The Art of Pricing

Paul S. Bartholomew (https://www.paulsbartholomew.com) gives a wonderful interview for my chapter on “Taking Charge of What You Charge” in my 5th Edition of The Photographer’s Guide to Marketing and Self-promotion. Also, check out his new blog at http://bartholomewjournal.com/

“I’ll sometimes send a rough (not formal) estimate based on a fictitious project.  This way they can’t go crazy with expectations and the shot list.  It’s important to still at least try to get as much info as possible from the client such as potential usage and subject matter.  I’ll even give different variations of options because I find that people like to be given options to think about.  If it’s within their comfort zone, then we work out a shot list for a formal estimate.” For more of Paul’s interview,  https://www.amazon.com/dp/1621535479
