What are my rates?

My rates comprises a Design Fee and an Editing Fee

Design Fee

Apart from taking photographs on the day(s), a complete commercial photo shoot

reflects the time and skill it takes to complete the project, including preproduction tasks: Client meetings, site recce, and other site-specific preparation, and post production editing.

 

In short what influences my design fee is criteria like the complexity of the photo shoot/the number of days needed to shoot the necessary photographs, and the particular equipment needed for the job.

Editing Fee

Upon completion of the photo shoot, Proofs are uploaded and delivered to the client for image selection.  Once the client has selected the photographs, they will be notified about the turnaround time and the client will be charge by the number of photos selected.

 

In general, our photos come with a 10yr limited perpetual license (Editorial, Trade Show Display, Corporate Collateral, Website, Social Media (photo credit required), Professional Competitions, Trade Magazines, and Wall Display).

*like the Design Fee, the Editing Fee may vary depending on the particular photo shoot.  Please contact us for a on site consultation for an accurate quotation.

What if a contractor wants to use my photos?

The client's limited perpetual licensing only applies to the corresponding business of original hire.  If another party requires the use of these photos, I can offer a (1) Split/Multi-Party Licensing Agreement or a (2) 3rd Party Licensing Agreement for those that seek use of these photos after the photo shoot has been completed.

 

Split or Multi-Party Licensing Agreement

For photos with intended use by multiple parties, I suggest a Split/Multi-Party licensing from the very beginning as it adds more value to the client(s). 

3rd Party Licensing 

As for the additional 3rd Party Licensing Agreement, if a party approaches after the shoot has been completed, I simply charge 10% of the original shoot fee per photo.

For example

$28000 photo shoot = $2800/photo *3rd party licensing will also include the limited 10 year perpetual license for the 3rd party user.

*Generally speaking, A Split/Multi-Party License setup prior to commencement of the photos shoot will always be more cost efficient than a 3rd Party Licensing Agreement.
