I am available for individual and animal photography, collectables photography (especially automobiles but also boats and airplanes) and architectural photography.
My basic fee is a CREATION FEE which includes an initial phone consultation, an onsite consultation, travel between multiple sites, set up and the photography itself. This is regardless of the subject of the shoot. The number of subjects is irrelevant. I work primarily in Orange County, California but will accept jobs in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Diego counties for an additional $75 surcharge to compensate for commuting time and expenses. $300 for the first two hours and $25 for each subsequent quarter hour.
Follow up editing in Photoshop to create the exceptional image is time consuming, often more than the shoot itself. Any charges associated with this service will be discussed with the client ahead of time.
PRINT, MERCHANDISE AND ALBUM FEES are extremely variable. You can have anything from wallet sized images to large framed or wrapped canvas. You will be given an opportunity to crop the images if you select odd sizes. These will be created by the prestigious Bay Photo in San Francisco. Albums can be made up for you with elegant covers for table top or memorabilia. Merchandise of all kinds are available including calendars, tee shirts, sweatshirts, aprons, puzzles, mugs, key tags, tote bags, coasters, playing cards and even ceramic tiles. Prices for the finished prints and merchandise can be checked by “buy” for any available image and then selecting the print or merchandise tab.
Fees are paid $200 in advance and the remainder at completion of the work. Fee for prints, merchandise and albums are paid when ordered by the client. There is a $100 cancellation fee if 24 hours advance notice is not given.
