I think the first thing you might want to check is your local competition. That would give you a good idea on where your pricing should be. If you do a Google search, you will find quite a bit of information related to your request:

thank you
I have done the competition check, its just that my gear list is so incomplete and mix matched, that im not sure how to base it. I have some really good stuff, but i am missing some key gear.

I was looking for more of your personal opinion...

Thank you
Michael

Do you have a video suite that your gear will be used in, or will it be used on the client's location?

It might be tough getting people to utilize your apartment setup. Of course it all depends on where it is located. If you are in a loft, it might work. There are several studio/rental houses in Houston based out of lofts.

Pricing wise it comes down to (again) your local market. I would do a market analysis and understand where everybody sits. From here you would be able to calculate a price based upon your setup.

Good luck and keep us informed as to how it turns out for you.
