What’s your shift worth?

FREELANCE Andrew Bibby has updated his Freelance Ready Reckoner. In four simple columns it gives a chilling insight into how much we save clients by taking on shift work as freelances, and how much we should charge to arrive at what it would cost them to employ salaried, in-house staff instead.

It's at www.andrewbibby.com/reckoner.html - and take a look back at the discussion of why it is useful strictly as a negotiating tool, not a rate guide; this is still online at www.londonfreelance.org/fl/0609reck.html

Photographers should see www.londonfreelance.org/feesguide/phcalc.html for a day rate calculator taking into account your equipment costs.
