Commercial rates – Jan – 2020

Are you curious about my professional photographer rates? My rates will vary depending upon your specific needs. All my clients have unique requirements and therefore require individually tailored quotations.

In most cases, I provide a PDF quote after hearing about my clients’ specific brief, however as a very rough guide below are some typical guide prices for my commercial photography services. Entry points are from as low as £125, so I can fit within most marketing budgets. Here’s a summary of my professional photographer rates.

1st-hour rate from £125 – subsequent hours charged at £75

HALF DAY rate (up to 4 Hours): from £250

FULL DAY rate (up to 8 Hours): from £400

For larger or more complex projects with multiple days of shooting a discounted day rate will be offered.

Additional charges:

Post Processing: (general sharpening, colour balance, exposure and artefact removal); generally, 1 hour on a half day shoot or 2 hours on a full day. – this excludes major manipulation/retouching. Manipulation and retouching is costed on an image per image basis and is only undertaken after a discussion with the client.
Bespoke online proofing gallery.

Depending on the client specifications and intended usage of the resultant images, an image license may also factor into the overall costing. This is looked at on a per job basis.

Large projects usually require an assistant. Assistants allow us to complete your work more effectively and cover most of the lighting breakdown and moving in between sets.

Travelling expenses depend upon the location of the shoot. 45 pence per mile is our usual charge for jobs further than a 20 mile radius surrounding Belfast.

Travel time to your shoot is charged at £15 per hour, if the travel time exceeds 1 hour.

Hotels, flights and expenses (for UK and non-UK commissions) are charged on at cost.

For PR and corporate portraiture work, the above prices may not be applicable and will be quoted for on a job by job basis.

Price includes delivery of images by one of the following choices:
direct download via the proofing gallery,
FTP or email (file size permitting).
CDs and DVDs are charged at £5 per disc, plus postage.
