Depends on the client, project, and various other factors.. also which country your in. Some muppets in the US charge as little as $10!! per pano...

Also are you a commercial photographer? you would obviously charge more for a 360 pic that you would for a flat image. The prob in the 'industry' at the min is there are way too many 'have a go's' and hobbiests that will work for peanuts and think they can get on the bandwagon with poor quality work.

as rudders said, many factors can affect pricing, but like most things, it comes down to what your local market will bear - FotoQuote Pro can be helpful in determining a starting point, but even that may be very USA oriented -

The best thing I did was forget I was doing photography and start thinking that I am more of a specialist webdesigner.

My work is now about 10% photography and 90% computer work (processing and tour design).

Because each job is so different, you will only be doing yourself a financial injustice by trying to fix a price.

Its probably best to work backwards from an estimated hourly rate.

I suggest running through this pricing calculator from freelance switch - freelanceswitch.com/rates/
