We work with numerous wedding photographers in Toronto.
One of the photographer whom we work the most, pays us about $250 per client we refer him. He is very honest and always keen to his word. We work with him about 10 to 12 times a year.
Most other photographers I have worked with never pays us, and we never bother asking just to keep a good relationship going. I would usually say, if a photographer approaches you for refererral and mentions compenstation, then is proper to discuss the amount. If not, I wouldn't do it.
In terms of other photographeres who brings us business, there was only one time where we paid a referral fee. Which was only $100. We did just as a sign of good faith and to establish a continue business with them.
In my honest opinion, however, you don't want to build a business based on referrals. Is best to devise a marketing strategy to reach your intended audience.
Instead of other photographers, I would try to talk to some wedding planneres, they usually have a better clientele to refer to you.
