United StatesHow much should I charge for a youth sports camp?
I have been asked to quote a price to shoot a youth sports camp this summer. The event has campers take football instructions from a pro athlete. This event takes place at a local football stadium and approximately 300 kids participate. Each participant has to to pay an entry fee and the event has 2 corporate sponsors. They require action shots plus one group photo each of 30 teams. The event lasts 4 hours. They want all photos uploaded to a Polaroid photobar website with no edits plus a cd of all images at the end of the event. They retain the rights to all images. The images will be used on their website.
Be careful about photo releases. If you are shooting children and posting to a public website, then some type of release could be needed. I assume the participants sign a release for the camp that includes a section on photos, but if not you might need your own release. I've heard about horror stories from fellow photogs on this front.
I would charge an hourly rate of $150Retain copyright but licence them the image rights for the use as described
