My current rates* are $50/hourly for strategic planning or website development, and $40/hour for proposals, statements, cover letters, press releases, social media, etc. Comparatively, my rate structure is very competitive.
This usually totals out something as follows:
Artist statement (interview with artist, draft, polishing, etc.) = $200
Proposal for gallery or museum exhibit (cover letter, proposal, c.v., images) = $300
Social media strategy, tutorial, and plan = $150
Strategy session (4 hours; includes written summary) = $200
Press release = $80-$120
Initial website planning & set up (one that the artist would help design, edit, write, modify, etc.) = $250 - $350. Includes instruction. Hosting and domain name not included.
Payment accepted via PayPal or personal checks.
I always work in collaboration, with input and advice going back and forth.
* These rates are applicable though October 31, 2018.
I am currently working with several established artists on exciting projects, including a proposal for a career survey, a new artist statement, setting up a website devoted to a landmark photo series, and a launch event at an artist's studio.
