Hello there! I've been reading a lot of posts here on how to charge for video work but I still haven't figured out what my rates are. I am not sure if I should charge per hour, per project, half a day rate or a whole day rate. I am working for a company for almost a year now and I do their in-house stuff like ads, videos, highlights, commercials, motion graphics etc.. Now my question again is, how much should I charge potential clients if I want to do freelancing?
I a DSLR user and I have a Canon t2i, a tripod, glidetrack, Steadicam, Zoom H4n, Canon 24-70 L, 50mm, 55-250 but I don't have any lighting gear yet. I live in Reno, Nevada and I can say that there's not a lot of competition here regarding this kind of business.
Any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks and have a good day!
