No More Freebies

Up till now I have done photo shoots free in order to get established BUT in the last month I have been let down by 3 models who have booked shoots and then sent an sms about an hour before the shoot cancelling, causing me major inconvenience and I have decided I am going to start charging a nominal fee on order to get real committment from the model of R300.00 per portfolio if shot during weekdays and R400.00 over weekends. Professional studio's charge up to R4500.00 for this. The fee is payable up front when the booking is made and is non refundable if the model cancels. For this you would get the photoshoot done with up to 4 outfit changes and a CD of the shoot with a minimum of 80 high quality shots(sometimes up to 300), delivered to you by me within a week of the shoot (sometimes I get this to you within 2 days). However, if I feel that you can lend something new to my portfolio that is not already there, I might be prepared to refund you the full fee after the shoot.

I agree with this Alex. I also have been doing pro stuff for free or very little money!
