I am putting together a quote for a beauty pageant shoot but don't really know where to being. I photography models, events and wedding but this is different since it is a 5 day span. So I am looking at being at the pageant for 5 days at about 8 hours per day. I will be doing some pageant and awards photos while it occurs on stage. I would also be going posed photos of the 400 - 500 young ladies in their evening wear, swimsuits, ect. They pageant is wanting me to do package prices for them which I can create on my own.
So basically should I discount my hourly rate due to the packages? I typically charge $75 per hour. Has anyone photographed a pageant before that has any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
