Here's the lowdown on fees for my in studio portrait photography. Depending on the variety of poses, wardrobe and background changes, and general socializing most sessions last from 30 to 90 minutes. If a hair/makeup artist is requested then it's safe to add another hour to the process. Since we'll be working together in my studio there's really no pressure, time constraints nor weather factors to interfere. Rarely do I book more than one session per day which guarantees my undivided attention to each shoot. We work until everyone is fully satisfied with the results and since all images are shot digitally there's the luxury of immediate photo review as the session progresses. While black and white imagery and prints are my preferred style, if requested I can shoot in color at no additional charge.
The following are my creative and photography fees for a variety of different sessions. Each assignment starts with an in studio extensive preproduction discussion covering wardrobe, styling, background, propping and the exact needs of each client. My fee also covers time spent editing images and if requested an in studio post production review to assist in the final selection of photos.
PORTRAIT SESSION FEES:
Above rates apply to Monday through Friday bookings. Add $50 for weekends and Holidays and $100 for on location photography.
A $75 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking.
Some PhotoShop enhancement will be done to each image including minimum retouching. If requested extensive retouching can be done at the rate of $50/hour.
A digital gallery of each session will be available for review within one week. Notification will be sent with instructions for image viewing and if necessary the gallery can be sent to multiple email addresses. Since making a decision on what prints to order and the appropriate sizes is often a daunting task, clients are welcome to come by the studio and we'll hash it out together.
