    When you can use any camera, any where, under any conditions and shoot marketable images on demand, you are probably read to shoot.

    If you have some good marketing and business skills, then you have all the skills you need to get started.

    Pricing is one of the most difficult parts of the biz. It does not matter if it is your first shoot or 500th, your fee have to cover your expenses running a business, keep your gear maintained as well as being able to support yourself and your family.

    Here is how you can calculate the cost of doing business.

    If you business is in a market like Manhattan, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, then you will have much higher living costs, so that has to be built into the figures.

    What you are asking about is basically called “event” photography and what you can charge has more to do with what patrons ware willing to pay and how much you have to pay the club manager to get rights to shoot in their club

    Most event photographers use a camera like the Nikon D300 or Canon 7D, a 24-70 mm f/2.8 and an external flash.
