Prices, Or Not
I have made the decision not to post prices. Each job is different and since this business is not a one-size-fits-all type of business, I prefer to price each job on it's own merits. For example certain additional charges may apply such as travel distance, lodging, hazard fees, permits or other unique items. Any of those would effect the end price. Please call (240) 650-2300 or email with any questions you may have.
Portrait Sittings – Our sitting fee includes up to 1 hour of time, unlimited poses and single destination. Includes digital proof delivery of images with basic color correction and editing. Once your proofs are selected, you may choose additional items such as prints in your choice of sizes and finishes, gallery prints, greeting cards, greeting cards, standouts, digital delivery and more. Each additional person will be a small extra fee. Additional locations are extra. Retouching services not included in sitting fee prices, however standard color corrections and minor edits are.
General Hire – Billed by the hour of shoot time. Includes single photographer for duration of billed time, second shooters billed at 50% of hourly rate. Includes digital proof delivery of images with basic color correction and editing. Retouching services are not included in price. Once your proofs are selected, you may choose additional items such as prints in your choice of sizes and finishes, gallery prints, greeting cards, greeting cards, standouts, digital delivery and more. Additional travel fees may also be included depending on destination.
Copyright Releases / Licensing – We include non-commercial releases with our digital image delivery. Standard print or product orders do not include copyright licenses. In the event that you need a commercial release, those fees are negotiated based on expected usage and distribution.
Proof Services – I generally offer online proof services, however if for some reason you should need printed proofs, I am more than happy to have images printed for you in one of several sizes. Please inquire about paper proofing services during consultation if needed. Please allow up to 2 weeks delivery of printed proofs.
Retouching Services – I offer retouching services on any of my images at an additional cost. Cost of retouching is billed hourly, or fraction thereof for small repairs. While I can repair most cosmetic aspects of images, but I always try to get the shot right to start with. I make all efforts to make sure our clients hair and makeup are taken care of prior to the shoot if needed. I can apply some of the cheesy effects that are done on Instagram, if it's what you really wish.
Real Estate Services - I shoot real estate images both interior and exterior shots to help your property look the best. Quoted prices include one property. All shoots are weather dependent (no active precipitation or storms). Images are delivered at a maximum resolution of 1280x720 and 72dpi. Includes online proof gallery, copyright license for commercial use, and basic color correction and editing. Total images depend on the property size and complexity. If any specific images are required, please note that prior to scheduled date.
Service Area – I service the Baltimore/Washington Metro areas to include (but not limited to) Howard County, Carroll County, Eastern Baltimore County, Frederick County, Northern Anne Arundel County. This is considered my main service area. I reserve the right to add distance or travel charges over a 25 mile radius from the home office in Ellicott City.
Distance Charge – I charge a higher price for booked shoots that exceed 25 miles from the center of Ellicott City. On average it is a 15%-20% increase from our starting price depending on the service. For certain charity events I may waive this distance fee. I will discuss any possible charge during our consultation.
City Surcharge – Any booked shoot that takes place inside of the city limits of any major city will may incur a surcharge to cover parking or other related costs.
