    Default Taking kids photo for a Daycare

    I am new to this forum, not sure if this is the right place to ask. If not, admin please redirect my thread accordingly.

    The principal of my daughter daycare approached me couple days ago, he asked me whether I have time to do their school photo this year. Their school has around 70 students and 10 staffs, what they need is some basic portrait for each kids and a class photo. He said I will create packages and so parents can buy the photo from me if they want to.

    My question is, do I suppose to charge the school for my shooting work? what's the rule out there? I asked some buddies, some said I shoot it free and get paid by selling my photo to parents while other said I get paid for the shooting as well as for selling the artwork.

    I want to hear from some other experienced photographer.. anyone has school photo shooting experience?? Do you charge the school for shooting? What's the charge supposed to be?

    By the way, I am in Canada.
    Thanks in advance.

    In my experience the school is not charged. The money is made off selling the photos to the parents.
