Pricing commercial photography is not always as straight forward process as we all may wish to be. There are many factors on which quoting fee, for commercial photography session, will be depend upon.
If you would like the services of a commercial photographer, or require a written quotation, please give us a call or drop us an eamil to discuss your needs.
When we are approached by clients, we like to look at their photographic projects from both sides. We don't just turn up and shoot, we like to solve problems and offer sound, deliverable solutions that give them an edge and give us a challenge.
Whether your looking for simple, no frills portraits or a more involved shoot for your latest advertising campaign or annual report, we deliver above and beyond.
Since we don't like hidden costs, and don't see why you should either, we've listed our basic prices. We usually find it's best for us to give you a personalised quote and are happy to provide you with a full breakdown of our rates that will clearly explain the options that best suit your exact needs.
Before we can give you an accurate quote there's some specific information we need from you.
Every client's project is unique and comes with specific requirements, which on its own will require extra resources and time to achieve the final result of the initial brief.
Production charges cover the cost incurred by us, the photographer, for organizing and supplying everything needed for executing the production of the images we was hired to create. For example this include assistants,logistic, studio/equipment hire, smoke machine, etc.
How many images will be needed to be processed as a final product, is another crucial component when pricing commercial photography. Post production or the editing process, sometimes it can be a very time consuming process and it all depends on the level of details needed to be enhanced or corrected.
What exactly do you want us to photograph and where will the shoot take place. Location or studio?
Will the job require more than one visit, if so roughly how many and over what time scale.
What are you going to use the final images for web, print, editorial, general promotion etc.
Will you be using your images for an international print/billboard marketing campaign.
as a very rough guide for our commercial photography services. Entry points are from as low as £125 per hour, so we can fit within most marketing budgets.
A half day is typically 4 hrs £400 and a full day typically 7.5 hrs £700. Most of our work is charged at the Standard rate.
Prices are in GBP All photography prices are for guidance only.
