Standard product photography is defined as any photography for products/commercial use that does not include props, models, sets, or styling.
These photos are on a white, black, or colored background and are delivered digitally. For standard product photography I charge per image.
Final images and edits are completed within three to five days of the shoot date. Delivery is via an electronic gallery. Final images released upon full payment.
Commercial photography encompasses any photography involving models, sets, props, and/or styling.
Price may very depending upon the job. Determining factors include hours, date of completion, amount of images required, location, and post production needs.
All of my lights and equipment are mobile. I am more than willing to travel to your location however, this requires an additional set up fee of $100. This fee is waived for projects spanning more than 4 hours. An additional travel fee of $50 may apply to destinations further than 10 miles from my home studio in Sherman Oaks.
1. How large is your company? I will typically waive usage fees for small companies. Large companies who may expose the photographs to large audiences should expect to pay usage fees. The amount of the fee depends on the size of the anticipated audience.
2. Product Photography is typically licensed for a set period of time. Usage terms are: 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, unlimited, and full buyout. Longer usage terms require increased fees.
My estimates are based on how long I think it will take to photograph your project. As you might imagine, some objects are more difficult to photograph than others and thus more challenging items take more time. Examples of difficult objects include reflective or clear objects, white on white, and black objects on black backgrounds. Another time consuming aspect is the high degree of precision and consistency required (exact angles, camera position, etc).
Estimates are based off of how long I expect the project to take as well as your time frame for launching the website. If you are on a time crunch for the launch, I will charge more as I will need to put your project ahead of all other projects. Projects with more complicated designs, userability, and multiple pages will take longer.
