Probably what I would charge too. Supply and demand, they got um, u want um. They know damn well 80% of people won't buy so gotta cash in on that 20%.

Plus remember they are only gonna sell it once then it's useless to them.

there are 30 of us on our team. For the cost of one photo a piece, would you come out for 5 hours and shoot us for $750?

Its actually not a bad price. Once you have to pay for kids team pics, etc. its in line with those.

Usually, I'll look at them. I tell myself that unless there is something spectacular that I must have I'll just roll with what my friends and family take....they are free.

So the 18 year old girl that killed a 5 year old on the sidewalk with her car in Highland Park was charged with a DUI, she apparently had inhaled the chemicals in a computer dust cleaning canister...WTF~

well yes and no.

yes I would because I charge $150 an hour for something like that.

These guys most likely have 3-4 photogs set up at different stations to try and capture as many images as they can right? Say between 4 of them they get 1 photo of every participant. Now each guy is owed $6.25 of each photo sold so they need to sell at that price to make it worth their while to pay the group of them. The advantage of having them though is if I just came and shot it, I wouldn't be able to get every participant and possibly in multiple locations.

For a team of 30 - if you aren't all running at the same exact time - yes it would be much more financially sensible to just hire out your own photog and get more than 1 image each per runner.

It would be kinda fun to shoot like an auto race.
