying one model $600 per day? Do you know how many days shooting they have budgeted for?

    Hi, yes 600 per day.

    I think in principle the shooting will only be one day.

    Web?????, if it for web only make sure it says that and no other publication rights are granted. I'd charge at least $1500.00 a day. Or rather, ask them what they have budgeted for photography and haggle from there.

    Yes it is only web, but I will make sure. I shoot film, should I add something for this fact or is 1500$ a standard price for such a work?

    thanks

    Do they know you shoot film?
    Extra work extra cost - they might be expecting a quick turnaround

    They asked me if I do at the same time they asked my budget, so I guess they will consider this point in my price

    Cool cool, will you be just shooting or doing ALL the post as well? Ie the full on photoshop tweaks etc or do they have a graphic designer who will take your photos and do cutouts/merges etc for the magazine/catelogue?

    Filmmmmm? what's that? You'd have to charge them 50% markup in film prices, processing, proofing and scanning per hour.
