Each job is unique, therefore the approach to each job is unique. Establishing deadlines, coordinating schedules, determining the type and amount of necessary research ... these are all variables, changing from client to client. 

My aim is for open communication, for there to be a clear understanding between myself and clients. I wish to thoroughly grasp what you'd like from me, so that I may pointedly explain what I have to offer you. In this way, a fair price can be arrived upon that is agreeable to all concerned.

That said, my rates are competitive and commensurate with the market.
