" How much is your rate?"
It is not very easy to answer you with a fixed number.
Would you please share more information about Your Products, your NEEDs, and your Budget with me first?

This helps me understand your company scale and your perspective on overall product photography performance.
The Price Influencing Factors below will also help get everything together.
Price Influencing Factors
Surface, Size of the products: Products that are non-reflective in nature will look good in a simple lighting setup, i.e., matte material/ paper and cardboard that is not shiny. The products with glossy surface or in an unique shape may require additional gears (i.e., diffuser) and photographer's knowledge to solve the problems. Smaller products take up less space and are easier to handle than larger items.
Total Images Needed: Every photoshoot has its lighting formula and setup. Setup requires time and the effort. Therefore, the more photos applied to the same setup can lead to a cost down.
Props/Ingredients and Sourcing Fee: For lifestyle and creative images, I encourage my clients to provide any props/ingredients that may be helpful. The more variety in props, the more options I have to pick the most suitable combination to compliment your products. Looking for props may take time and may occur a fee.
Background/ Surface Choice: I have invested many background/surface during my photography years. I'm more than happy to use it if it fits in.
Shooting Location: My home studio is where I produce the products photography. I prefer to do it at my home studio where I can pick any suitable gear when I need it. For photography on site, there may be a mileage compensation depends on the distance from my home studio.
