Default Professional rates (US)

Ok so I have my first official paying job with a company from the states. I've been asked to tell how many hours I've spent so far on the model along with my hourly rates. I wanna give an introductory rate but I don't want to get ripped off as a newbie in the freelancing world. So I need someone (preferably from the states) to tell me what they would charge for a professional job and how much I should consider. I have worked roughly 17 hours and they want me to also animate the model too.

Much appreciation.

'Sup Jono.

Youve already modelled without discussing rates first?? Hmm not an ideal way to go about it.

if this is your first gig, then 25 dollars an hour would be a good starting point. Providing the work is good that is
