I got my first photography gig, but how much should I charge?
A family member recently got me my first opportunity to take photos for the company(which helps house disabled elderly people) she works for, but now I'm wondering what to charge.

I am going to be taking pictures of the Highmark Walk For A Healthier Community located in Pittsburgh, PA, and also photos of the nurses that go on house calls to the customers they help house.

That is a good question, and you have several answers to choose from. Bottom line, it will be up to you. Personally, I'd go for a flat rate of $50, donate half back and be sure that you get photo credit for all prints used - no matter what... More
