Product Shoots

 

Product Shoots can be done either in situ or in my studio space.

In situ formal portrait shoots require me to bring my camera, lenses, lighting and backdrops to your location, so mileage and travel time are charged in addition to my hourly rate for the setup, the shoot and the processing time (includes costs for one photo-assistant).

A rule of thumb is to calculate for medium-sized items that can be moved around by no more than two people — about 15 of these will take 35 minutes for setup, two and one half hours to shoot plus up to three hours of post-shoot processing time to ensure that everything you get is “picture perfect”.

Hourly shoot rates for myself and one assistant are $85.00, travel time is $45.00/hr (figured from Cloverdale BC) plus mileage at the rate of $0.45/km. Post shoot processing time is billed at $45.00/hr.

Items of less than 18 square inches can be dropped off at my studio and done here, so no mileage and travel time is charged.

Shoot and setup time for up to twenty items is two hours at $60/hr, with the usual processing time of up to three hours post-shoot at $45/hr.

 

 

 

 

Portraits of Folks

 

Portait Shoots can be done either in situ at a location mutually agreed upon, or in my studio space.

In situ shoots require me to bring my camera, lenses, lighting and backdrops to your location, so mileage and travel time are charged in addition to my hourly rate for the setup, the shoot and the processing time (includes costs for one photo-assistant).

A rule of thumb is to calculate that this will take 20 minutes for setup, one and one half hours to shoot plus up to two and one half hours of post-shoot processing time to ensure that every one of your portraits is “picture perfect”. Hourly shoot rates for myself and one assistant are $85.00, travel time is $45.00/hr (figured from Cloverdale BC) plus mileage at the rate of $0.45/km. Post shoot processing time is billed at $45.00/hr.

“Party shoots” for up to six individual portraits shot in the same location and day are welcomed, and are priced based on my in situ shoot rates with time revised to allow for reduced setup time and split travel costs. Please call to discuss for a firmer estimate.

Portraits done in my studio location incur no mileage and travel time. Shoot and setup time for one person who is appropriately dressed and already made up is one and one half hours at $60/hr, with the usual processing time of up to two and one half hours post-shoot at $45/hr.
