How much to charge for small events?
Hey guys, so I was recently asked about my cost to film some events at a venue. So far they've asked me to do a 2 hour long event that will be pretty simple and straight forward. This could possibly be an on going thing, so I want to give a fair price. With that said I don't want to under sell myself and I don't really need too because I have a steady income already. I've been in the field for about 5 years off and on, but as of 2014 I've really been promoting myself as a hire out for an extra income. I shoot with GH3's and Canon L series lenses (all my own gear) and mostly do weddings but I'm recently doing other things as well.
No editing is involved in these events. They just need a one man shooter to cover the event that will be edited by someone else as a recap video/highlight. I do weddings mostly and have packages for that, but this is more corporate meetings which I have never done. What would some of you do? Hourly rates? Thanks in advance!
