RATES AND FEES
What I Offer
Clean, clear, creative images for a wide variety of media needs, including head shots, PR shots, product photography, and lifestyle/journalistic portraits. I strive for a no-nonsense working style that incorporates mobile lighting equipment and natural light. My processing is professional and minimal, and most "special effects" are achieved with in camera techniques, including realistic and hpyer-realistic HDR, creative exposure settings, and use of the appropriate lenses and lighting. I also offer mobility, scheduling flexibility, and a commitment to making my clients happy. Keeping up on the latest equipment, techniques, and advancements in the industry is important to my business model, and I always study to evolve my knowledge and skill so I can continue to offer my clients images which convey their excellence. I am insured, a member of the Professional Photographers Of America, and the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce.
Charged at full day and half day rates, if your photography needs are PR, press, or journalistic my rates are as follows. These rates include minor edits to your digital files. Major edits are charged at $50/hr.
Freelancing Day Rates
Half day (up to four hours): $500
Full Day: $950
Travel: $0.56 per mile up to 300 from Huson, MT.
Plane fares, taxi fares, train tickets, etc...charged at cost and invoiced with receipts unless other arrangements are made in advance. If meals are not provided I charge a $30/day per diem.
For these shoots I charge a creative fee that largely depends on what you require from the image and what your usage will be (national or local, large print runs or small, web use or print, etc...). Some shoots require more setup, the use of paid assistants/talent, equipment rentals (all rentals charged at cost, and invoiced with receipts) and specialized editing. Other shoots are straightforward, requiring one camera and a lens. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will work up a quote based on the above. I strive to be easy to work with, and am comfortable negotiating if you have special requirements.
