What's a fair price for pictures?

I typically shoot QTVR 360 virtual tours and have a price list in place for my customers. Today however, one of my clients asked me to take about a dozen still's of a couple of different properties and I'm not really sure what I should charge him. I normally charge $99 for 4 - 360's and $25 for each additional node. I was thinking I'd charge him $25 per still photo, and it would probably fly, but then again that might be a little pricey for a digital image...

Thoughts?

You're not printing them for him, right? Just the digital image for his listing?

Yes. He's running the listing in the Robb Report.

I don't know much about the rates for these kinds of pictures, but $15-$25 sounds reasonable. I'm trying to relate it to family photos taken by a photographer...not that they're really related. Sorry I can't help more.

I would say that you should be able to judge a fair price for your pictures. Everyone is different, and it also depends what type of area you are in. It also depends if you are popular, well known, etc. If you are good (and it looks like it) you should be able to get $25 a picture. But in light of your pricing of a single pano for $25 (which takes considerably more work to do than taking a single picture) I would think that $25 is a little high. Either drop the single picture price, or raise the pano pricing.
