I have had it 2 ways, per image,80 to 100 us $, and per roll, 150
US$,that is film roll of 36 shots. and for sculpture work there is
the 1/2 day or full day fee, 600 to 1000 US$.
The first style is best since no matter how many shots and time is
spent, you pay for the shot that you like and purchase. The second
rate is you would get the whole roll of 36 shots and pay, no matter
what you got, same with the 3rd style.
Hope this helps.
By the way I have found excellent jewelry photographers to be a very
rare breed. Part technician part miniature museum object handler,
part bomb difuser squad, and miniature object photographer. I have
also had photographers who have been “bull in a china shop” treating
the jewelry like it is some bubblegum pack jewelry out of the gum
So if you find a photographer you like they are worth their weight
