I have been asked to quote on a job, photograph the outside of a building for use in company brochure, annual reports and press ads.
They are looking for a complete buy out.
Any ideas how much to quote?
Seems to be urgent.
Any help thanks.

Tell them to employ a proffesional
Would you like the job, how about I pass on the info to you...
I have to ask - what happened to this Mark after his acerbic comment
is he a hit and run ie set up a profile make a comment then disable everything? ie a coward
has he been struck off?
sorry to be off subject but intrigued
No he has posted similar comments in the past.
No, he hasn't been struck off or anything like that. Sorry, there's no drama here.
ePz is a bit addictive especially with so many photographers on it so it's natural Mark doesn't really want to leave. In fact Mark is one of our many regulars and visits the site every day.
He could be outside that hotel right now.....
Good for Mark.
Now does anyone have any comments on my issue, as Mark's weren't too helpful.
By complete buy out I assume you mean they want full copyright? If so then charge an hourly rate for your time, equipment and expertise. That could be as much as £1500 per day.
I'd say as much as you can haggle. Past answers to the same question of how much to charge vary, between £10-500. Depends on how big the company is and scaring them off by quoting too much. How badly you need the job/money...... could it further your career, is it just a one off etc.
I'm no help I know
In past enquiries of this nature people have been referred to one of the industry books/websites.
Maybe a trawl of the freelance section of this forum would be the quickest way to an answer.
They own the building I guess and you'll be shooting on their land I guess, so copyright doesn't even enter into it - in fact it gets mentioned so many times on EPZ that it muddies the waters - take the shots, charge for your time and walk away.
Daily Rate fine, if I can work that out...
Yes their building but no not there land ~ on a public road.
Thanks for all the replies.
