To be higher it is important to be aware of production costs, which
include amortization and dead time.
Some cost factors are fixed and known in advance, others not. Some are
predictable, others not. And of course it depends on the quality of the
As an example, mileage is predictable but variable. Before you even
start shooting, you spend time and money to get on location. If shoots
can be grouped in a single time and location, you can spread these costs
over multiple VR. Else, I charge for mileage. My charge here in Quebec
was 0.55$/Km for the past three years.
If you need to do a lot of retouching at nadir and seam, the time spent
in Photoshop is not always predictable. An hourly rate for retouching on
top of the price for shooting and basic stitching may be appropriate.
Your average price look reasonable to me. Unfortunately it will preclude
some markets to you, due to competition by "drive-by shooters". You
don't want to be in those markets anyway, where the going price is
$20/pano but the quality is nowhere near the high quality you produce.
