Compare your prices

I regularly get asked for advice on what you should charge as a photographer. There are so many different areas to cover but for event photographers in the UK this might help.

I commission photography fairly regularly and have just received prices for exhibition photography from a well established supplier. So this will give you a good idea of what you should charge to be competitive.

Colour print of exhibition stand 20x30cm = £40
High res image on CD = £40
Both print and CD = £48
Extra pics with different views of stand £36 each
Extra prints of the above 20x30cm £12
Medium format transparency or neg + 20x30cm print £49
Email a digital image £10 (res not specified)
PR photography of event (30 minutes) up to 30 pics on CD £128
Pr photography of event-15 mins) up to 15 pics on CD £78

Full payment ahead of the event with guaranteed refund if dissatisfied.

I plan to provide more commercially interesting information in the future and free help to photographers – if you want it. You know where to find me.

I'd also be interested to hear from photographers around the world to see how your prices compare. Any information will be treated in the strictest confidence and nothing published without your agreement. Anonymity guaranteed!

Cheers for now,
