EDITORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY RATES & INFORMATION
Both of our Editorial service options are the exact same quality when it comes to lighting, styling & retouching. We simply offer two ways to order so that you can decide which commitment is right for you.
The main differences between our Full Day & À La Carte services:
- You are booking an entire day with us when you choose Full Day Editorial, and therefore have an option to either come in-studio and participate in the shoot, or receive live previews via text throughout the day so that you can give feedback in real time.
- With Full Day, you’ll receive all the proofs from the day’s shoot (typically 15-30 images) so that you can make your selections from everything that was shot that day. With À La Carte, we do not take extra photos.
FULL DAY EDITORIAL
This is our full-service option for brands looking to acquire a large batch of images that they can use to represent an entire collection, or even an entire year’s worth of creative content.
Full Day of Shooting: $1,500
Retouching: $100 per image
The day after your shoot, you’ll receive a PDF of all the raw images (called a proof sheet) so that you can select which ones you’d like to purchase. Then, we’ll do the retouching on your selections and deliver your final images.
À LA CARTE EDITORIAL
If you don’t need a full day of shooting, you can hire us for Editorial photography on an à la carte basis (minimum order is 3 images).
Most images are between $150-300 each, based on:
- Complexity of the setup with props & jewelry
- Number of pieces in the shot
- Lighting style (soft light, hard light, speciality shadows, etc.)
- Level of retouching required
Some complex setups, such as underwater shots or elaborate scenes, may be more.
You can hover over the images in the gallery below to get an idea of how cost relates to the complexity of the image.
Props & Backdrops: You have access to our full prop library at no charge. A flat $20 backdrop use fee applies to all projects. For any props/backdrops that we source specially for your shoot, we’ll invoice you at our cost. You may supply any of your own materials to be included in the shoot.
