What's a fair price?

    I'm an amateur photographer, but I've spent quite a bit of $ lately on
    better equipment (may not matter).

    I've been taking photos for the local Western Riding Club all year.
    Various members, having seen the images on the club website
    (http://cawri.com/photos.shtml), have finally talked me into selling my
    pics to them.

    Not knowing how much to charge, I looked at the website of the team that
    were contracted to take pics at the yearly show (that's like a state
    fair in the US, since they were contracted I wasn't allowed to take
    pics), they are charging $15/image for the first 5, and $10/image

    So, I decided to charge $10 per image for the first 10, $7 for 11-50,
    and $5 for images 51 and onward. These will be the full-sized images,
    edited if necessary, but converted to 300dpi .jpg (for printing) as most
    of them are .raw. They'll go on a CD.

    Is this a fair pricing structure? I was going to simply charge $10
    each, but my first customer asked for all of the pics of him and his
    spouse, which comes out to a massive $1200 at $10/ea, and $730 with the
    pricing structure I'm suggesting.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Suddenly, without warning, George Kerby exclaimed (11/16/2007 12:24 AM):
    For your information, I did *not* screw it up. Not that it matters,
    because I know the urls by heart, but I copy/paste it from the browser
    address, so I can't mistype it by accident.

  4. Worked fine for me too. Why so cranky, George?
