Images as "images"? Or whole scene as a complete 3d visualization project?

I would charge around 600 euros for a visualization like that one - but I guess it might depend on the country where you do your work. 50$ is definitely a joke for that kind of work.

Its the prize for all work. The client sent the 3ds, maybe made in archicad or revit, and you need to do all the rest.

Ah, and the work its for Canada ...

Considering the circumstances, 50$ is way way too little - isn't 50$ in Canada like pocket money? I would go with 500$ in that case.

"At the end of last year, as of December 2014, the average wage for Canadian employees was $943 a week – or just over $49,000 a year. This marks a 2% increase over the same period a year earlier."

I guess 500$ is absolutely reasonable after reading that. But this is only my opinion - feel free to ask others as well.

It is simple - somebody wants to charge the client 600$, but is willing to give you only 50$ for the actual work and make 550$ profit ;)

50K CAD is 40K US dollars. That is still a lot, I didn't know Canadian wage is so much higher than US. But the OP's client is canadian right ? Not OP himself ?

Regarding prices: It's always as much as client will agree to. Always...ask maximum you can get away with.

Price per visual depends on project scope, work length, type of visual, your brand, your client's brand,etc... but is between 600 to 6000 dollars in current market. Per visual.

I would estimate $50 CAD = 1 hours work local rate.

This is a real project and real prize, its not fake or joke.

I open this thread to know the margin of one work like this in diferent countries. For sure 50$ its very low.
And I upload this images like a start point to speak. I know, the images ar not "amazing awards" but I think its a normal-daily-work and the best example for this kind of discusion.

@Ondra: XD, its good business. but its not the situation. The client is a company of construction, its not a 3th in between.
@GestaltDesign: nice to see 50$ per hour
@Juraj_Talcik: 600$ at start point its a good begining for USA market. Maybe in Canadian market can be 550$ ... Anyway thanks

And why about European market?

Well somebody somewhere is hoping to get 500$ worth of value for 50$, does not matter if they re-sell or use it directly in their business.

Juraj: there is no such sensible thing as "average wage" in US - the disparity is just so huge, that averaging extremes does not make sense.

The Canadian Dollar is not all that strong at the moment. The current exchange from 600 US Dollars as a starting point would be 740 Canadian Dollars.
For a Canadian company to pay only $50 for these images would be a complete offence to your skill.

Let's swap to median.

I know there is a disparity but it still appears "average" Canadian is on it better than I thought :- ).
