United Statespricing for recipe photos?
I'm an experienced food shooter who has been included in an RFP from an agency outside of my local market. I was asked, by a San Francisco agency, to bid on a project consisting of 15 propped and styled recipe photos to be done over 3 days of shooting. The agency is providing the stylist, so I don't need to include stylist fees in my bid. The client is a food processing cooperative with annual sales of $295,000,000.
I was told these recipe photos would be used initially for the client's web site and in brochures, but the client wanted unlimited, exclusive licensing with no media or time limits.
I would be renting a studio in San Francisco that would cost me $450 per day.
Any suggestions on how to price this?
