I’ve been asked by a few people “What do you charge?”, and the short answer is… whatever you think it’s worth! You read that right – Headlong has no set rates! But as usual with such questions, the long answer is a bit more complicated…
I know there’s a lot of people out there who want access to the kind of services that I offer, and don’t have the wherewithal to go to a “professional” studio. Heck, I’ve been there myself, that’s a big part of the reason I decided to do this! But I also know that most of those people do have something to offer in return – maybe you’re a great chef, or have some fresh veges in your garden, or you can fix leaky taps, or whatever. I will honour any trade we both think is reasonable (it may also involve some cash).
There are only 2 rules:
- The terms must be agreed before work is started, and
- I will NOT agree to a trade that consists ONLY of royalties share.
So there you have it. If you have absolutely no idea what studio services are worth, then I sincerely suggest you do some research before you contact me to get an idea, but I promise you I won’t ask for anything unreasonable!
