I agree a fixed price in advance with all of my clients for time spent at their location, travel expenses and a set amount of images. For local photo shoots the travel costs are usually nominal. For further afield I add the cost of a budget airline ticket. Depending on the season and how far in advance the booking is made this can be much more cost effective than you would imagine!
Generally I prefer to approach my work in a low key manner and do not usually need to use assistants and stylists or models to get great results. However if a client would like me to source models and stylists I am happy to do so.
The number of images that I include varies because of course the needs of a small bed and breakfast is very different from a large resort property. Equally a small flat that needs images for estate agent portals can be covered with far fewer pictures than a seven bedroom house.
Either way the amount of images I provide is always generous and I charge a very reasonable fee for the purchase of additional images if you like what I showcase and would like to budget for more than initally required.
I always make time to show my work to clients before leaving location to make sure that I have worked within their brief and to minimise the need to re-shoot.
On my return from location I provide access to a password protected area for you to view and make your selections. All images chosen are then fully retouched and made available for you to download. Every image is supplied with unlimited international usage rights so there will never be any further fees to pay.
As a guide I charge £85.00 per hour. If you require me to attend for more than one day or have multiple locations I can usually offer flexibility to suit most budgets. I have provided the hourly rate to give smaller properties the idea that they do not need to budget for a whole day if they only need a few images. Larger hotels may also just need a couple of pictures of a new room set up or restaurant and may not wish to commission a large shoot.
