    When I did weddings I would regularly shoot between 20 and 25 rolls of 120/220.

    Eighty Eight rolls 120 and 35mm, between my partner and I at a wedding in Austraia, 8 am to 1 am the next day. I would have made my target goal of 100 rolls if I didn't have 3 out of 4 cameras poop out for various reasons. And you know, I distinctly recalled as I walked out the door that day thinking " I wonder if I should bring the F3P "Just In Case".

    About 5 rolls of 120 (6x7, so ~50 frames) while on holiday. I don't shoot film commercially though; my frame record is 1100/day shooting a wedding (8 hours) on digital.

    What's the most film you ever shot in one day?

    A full day of bird photography for me is around 10-12 rolls of 35mm, and by birding standards, that's fairly modest.

    A fairly intensive day of 4x5" could involve 4 Grafmatics, or 24 sheets, most likely shooting street style.

    Once in a while a dozen or so sheets of 8x10".

    For general image making times, 20 or so sheets of 4x5 and 5 120 rolls + or -
    For paid work, 20-30 rolls and/or dozens of 4x5 sheets.

    i think it was 50 sheets of 4x5 film for a job
    and i went back the next day and shot another 40-50 sheets
    for about 5 days ... ( documenting a quarry ) and for about 3 days ( documenting a mill )
    and about 5 days ( documenting a machine tool company )

    for roll film ... 7 or 8 ( maybe more? ) rolls of 120 just wandering around

    Usually about 10 rolls of 120 but I feel like that's my leftover habit from dig**al. I think I'm just shooting blindly and not slowing down, which was one of the reasons I wanted to get back to analog. So I have added LF to my equipment and that helped me down significantly. I am a lot more selective about what I shoot and how and attempt to control my "fire at will" urge. FWIW, I shoot mostly landscape stuff and not professionally. So the amount of shots I get isn't as critical for my purposes. It's more about quality and not quantity for where I am right now.

    I wasn't the shooter (gaffer) but we used nearly 200 sheets of 4x5 on a lexus IS250 shoot. The photographer said that wasn't out of the ordinary.
