$54k base price? Seems almost reasonable . . .

This one is $64.500. Had a couple of extras but I can't remember what they are right now.

There are several elements to professional photography. You can either "just" do your own work, contacting companies, showing portfolios and getting contracts or you can get an agency to push your work but that requires doing some stuff you might not want to do. I USUALLY just do my own thing.

I have done brochures for Marriott, St. Francis Hotel in Santa Fe [back in the late 80s], a bunch of car dealerships. Setting a car like the C63, for a complete shoot -which this was not would be around $750-1200 for three hours. Work with models is more expensive because it takes longer AND you MUST hire an assistant who serves as witness/control. Keeps everything away from courts.

Over the past 20 years, I usually don't do many big jobs that take much time but do enough to pay the mortgage and house expenses so everything else goes to retirement and stuff.

Be aware you might end up 23 floors up on a new construction building 15 feet out on a 12" steel beam to get the right shot for an Annual Report. Tethers and a hard hat are part of my photo tool box.
