My sister-in-law booked me to photograph her company’s holiday party next weekend. Initially, it was 0 for 3 hours. She gets full rights to use the images in corporate related internal stuff. Couple of things-
- they are setting up a formal photo area that I’ll be expected to man when people want their (senior prom-esque) photos. Backdrop and giant holiday props included
- i am now working 5 hours and haven’t heard the $ number go up.
- the employee’s will get to review the photos online and get copies of them from my sisterNlaw.
- there will be formal group shots of the corporate leaders / groups
My skillz? Good enough to get paid weekly for prints being sold, and have done weddings with great results. I’m not a hack, but I’m not paying bills with my photo $.
Bottom line- I don’t want to get abused on this deal. What to charge for the 5 hours? How to handle the licensing?
Note: I’ll be shooting with a 430EX Flash and one of several diffusors that earned my respect at the last wedding I shot.
