What to charge for photography assignment?

Recommended Posts

I'm a budding photographer considering going pro. Recently my dad commissioned me to find a certain scene and photograph it. He asked what I charge, and I didn't know what to tell him. I've thought about what to charge for portrait sessions, but never considered what to charge for a commissioned assignment. Any thoughts? He's talking about wanting 1-2 photos, for non-commercial use, on subjects that could be found locally.

find out how much a pro would charge and then charge 1/2 of that because

1. You are not yet a pro and…

2. It's your dad.

 

or don't charge anything b/c he's your dad and chalk it up to experience.

Lol. Yeah dads should get special priveleges shouldn't they? I probably won't charge him - chalk it up to free advertising. It just made me wonder though, what does one charge for an assignment? A stock photo would just pay a few cents but a portrait shoot would pay several hundred dollars. Where does an assignment fall in that continum?
