Saw this on A Photo Editor and thought it was so well done I wanted it on my blog. The first few minutes are golden in explaining how much to charge.
My only critique is that he's basing is Cost of Doing Business on number of work days (250) but most photographers don't shoot every business day. I shoot 50 to 75 days a year, so my CODB is much higher than his example.
