" What is your rate?"
It is not easy to answer you with a fixed number. The estimate will be based on your budget, your product types, and your needs.
Price Influencing Factors
Surface, Size of the products: Products that are non-reflective in nature will look good in a simple lighting setup, i.e., matte material/ paper and cardboard that is not shiny. The products with glossy surface or in an unique shape may require additional gears (i.e., diffuser) and photographer's knowledge to solve the problems. Smaller products take up less space and are easier to handle than larger items.
Total Images Needed: Every photoshoot has its lighting formula. Setup requires time and effort. Therefore, the more photos applied to the same setup can lead to a cost down.
Props/Ingredients and Sourcing Fee: For lifestyle and creative images, I encourage my clients to provide any props/ingredients that may be helpful. The more variety in props, the more options I have to pick the most suitable combination to compliment your products. Sourcing props takes time and will occur a fee. If you prefer photographer to help you on this, please indicate it in your inquiry.
Background/ Surface Choice: I have invested many background/surface during my photography years. I'm more than happy to use it if it fits in.
Shooting Location: My home studio is where I produce the products photography. I can pick any suitable gear when I need it. For photography on site, there may be a mileage compensation depends on the distance from my home studio.
Project Complexity/ Story concept/ Style preference
Post Production: Photoshop Intensity, cleaning, imperfection removal, cut-out, composition, focus stacking and etc.,
Usage: Royalty Free with unlimited online use. Other usage for prints/magazines /newspaper/posters/public signage, please contact Photographer for an estimate.
