Are there any guidelines for setting your fees for a shoot?

->> I have a friend who is the Director of a soccer tournament and he's letting me shoot the event, being this will be my first paid event, I have no idea what to charge. As far as I know I'm just there to shoot the event and he can use them for the website and promotional items, but if I get the option of offering packages to the players does that then change what I would charge? Last thing, so far it's all been pretty much on a handshake, should I insist on a contract?
Thanks!!!

Yes, you should insist on a contract. You also shouldn't approach this from the "but if I get the option" standpoint. You are there to provide a service that they need, and you deserve to be compensated fairly.

Contracts are essential -- they protect both parties, allowing everyone involved in the planning process a chance to agree to what the expectations, rights and compensation are for the job before any work is done.
