Product Photography

I've been approached to do some product photography for a local shop. They've got about 25-30 items that they need photographed for their website. They're just wanting a simple shot of each against a plain white background.

I've never done any product photography before so I'm just looking to see what the going rate is so I don't sell myself too short.

Anyone able to advise?

So, based on that link, you would be charging 7.99 per photograph for the quantity you have been asked to produce. I don't think your client could complain at that and at, say, 200 for a few hours work, you would be getting a decent return.

Good luck with the white background. It took me forever to get that right for the product shots that I do.

The link Ray gave is fine if the products are going to be delivered to your studio where you already have things set up for standard packshots.

However if you are going to their premises and having to set up etc. then you should be pricing by the time (half day/day rate) rather than the amount of items or you end up losing out especially
when only doing a handful of shots.
