How much to charge for University alumni mag portrait

I need to quote a price for a portrait of a person for publication in an alumni magazine for a large, public university(20,000 students).

The subject will be in NYC and they want me to shoot him with a NYC backgrop. The Univ is not in NYC.

I was thinking anywhere from $400-700. What do you typically charge for these type of assignments. Should I vary the price based on usage(alumni contact just stated it would be printed in one of their publications) or just give them a base price?

Sam—I think you are on the high side—-don’t get me wrong, if you can get it then go for it. I would say 300 bones if its fast and clean (journo style, where you go in with two bodies, and some speed lights) and maybe 450 if you are dragging sticks with lights into it.

I would include travel in the amount (300) as long as you are in the 1/2 day range with all your time——more than 45 in gas or travel, i would add it in as an expense to 350=.
