We give a fixed price for shooting. X number of dollars for a half day, Y dollars for a full day. We have a four hour (half day) minimum, even if the actual shooting is only for a hour. This price covers setup, tear down and the actual shoot.

I can estimate, based on many years of experience, but I can’t come up accurately with a specific.There are just too many variables: audio adjustment, color correction and grading, titles, etc.
We also charge for review and changes.
Hope this helps.
