Visual images are key to what we do as Commercial Photographers.

let's talk

Product Photography (Consumer Goods/Venues)

Stylish images do not merely record the likeness of a product. They evoke a sense of personality from inanimate objects, provoke desire to buy them, and give consumers a flattering yet accurate representation of what consumer item is under consideration.

  • Restaurants with food specials to post on social media, share on websites and other uses. 
  • Service providers who need images illustrating what they do for websites, etc. 
  • Manufacturers who need new or updated photos of what they make (and how it benefits users) so sales teams can get leads generated from catalogs, eCommerce websites, and other sources. 
  • Companies seeking images to illustrate their blog or press releases. 
  • Inventors wanting photos of prototypes for presentations to potential investors. 
  • Advertising for which the product is prominently displayed. 

Pricing & details: $65/hour with a 2-hour minimum. Time driving to & from the photo shoot location is charged, along with standard mileage of 54.5 cents per mile driven for business purposes. Image and video files can be delivered within the discussed timeline. Includes basic editing for color-correction, with deliverables via our password-protected proofing website or a shared Dropbox folder.

Perfect for:

  • Hotels needing photography of recently redecorated rooms for directory listings and travel sites like TripAdvisor, Yelp, or their internal corporate booking websites. 
  • Realtors seeking attractive photography of private residences or businesses for prospective buyers to inspect on their websites, MLS, etc. 
  • Interior Decorators in need of high-quality images to share with potential future customers as an illustration of their style and how they improved a client setting. 
  • Restaurants wanting beautiful captures of the ambiance for sharing on their website, directory listings, social media posts, or other promotional uses. 
  • Homeowners needing to document the contents of their residence for insurance purposes (Cloud storage or files kept on a storage device off-site).

Event Coverage

When a company, association or club needs an on-site freelance photographer to capture images and/or video of some occurrence, typically when it isn’t practical to send their own staff photographer or videographer.

This product is primarily for companies or organizations that need raw footage they can use for promotional purposes to get a ROI for a product giveaway, a testimonial from a product user, document a public appearance, etc. Also, edited or raw video footage is available as an added option.

Pricing & details: $50/hour with a 2-hour minimum. Time driving to & from the location of the event is charged, along with standard mileage of 54.5 cents per mile driven for business purposes. Image and video files can be delivered to a shared Dropbox folder within the discussed timeline, usually within 24 hours. We will need information about how long the event is expected to last, a contact’s email/phone, notes on what to capture, and style notes as far as a specific tone for the content and type of clothing needed (ie, casual or suit & tie). Note: We are also available to provide social media marketing and/or press release copywriting as optional add-ons to this product.
