    Question Question for traveling photographer.

    Advertisements
    One of my brother's friends is coming down to take pictures during homecoming for us. She did a Mother's Day session last year for us and I her work!

    She does military homecomings for free, and just asked for me to pay for gas.
    I want to give her a little more though because I appreciate her traveling to do this.

    My brother looked some things up and told me $.55 per mile is expected for business travel (so the gas part). She's traveling about 45 miles...so that's a little under $25.

    Is giving her $50 total good? I just want to make sure I'm not being cheap, ya know?

    Is the 45 miles round trip or one way? $24.75 if that is round trip or $49.50 for round trip (if the the mileage was one way)

    If the mileage you quoted was round trip then the $50 (including gratuity) would be enough. If that is one way then you would need to give her $75 to give a gratuity.

    Anyway I think the $25 would be enough as a Thank you

    Good catch! I didn't think about round trip.

    Thank you!
