Let’s talk about pricing. Many of my students ask me “How much should I charge?” This depends on several factors that requires your own research and self-reflection.

When deciding how much to charge, please consider the following:

  1. How much are others charging in your area?
  2. Are there many artists in your area that offer the same service?
  3. How much experience do you have?
  4. How much investment have you put into your business?
  5. How good is your work? And how much are artists (with the same quality of work) charging in your area?

In Orange County, California, beginner artists typically begin by charging $200-300 after they’ve taken a few models. (More on this on the next module)
