Here's the situation: I've recently gotten a DSLR and I've been shooting with it and my friend (who's in a band) has asked me to take some shots of the band. I said yes and he said he would pay me for my troubles - I was delighted to even be considered in the first place. But I don't know how much to charge them. Should I charge a certain amout by hour? (how much?) Should I charge by how many photos they want? (how much?) Should I charge them a flat fee? (how much?) I know he said he would pay me but I will do it for free as this is my first assignment and I don't know how good I really am yet (and he is a friend too) but this question is more to do with the future and any future jobs from other bands in my area that see my work. I've got a Sony a200.
