*FREE* Pricing your Photography

Probably one of the most difficult things to do on the business end of photography is to price yourself. How much is too much? How much is to little? Why shouldn't I charge $20 dollars for an 8x10? Why shouldn't I charge $2000 for an 8x10? These are all questions that will be asked and answered. There are specific formulas and calculations that you use to come up with the sweet spot number. It's a lot more than you think! If you charge too little for your work, you are not only hurting yourself, you are crippling the industry. "Why did I get a quote from another photographer for a quarter of what your charging me?" I get this question ALL THE TIME. It's not because i'm charging too much, it's because that other 'photographer' is not a professional and is undercutting the market because it's a hobby to him/her. Even hobbyists should charge what their worth. We will go over most of everything necessary.

The video will be available afterwards for purchase for $20.

This is an online webinar. I will be using Google Hangouts for business for the broadcast. 

***There will be opportunities to win prizes during the broadcast. I will be giving away 3 retouching action sets that I use religiously during editing and the grand prize will be a Connect X2 Eyefi Card 4GB+WiFi. You can only win one way! You must first like my Facebook page www.facebook.com/mikemcewenphoto and during the broadcast comment on things your learning or learned from the broadcast. I will choose a winner from the commenters.***

  • Mike M.

    We are going to do this online. It will not be this current date but it WILL be the next date. I need to get a few more things together. I was updating my studios pricing and am now ready to complete the work for this meetup.

    December 28, 2013

  • Bob P.

    Any updates on this meetup?

    December 28, 2013

  • Mike M.

    Jen and I are still trying to acquire a venue that will accommodate all the attendees and offer the options we need to present. And free... Did I mention free?

    Any update on the location of this meet up? Or is still going to be online?

  • marianne s.

    any opening yet?

    1 · October 1, 2013

  • Mike M.

    Ok we because of the size that this has grown to, an online solution is no longer the best option. Jen and I will scout out a physical location to hold the meetup that will accommodate all the people.

      Then if I can request a weekend or something. Not everyone in the group is close to Annapolis. During the week, it will take me an hour and a half, maybe more to get there.

      1 · October 1, 2013

    • Kathleen O.

      AWESOME! The Green Turtle in Annapolis has a great room in the back that they can close off to the general public. As far as I am aware, there isn't a fee for that room, but I think they would probably not want you to use it on a busy weekend night unless they are "catering an event" in there. That being said, the public libraries also have rooms and I believe they are free, but you have to get "on the books." Another location could be a church somewhere. They often will loan rooms to people. I can check with my church (it's just outside of Epping Forest) to see if that is something they would do. I have a key as well.

      October 1, 2013

  • Mike M.

    I changed the date to nov 1st but don't pay attention to that. We haven't nailed a date down yet so ignore that date for now.

    October 1, 2013

  • Stephen S.

    I had problems with the equipment meetup too.

    September 30, 2013

  • Karl B.

    Just wondering if this is still scheduled. I know there were issues with Google Hangout for the equipment meet up.

    1 · September 30, 2013

  • Mike M.

    There will be a link sent out about an hour before the start time of the meetup for the people to view it on youtube. For the people going to be in the hangout room itself there will also be a separate link to that as well.

    1 · August 30, 2013

  • Brenda M.

    The date is now conflicting with my photography club monthly meeting. I am not clear on how to see this on you tube. Can someone please post some instructions?

    August 29, 2013

  • Peggy J.

    This is an exciting topic. Can someone tell me how I will be able to view the YouTube as I'm on the waiting list since there are already 10 people. Is the video at the same time or after the workshop. Much appreciated! By the way, I'm also a professional harpist and after much experience, I have no problem for charging what I do for my services. Most don't even question them, but when ever someone brings up that someone is cheaper, I reply, "You get what you pay for."

    1 · August 18, 2013

  • Mike M.

    I know this is scheduled far out but I have to work around Ellie and when she decides to come. This is a VERY important topic however so don't miss it! It will open your eyes and increase you wallet. Guaranteed or you money back... This IS free isn't it? :)
