Question about price

Hi all,

I'm not new in business but I work in multimedia and I also do a lot of retouch in these projects often web based; I'm quite a pro with years of experience but I never did a pure photoretouch work for a client, it was always a mix of thinks to do...now a client asked me to remove from 20 photos that horrible noise (dark shots with hi iso and not very good quality camera = terrific noise on photos).

I worked on a single shot and it takes me about 2 hours to denoise perfectly that shot like the client wants it. Can u suggest the right price for things like this?

Which is a medium price/hour in retouching?
Someone said me about 30 euros/hour.

Can this be correct?

Please any comment is useful.

Re: Question about price

Depends where you are working Isedo. Here in London I would say the average hourly rate is around £35 an hour.

Re: Question about price

Depends on the type of work you are doing. If you are only de-noising, it can fairly be lower than £35 an hour. If your doing high end highly finished work, it should be a lot higher. Of course right now £35 is no longer what it was relative to the rest of the world. (I suggest if its taking you two hours to clean noise, you MAY be using the wrong approach)

Re: Question about price

You're right Mark, if a retoucher is capable of carrying out high end advertising and beauty retouching then one can demand anything up to £300 an hour (with the right contacts of course!!). But I was just going by the average rate my company would be willing to pay someone to cover me when I'm on holiday or sick. Especially in times like this.

Re: Question about price

In general, I agree with mac monkey.

At the same time, pricing depends on so many things and I always negotiate for each job after assessing the raw files.
