Answering a Reader Question #202

how much should i charge if im going for a TVC outside the country? 

Hi, 3strandedcord! Unfortunately, since I don't know any details about the nature of the project you're asking about, I can't really give you any specific info. Also, I'm not familiar with the term TVC...could it possibly mean Television Commercial?

If the client that wants to hire you is asking you to provide your own rate and has not established what they are willing to pay, the most important thing to secure from them is to have your transportation and accommodation/housing expenses covered. That is the first place to start. You shouldn't have to come out of pocket for that, especially if they want to hire you to work outside of the country. Start there and then see what they say. In general, such a project should be charged a flat, daily rate. If you would like more assistance with this and have details you can give me to work with, email me at: daniadenise@gmail.com and I'll see what I can do to help you.

Good luck!

Hi Dania! I recently opened a profile on modelmayhem.com and I've been getting offers from photographers to shoot. How can I tell which ones are legitimate and which ones might be a bit sketchy?
