Pricing

Here is a guide to pricing for commercial photographic services. Please contact us for a full written estimate of any work required, or simply just to discuss your needs, after all, you do want the service to meet all of your requirements. All prices are for the UK (GBP) and are inclusive of VAT.

Simple product photography pricing

Rates for products photographed on a white background are straightforward and listed in the table below on a cost per image basis. Transparent or highly reflective items such as glass or stainless steel require a more complex lighting setup and so will incur a surcharge. Similarly groups of products, or products photographed with a more complex background require more work, and it is best to simply telephone or use the contact page.

Discounts

I am happy to provide services at a discounted rate for registered charities and small business start-ups looking to establish themselves. I also offer discount for longer projects and repeat business.

Usage Rights and Copyright

It is customary for the photographer to retain copyright for any images produced, though in general these are only likely to be used in a portfolio. You get non-exclusive rights for image on a small to medium website for 3 years (in all likelihood your product portfolio will have changed by this time, but if your business is different we can change this), The license covers a single publication in the local press. Additional licenses for larger website, national publications can be costed on request.
