What do you Charge?

Hey, I was just woundering what you all charge for an average restoration of a photo? You know color correction minor scaraches and spots. Just would like to know if I'm charging to much or not.

thanks for any inputs
Bruce

In the past, when I did this kind of thing more often and for money, I never asked for more than $75. I only did things that were mildly challenging. You know, things that wouldn't take more than an hour or so.

Now a days I ask for lunch and some conversation.
My life has changed a lot and that's all I really want.
Kids will do that to you.

Thanks for the reply Stroker, that is the price rang that I have been charging so I feel that I'm in the right price rang.

thanks for the reply

Have you seen this site?

It seems rather cheap. Somehow they got rated by PC Magazine which I think is a smart idea.

I start from £15 for minor damage [10%].... and then it goes up for every 5% damage more - £5 more

We charge between $65 and $85 (USD) per hour but we have a TON of overhead expenses. If they place a decent size print order we give them one free hour but still charge a $65 setup fee so I guess it's not really a free hour. oh well.

Rule of thumb: $60 per hour basically sums it all up for me. Then, based on the particularities or miscellaneous work that may go into the task, it could go up or down a percentage.

Things to consider are 1-off versus bulk, professional digital originals or 100 year old "can't take it out of the frame cuz it's stuck cracked and fragile" prints. Also consider the market you are in! Is the client's task from an area of historic affluence or a working class development? All these factors weigh in on how much my formula will push up or down.
