Commercial Photography Rates


I have been photographing for a while, and a client has just asked me to do some product shots for her company. How much per hour should I charge? Would it be the same hourly rate I charge for the rest of my services or more? As well, are there any golden rules about commercial photography that I should know?

  Melissa,
The going rate for qualified pro photographers should be at a minimum of $100 an hour and average $125 to $150 an hour. Many, but not all photographers, will charge half their hourly rate for computer time, location scouting, casting calls, etc. Hope that helps.
