So you want to know the “real deal” – So how much is this going to cost me?
Photographic services rendered here fall into three categories, shooting on location, digital processing, and printing services. They all work hand in hand and you really cant have one without the other.
local basic service fees are $150 per hour with a $50 per hour basic darkroom rate
Each project that I take on has its own parameters that are unique to your needs. From the initial consultation to the finished prints, I take enjoyment & passion in making the images beautiful. My basic service fees are $150 per hour with a $50 per hour basic darkroom rate, plus expenses. I have package deals available for collection shooting and event gigs. Please contact me to discuss your specific needs. I handle each situation on an individual basis :)
A minimum 50$ service fee is applied for any shoot regardless of the time because of the necessary means to extract & process the digital data and to set up your account. I can prepare your assets for multiple purposes, from digital & web use to graphical applications and for fine art. Enlargements and specialty prints are available.
I want to spend my days making the best photographs ever, so my work needs to support my pursuits. I like to keep my costs competitive, but not insult the passion in my work. I need more data cards, better flight cases and a new lens.The money I make is invested into improving my service to you. If I ever drop my camera, I need to buy a new one. Im sure the average person may not realize that the gear I carry around costs more than my truck- and that’s not even the worst of it. My computer, internet hosting, software, data cards, cables, insurance, permits and the cost of living prohibit me from being able to give my work away, which is what I would do, If I didn’t need any money. I feel money immediately limits the value of my work…and really, should you aim your endeavors to be limited by any price? Regardless of the amount of money my work is equanimous in ambition and to make the image beautiful.
I always go a little farther than I think the next person will for my pictures. I am patient, I get my camera out early, I keep it out late, I look for those moments that you cant schedule in a ‘one hour photo session’ and when I get on board, I am committed to my project. There are always more behind the scenes stuff than you realize in the pictures, and when they happen, I want to be there to capture it. To honor those who come before me and to leave a trail for those who follow; I dont mind. It’s part of the mojo of what makes the things I do special.
