I am a beginner who owns a 7D DSLR that I will be shooting with. I am about to be hired for a grass roots video for a company in the area that does not have a large budget. They enjoyed a video that I had finished at a PR firm in my city during one of my school internships. I am excited to do it! But it will take quite a bit longer than my first one.
That all being said: I was under the impression they were unable to pay me. So when they asked how much I charge I was at a loss. So my question is what should I charge? Should I even take it? Mind you, I have a strong passion for video and just graduated with a Comm Bachelors degree. But I have a little one at home that I would need to get childcare for.
