Some good work in your gallery Jefri. You and I have crossed paths a few times by the look of it.

If you tell us the organisation I bet someone here has done work for them and can give you a start point.

Good luck,

The World Bank HQ is in Washington DC, so I’d say you should be charging a rate comparible with photographers in the US, or at least be using that as a starting point in negotiations – they’ll probably be expecting a lower rate because you’re based in Indonesia, but in business calculation, your fee is supposed to cover your capital costs, plus profit – they are a bank after all, so they can hardly deny it.

The capital cost is the cost of your cameras, lenses, related computer gear (assuming you shoot digital or scan film) and other photographic equipment.

They might expect you to charge a lower fee than a photographer in the US…but obviously your capital costs – cameras etc – are exactly the same because cameras tend to cost about the same amount wherever they’re sold.

Perhaps Wade can give you a day rate applicable to Australia, but the average day rate for doing NGO type work abroad for UK organisations is about £250-350 per day (UK Sterling).

Depending on the nature and length of the trip – if they’re providing accomodation and travel for example, you could possibly negotiate a discount. But the fee you charge should leave you with a ‘wage’…otherwise you end up subsidising the World Bank, ya know?
