Quantity discounts considered on a client by client basis.
Cost of models, props, extensive assembly/preparation, and styling fees are additional.
Postage for Return Shipping of the product(s) is paid by Client. Otherwise, we hold items for sixty days before disposal.
In-studio lifestyle shots average 2-5 times the above pricing because of the extra time it takes to source props and find models. On-location shots average 8-10 times the above pricing. Specific prices are by quote only.
Prices are based on shooting with either a white or a black background. If special backgrounds are required, there may be a prop charge for acquiring the materials needed for creating the background.
Images will be delivered in an uncompressed JPG format at 3000-pixel resolution, unless the customer requests a specific file size and or format. Files are delivered online, via Dropbox, as the shots are completed.
To achieve the best results, submit the best examples of your product. The better they look when they get here, the better the final images will be.
