I somehow found myself with paying photography work last week. I was asked to take publicity shots at a local event for an hour for one of the companies that had arranged it. Thing I'm struggling with is how to write up an invoice for it. Basically the job spec was as follows:
As many images as I could take in an hour, they would then review proof images and select 10 - 15 images that they wanted the full size file.
As this is my first bit of photography work I'm new to the invoicing side of things, so if anyone can offer any pointers on how to set one up it would be greatly appreciated.

Some charge by the hour or a daily rate, others by image.
I did some business profile shots and just charged my hourly rate for the shoot and a bit of editing time. I just find that's easier - but does depend on the situation.... i.e. photos of this bloke are not going to be a big seller to anyone other than him
Google "invoice template" and you'll get something you can use - there's lots of word docs out there.
Publisher has invoice templates.
However as long as you put your name at the top, the client name, date and job description and amount payable on the page, don't worry how it looks too much. Charge them for an hours time and perhaps write that the amount is payable within 30 days a the bottom. Don't forget to also charge them for editing it it means anything more than supplying them with their chosen images.
