I know a lot of people here attach Photography to the end of their name and shoot weddings but who here actually owns a business that is legit? I just wanted to pick your brain on How you break down your shooting fees? How do you deliver quotes to the client? When and how much should i expect to pay, percentage wise, in taxes? What sort of bank account do you have setup for the business? What insurance do you buy? Do you get any sort of wholesale or business discount anywhere? I finally have my business license, IRS EIN and all the other associated paperwork to become a proper LLC and have never done this before so any help would be great. I've been petitioned by an institution with very deep pockets in my town to submit a bid which could turn easily into full time work if I play my cards right. From what I gather, the photographers they hire now all charge per shooting hour, processing hour, contact sheets and CDs so I would like to stick to that I think.
