Preface

I’m here to create great images for you.

With every project I take on my main priority is to exceed your goals and expectations. I am constantly thinking about how I can really help push your brand forward. I love to work closely with my clients so that you feel involved and comfortable from start to finish. I always love to push the limits on the projects I am involved with - I believe that taking creative risks is what really brings projects to a whole new level.


Pricing

Pricing for commercial photography is generally broken down into 4 sections.

1. Creative Fee

The creative fee is based on the number of commissioned images, estimated length of the shoot, project deadlines, and the complexity of the shoot. As an example, a photo of a coffee mug on a white background would be a simple and quick photo to take whereas something like an exploding beer bottle would require a higher creative fee due to the additional time and planning involved.


2. Image Usage

Image licensing is determined by many factors. For small local business I usually include a non exclusive company usage that is good for use on the web, social media and small print runs. I try to keep it simple for smaller businesses as these images will almost likely never be used outside of their immediate region. Larger companies who may expose the images to a larger audience can expect to pay industry-standard usage fees.

3. Expenses

Expenses are unique to every shoot and may include but are not exclusive to; gear rentals, specialty equipment, supplies, studio/location rentals, props, food stylist, travel, models, parking, assistants etc.

4. Post Processing

Basic retouching and post production is usually included in the creative fee, but occasionally some images require additional work in post production to get the final stunning result. Images that require compositing (blending or combining of 2 or more photos) will require additional fees. Because this phase is highly variable and can be just as time-intensive as the shoot itself, it is usually billed hourly in addition to the basic shoot cost.


Contracts & Deposit

A signed agreement/contract and non-refundable 50% booking fee are required before the start of any project. The project balance must be paid in full before final delivery of the project files and any usage rights transfer is complete.
